Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation has issued out
warning to all 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory,
not to default on the date for final matches of the State preliminaries of the
2014 Federation Cup.
Some weeks ago, the NFF rolled out the schedule for this
year's competition, making it clear that all States must play their final matches
on or before May 4.
Speaking in Abuja on Thursday, Head of Federation Cup, Ruth
David said the Federation would not tolerate a case of some States defaulting
on the schedule.
"It is important that all States conclude their
competitions this weekend and let us have the two representatives for the
national finals. We will not have any State saying it has postponed its final matches
or shifted some games to a different date.
"This year is quite busy for the Federation, with so
many programmes within and abroad. We want to keep firmly to the schedule and
play the final match on Sunday, August 3 as has been announced."
