Also on the committee are Alloy Chukwuemeka and Dodo Isah as members, with Lawrence Katken as secretary. The Adhoc team will conduct the Congress and are expected to announce a new date for the commencement of the NNL season after the draws have been made.

The kick off of the League has severally been postponed as a result of the decision of the NFF to set up the Adhoc Committee, which followed the expiration of the tenure of the former Board led by Emeka Inyama.

New rules and guidelines to run the League will also be adopted at Wednesday’s congress.

Chairmen of all clubs in the National League are expected to be in attendance for the Congress, scheduled to hold at the Top Rank Hotel, Utako.
