NRA thumbs up officiating

09 April 2014, 17:23

Abuja - Chairman of the Nigeria Referees Association (NRA), Ahmed Maude, believes that there is improvement in the level of officiating in the Glo Premier League.
Maude noted that there have been noticeable improvements in the competition that's only a few weeks old, but noted that the association will not rest on their laurels as they will strive to sustain their improved performance.
The Chairman credited the series of seminars and training programs organized before the resumption of the League as factors that has brought about the recent improvements.
"I think our series of training and seminars are finally paying off," Maude told News Agency of Nigeria.
"But that is not to say that we will go to sleep, we intend to sustain this and even improve on it. I will attribute this to improvements in the commitment of the League Management Company (LMC), they have improved the welfare package of referees, which is laudable.
"LMC has promised to review match officials’ welfare packages by the mid-season. These are the incentives that we have been clamouring for and I’m optimistic that it will only get better."
