NPFL Club Owners Chairman Calls For Caution Over League Cancellation
The Chairman, Nigeria Professional Football League Club Owners Association of Nigeria, COAN, Isaac Danladi, has urged members to stay calm as they edge close to taking a decision on the 2019/2020 league season.
Barrister Danladi gave warning due to the recent outburst between clubs and the association after it was reported that the season will be brought to an end via Point Per Game, PPG system.
The Club owners’ chairman pleaded with members not to allow the ongoing issues to disrupt the existing unity that they have sustained over the years.
He assured that the best decision will be arrived at once the Covid-19 challenges are over and all issues will be professionally addressed accordingly.
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) has been suspended since March following the spread of the coronavirus to the West African country.
The chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 and secretary to the federal government, Boss Mustapha, recently stated the government is not excited to reopen sporting activities as the number of confirmed cases of the virus continues to rise in the country.
The League Management Company (LMC) had proposed four options to end the league, including a point-per-game (PPG) method, which was subjected to a vote at the weekend.
20 NPFL club chairmen were involved in a virtual voting process on the best options to end the NPFL 2019/20 season, with 17 of them voting to end the season, with the top three clubs representing Nigeria at CAF competitions via the Points Per Game table and that there should not be promotion or relegation of any clubs.
