NFA suspends NPL congress

15 November 2012, 07:31

Abuja - The Nigeria Football Association (NFA) on Wednesday directed the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) to suspend its congress scheduled to take place on Nov. 17 in Kano.

NFA's Assistant Director of Media, Ademola Olajire, said in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday that the decision was in a bid to ensure that all pending issues in the league were resolved.

The statement quoted NFA's Chairman of Media and Publicity Committee, Emeka Inyama as saying that the decision was part of determination to put in place a credible domestic league.

According to the statement, the letter ordering the suspension was addressed to the Acting Executive Secretary of the NPL, Tunji Babalola, and signed by NFA's General Secretary, Musa Amadu.

"I have the mandate of the President of the NFA to inform you to put all arrangements for the staging of the NPL 7th Congress 2012 on hold until further notice.

"This is as a result of several lingering issues around the Nigeria Premier League that have come to the fore and which must be fully resolved before a Congress can be called to set the date for the beginning of a new season.

"You may kindly recall that the NFA had earlier directed you to suspend plans for the commencement of a new season based on some issues.

"Now, other matters have been added for which the NFA issued you a query that has only recently been answered," the letter read.
