National Sports Commission suspends implementation of Code of Conduct for Super Eagles players.

The Director-General of the National Sports Commission-NSC, Alhassan Yakmut, has said the Code of Conduct set for implementation for Super Eagles players has been put on hold.

Yakmut, who spoke in Abuja said the implementation had to be suspended until the issue of players’ early retirement from the team was addressed.

The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, had said this month that the federation would apply the camp rules as spelt out in the booklet after the public spat between Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama in Belgium.

However, yesterday Yakmut said there was a need to put on hold the implementation until the NSC was able to conduct an investigation into the recent retirement of some players from national team, expressing concern that some players were retiring from national assignments while they were still active.

He commended the NFF on Nigeria’s qualification for the 2016 Championship of African Nations and assured the NFF that the NSC would support the team’s quest to win the championship billed for Rwanda.

ELSEWHERE – The League Management Company has imposed a six points deduction on three clubs, Dolphins, Warri Wolves and FC Taraba which will automatically count if they fail to pay all financial indebtedness to players and Managers.

The decision to deduct six points from Warri Wolves and FC Taraba was sequel to the failure of the two clubs to pay backlog of salaries owed the players 60 days after they were served notices of Exercise of Surmary Jurisdiction by the LMC.
