Nigeria: NNWL Cancels AGA

The Nigeria Nation-wide League (NNWL)'s Annual General Assembly (AGA) and the unveiling of its logo has been cancelled, the Chairman of the League body, Ahmed Kawu has said.

The AGC was suppose to take place in Sokoto on December, 18th 2012.

The league Chairman said the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) ordered that no league holds her AGA after the Federation's own which would take place on Wednesday (tomorrow) in Port-Harcourt.

Holds conference instead

Kawu said, instead of AGA, the board of NNWL have resolved to hold a stakeholders conference prior to the commencement of the 20912/2013 league season so that they can rob minds together and fashion out new ways of improving the league in the incoming season.

He further revealed that they would also use the occasion to unveil their logo at the stakeholders' conference which is expected to take place in the federal capital territory, Abuja in January, 2013 before the commencement of the new season.

Best 8 will take place

He insisted that the best of 8 will go on as earlier planned to determine the best team among the division B clubs who have been promoted to division A.

According to him, "NNWL will never disobey the directives of the NFF under my leadership, as such we shall only go on with the best of 8 and suspend the AGA and the unveiling of our logo till subsequent time."
