Referees Vow To Maintain Consistency As NPFL Matchday 2 Take Centre Stage

As the 2021 Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL enters Week 2, the Nigeria Referees Association, NRA, has assured the football family in the country that the match officials shall continue with correct officiating.

This was made known by the NRA president, Otunba Tade Azeez while reviewing conduct of match officials in last Sunday’s league opener.

Otunba Tade Azeez who said that the Association won’t condone any attempt to ridicule the game asked referees to remain upright without minding teams involved in the matches.

He reminded members on duty about the need to be safety conscious while on transit and always apply required Covid 19 preventive procedures during the matches.

Otunba Tade Azeez wished all best of luck
