In a bid to institute a better-packaged, fulfilling and more fruitful elite league, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Ibrahim Musa Gusau, met with owners of clubs in the Nigeria Professional Football League on Monday.
In the meeting, the club owners collectively maintained that the NPFL has suffered from Lack of Sponsorship, No TV Broadcast, Poor Officiating, Insufficient Funding, Lack of Match Integrity, Matches won on the basis of Highest Bidder, Poor Infrastructure among others.
The Club Owners charged the NFF President and his Board to critically look into the aforementioned areas of concern and restructure the Nigeria Professional Football League in line with international best practices.
They called on the NFF President to set up a small committee of football experts to look into the former League Management Committee (LMC) and the current Interim Management Committee (IMC) and come up with a functional governance structure to drive the NPFL for development of football in Nigeria.
The Club Owners appealed to the NFF President to inaugurate the present IMC as appointed by the Federal Government through the Honourable Minister for Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare but with a short tenure.
