NFF satisfied with NPL congress



The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has expressed satisfaction with Tuesday's Nigeria Premier League (NPL) congress held in Abuja.

One of the three observers from the NFF, Emeka Inyama told supersport.com that he is content with the procedure and organisation of the NPL congress.

He added that the NFF observing team, which included Shehu Adamu and Suleiman Yahaya Kwande, will report back to the football federation.

But he said the Premier League will forward all of its decisions to the NFF.

"Well as an observer I don't think I have much to say. The communique for the NPL congress is already out and we just did our jobs as observers. But I'm satisfied with the procedure of the (NPL) congress as witnessed.

"As observers, we will get back to those who sent us but it is the NPL that will send the decisions taken at the congress to the NFF and not us (the observers)," said Inyama, who chairs the Nigeria National League (NNL).

At the seventh NPL congress, 19 clubs unanimously agreed to dissolve the Premier League board chaired by Victor Baribote Rumson "and mandated the Acting Executive Secretary (Tunji Babalola) to take over the affairs of the league pending further consultation."

The NPL congress also lifted the suspensions of Okey Kpalukwu, Farouk Yarma and Akin Akinbobola.

It also reinstated expelled club, Ocean Boys into the league by demoting them to the NNL.

February 16, 2013 was tentatively fixed as kick-off date for the 2012/13 season by the NPL congress.
