Nigeria: NFF Gives NPL Go-Ahead for Congress

The Nigeria Football Federation on Tuesday gave the Nigeria Premier League the go-ahead to hold its 7th Congress.

Following a letter dated Monday, December 3 by the NPL requesting for the approval, the NFF replied on Tuesday that the Nigeria Premier League could go ahead and hold its Congress.

NFF General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu wrote, inter alia: "You may recall that this same issue was tabled before the Executive Committee of the NFF at its Emergency Board Meeting of Wednesday, November 28, 2012 wherein a decision was taken to grant the NPL approval to go ahead and conduct the Congress.

"Consequently therefore, I am directed to write to the NPL and give express approval for the holding of the 2012 NPL Congress in line with your statutes and to forward to the NFF the outcome thereon."
