The Premier League Congress may not hold as scheduled
Speaking in Abuja on Wednesday, Chairman of the NFF Media and Publicity Committee, Emeka Inyama, said the Federation took the decision as part of its determination to see that outstanding issues around the Premier League are conclusively resolved with a view to putting in place a credible first tier Nigeria domestic football.
The congress was supposed to approve a date for the commencement of the 2012/2013 season of the Nigeria Premier League.
“The NFF wrote the letter based on the need to put all lingering matters to rest before we can start talking about a new season. This is of high importance,” Mr. Inyama said.
In the letter, the football federation told the Premier League that “You may kindly recall that the Nigeria Football Federation had earlier directed you to suspend plans for the commencement of a new season based on some issues. Now, other matters have been added, for which the NFF issued you a query that has only recently been answered.”
