The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has announced that the new board of the League Management Company will be inaugurated before the commencement of the 2014/15 League season in March.
Speaking to journalists at the NFF Executive Committee meeting in Lagos on Thursday, Chairman of the NFF Media and Publicity Committee, Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande, clarified that there is no affirmation or ratification yet on who are the members of the new LMC Board.
“In line with the decision of the Congress at the General Assembly held in Lagos on November 23, 2014, the Selection Committee has met and come up with a list,” he said.
“However, it is important to make it clear that the list has not been ratified. We will finalize on the list very soon and I can assure, on behalf of the NFF Executive Committee, that the Board of League Management Company will be inaugurated before the commencement of the new season, which has been set for March 7,” he added.
However, the LMC announced last year December that Shehu Dikko has been appointed as the new head for the League Company, to take over from Nduka Irabor.
The 2014/15 Premier League Season will commence on March 7 as announced by the LMC.
