MFM replace Bolowotan in NNL



Supersport.com can reveal that The Mountain of Fire & Miracles (MFM) have officially replaced Bolowotan FC in Nigeria’s second tier football class, the Nigeria National League.

Proprietor of Bolowotan, Oluwatoyin Gafaar informed supersport.com about the development.

Supersport.com can report that recent development after the club’s last home match against Remo Stars prompted the decision of the businessman to withdraw from the league.

“The environment doesn’t favour private ownership of clubs. It’s a sad situation because this wasn’t what I expected after our brilliant performance in the amateur ranks,” Gafaar told supersport.com.

Gafaar debunked reports that he sold his club to MFM.

“I didn’t collect any money from MFM. I decided to give Bolowotan’s space to MFM after speaking with the General Overseer, Dr. D.K. Olukoya,” he said to supersport.com.

Gafaar told supersport.com that the club will continue the league as MFM after their road trip at Akwa Starlets on Monday and next weekend’s home match against division leaders, Crown FC.

Bolowotan earned promotion from the Nigeria Nationwide League (amateur rank) and made their debut in the NNL this term.

Incorporated in 2007, the club were elevated to the NNWL after topping their group at the second National Division of Group B in June, 2009.

Bolowotan narrowly missed promotion in 2010 and 2011, but gained promotion in 2012.
