LMC cancel League match involving Kano Pillars after robbery attack

The League Management Company has expressed shock at the news of the armed robbery attack on Kano Pillars football club contingent along the Abuja-Lokoja Road and consequently ordered an indefinite postponement of their Match Day 1 fixture in Owerri against Heartland FC.

Chief Operating Officer of LMC, Salihu Abubakar, said the league body had been in touch with officials of Kano Pillars, monitoring the progress of the injured players and doing everything possible to stabilise the team.

He said all other fixtures of the Glo Premier League Match Day 1 will hold as scheduled but that the star match will now be a double-header in Port Harcourt between Dolphins FC and Kwara United and between Sharks and Sunshine Stars.

“Whilst we sympathize with the Club and strongly condemn this crime, Clubs are advised that the Match Day 1 fixtures will hold as scheduled except the matches in Port Harcourt which will now serve as a double-header and will be televised live on Saturday,” Abubakar said.

    Some of us that gained admission through direct entry and have completed all exams in 200level cannot see some of the courses that we have taken in the new website thereby redirecting us to register and take those courses again. The payments we made and saved in the old websites in our e-wallet are not reflecting in the new portal. We can’t see our informations again as regards to how you gained admission or even print your exams payment sleeps, admission letter and stuffs like that. At my 300 level am about quitting because the whole process shows lack of organization and appropriate management. In fact, it is a punishment on the students. Here in Owerri study center, students are told to come and search for their files in other to update information of his admission and 76% of the students cannot see their files. What do you want such students to do? Quit the school and let go of years hard work and money? God will surely put your generation to such humiliation and suffering too. Go get the old portal back, all the informations are their!!! We are not fools in this country and those we voted into power should rise up and protected the citizens.
