Nationwide league denies hiked registration fees

27 January 2016, 18:15

Lagos - The attention of the Nationwide League One secretariat has been drawn to a publication in some online media that the secretariat of the NLO has increase club registration for the new season from N50 000 to N150 000.

Executive secretary of the NLO, Shola Ogunnowo described such allegation as mischievous, unfounded and to say the least baseless. He added that the author of such untrue story should have cross-checked the facts at NLO's secretariat before going to press.

According to him, "There is no single truth in the story because we did not increase the registration fees rather we reduced it from what it was last season. Based on what the nation's economy is facing recently, we decided to review the registration fees downward and not upward. Last season the clubs paid N240 000 for registration which includes; insurance, medical, licencing amongst others."

Ogunnowo continues, "But this year, we are only asking the clubs to pay N150 000 which includes registration N50 000, Insurance N80 000, and Medical N20 000. So where is the hike in registration fees here," he queried.

However, he appealed to media men to verify their stories before going to the press, stating that the doors of the NLO secretariat are wide open to everyone and urged them to always check the nigerianationwideleague.com to get facts about the third tier league.

Meanwhile, Ogunnowo said that the NLO is yet to secure a sponsor but enjoyed the goodwill of its patron Patrick Ifeanyi Uba towards the end of last season.
