NFF reject owners ambush, Rumson stays



The Executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has unanimously rejected the resolutions reached by club owners on Wednesday to dissolve the board of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) led by Baribote Victor Rumson.

This was part of resolutions reached at an emergency meeting of the board of the NFF in Abuja on Friday. The NFF also ruled that none of the decisions reached by the club owners complies with the provisions of the NPL statutes.

The Executive committee of the NFF subsequently directed the immediate convening of a proper NPL congress in line with the statutes of the NPL.

It was also resolved that the NFF would send three observers, Emeka Inyama, Seleiman Kwande, Shehu Adamu to the congress and advised NPL members to conduct themselves in a manner that will not bring the game into disrepute and also allow the commencement of the 2012/13 season in the shortest possible time.

The NFF has also ordered for the 7th congress of the NPL to be held in Abuja on or before Tuesday, December 11, 2012.

NFF President, Aminu Maigari while confirming the development on Friday said the resolutions are for the best for Nigerian football.

“Yes, we (Executive committee of the NFF) had a meeting on Friday and we reached several resolutions which we believe are for the good of Nigerian football,” Maigari told supersport.com.
