Giwa threatens to oust LMC

08 December 2015, 10:06

Abuja - There could be another round of controversy before the start of the next Nigeria Professional Football League season as chairman of Giwa FC, Chris Giwa, has threatened that the League Management Company (LMC) cannot continue to run the league.

Speaking to a local radio station, Giwa warned that elections must hold into the league board before the new season, insisting that the LMC has no stake in the league, and therefore cannot continue to run it.

“We have to settle this issue (elections) before the league starts,” Giwa said in reference to having elections into the league board.

“If they were able to survive it this year, it is just by chance and maybe because of the situation we found ourselves in this year.

“But the season has come and gone and honestly this issue has got to be settled. You cannot manage something you don’t have a stake in; you have to be a shareholder.

“The clubs should manage the league and the real owners of the league are these 20 clubs and certainly there should be elections and if there won’t be elections, there should be an agreement amongst the club owners, on who should manage their league,” Giwa said.

The LMC was formed in 2013 to run the league for one year initially, following the controversy that engulfed the league then, under the leadership of Victor Baribote’s Nigeria Premier League.
