NFF To Constitute Boards For NNL, NWFL, NLO
. IMC To Remain In Office To Complete Mandate
The Nigeria Football Federation says the Interim Management Committee of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) will be allowed to remain in office and conclude its mandate before any decision can be taken on a board for the NPFL.
The NPFL board is headed by Gbenga Elegbeleye.
“Let me once more commend the IMC for the great job it is doing to reposition the elite division of our domestic League. We are enamoured by the way and manner the Board has gone about its mandate and everyone can see the transparency, probity and seriousness the members have attached to their tasks.
“The IMC will remain in office to complete their tenure as extended by the NFF a couple of months ago. Afterwards, the NFF Executive Committee will meet to decide on the best way forward.
“However, new Boards of the Nigeria National League, Nigeria Women Football League and the Nigeria Nationwide League One will be constituted within the next one month,” President of NFF, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau said on Wednesday.
The IMC was inaugurated on Oct. 21, 2022 by the NFF President, with an initial mandate of three months and terms of reference aimed at engendering a new life generally for Nigeria’s elite division.
In January this year, the mandate was extended until the end of the current NPFL Season, which is May 31.
