"We are rejecting the decision in totality, the O and D didn't employ the
evidence tendered by us and that played out in their ruling which we are going
to appeal, begins the statement.
"This was like a preempted decision by the O and D, the whole evidences we
submitted were turned over to favour Adamawa United. It's like justice standing
on its head. We have rejected this decision and we are going to appeal it. It's
as if Kogi United were not represented at the meeting, the last has not been
heard of this matter.
The NNL in Group A1 still have a match to be concluded after all games in other
groups had been decided.
