Nigeria Professional Football League suspended indefinitely

The League Management Company, LMC OKhas announced the indefinite suspension of the Nigeria Professional Football League -NPFL which was scheduled to resume from the World Cup break on Wednesday, July 18.

The LMC in a letter to all the 20 clubs signed by Chief Operating Officer, Salihu Abubakar attributed the suspension of the league to prevailing adverse circumstances in the administration of football in the country.

MEANWHILE – Nigeria’s Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung has insisted that Chris Giwa remains the president of the Nigeria Football Federation -NFF as was declared by the Supreme Court judgment made on April 27, 2018.

Last week, FIFA president Gianni Infantino, warned that Nigeria risked a ban as the world football governing body only recognises Amaju Pinnick as the president of the NFF.
