NFF, LMC satisfied with Nigerian League's progress

02 July 2015, 07:55

Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation and the League Management Company have expressed satisfaction with the current state of the Nigerian football leagues, especially the Nigeria Professional Football League.

At a joint press briefing of the NFF Organizing Committee, the League Management Company and the NFF Referees Committee in Abuja on Tuesday, NFF 1st Vice President Seyi Akinwunmi expressed confidence that the Leagues can only get better, in the face of ‘the commitment of the Amaju Pinnick –led NFF towards taking Nigeria football to new heights’.

“These wonderful results, we have always expected because of the carefully-laid-down training programme for the referees and the referee assessors vis-à-vis capacity building for referees in the United Kingdom and the series of seminars organized here in Nigeria for the referees and referee assessors.

“We feel delighted that FIFA acknowledge our efforts and the commitment of the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF towards taking Nigerian football to new heights, by approving a very special training course for our referees, referee assessors and physical fitness trainers which had been organized in Abuja from 23 – 29 May, 2015.”

NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, reiterated the readiness of the present NFF team to run a transparent, accountable administration for the good of the Nigeria game, and charged the media to provide its invaluable support all the way, and also not to be shy to come forward with useful information that could help eradicate unhealthy practices.
