Lagos - The planned resumption of the Glo Nigerian Premier
League has come under threat after the League Management Company (LMC) kicked
out two clubs from the League, KickOff Nigeria reports.
The League was billed to resume today (Friday) with Enugu
Rangers playing host to Nembe City in the opening game of the season. However,
the LMC on Thursday announced that only eighteen clubs have been certified fit
to participate in the new 2013/14 Glo Premier League season, thus ruling out
Nembe City and Giwa FC, who failed to meet the compulsory minimum requirements.
The LMC’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), Salihu Abubakar
made the announcement, adding that 18 Clubs that substantially met the
requirements have received provisional approvals to compete in the League.
