Abuja - Rumson Baribote, the Chairman, Nigeria Premier League (NPL), on Wednesday commended the NFA for its intervention in the crisis within the league.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Special Assistant (Media), Mr Idu Jude, in Abuja on Wednesday.
Baribote, while expressing gratitude to the NFA Board, said that the intervention demonstrated major qualities of great leadership in NFA.
He said it had avoided imminent political tussle that would have put another setback to the entire progress of Nigeria's football.
He expressed appreciation to Nigerians and sports media, thanking them for their support, adding that the truth would prevail at the end of the day.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some NPL club owners passed a vote of no confidence on the chairman of the board, alleging lack of accountability and transparency.
But the NFA, in a reaction to the situation, put the NPL congress, which was meant to take place in Kano on December 6, on hold.
