NPL acting executive secretary, Tunji Babalola
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has queried the leadership of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) in respect of allegations of inappropriate management of funds related to broadcast right fees, as contained in the report of its auditors.
Speaking in Abuja at the weekend, NFF President Aminu Maigari said: “The NFF is highly concerned for the integrity of the Nigeria Premier League, which has been built to a presentable brand as a result of over 20 years of hard work, and which was recently rated as best in Africa.
“We cannot afford to fold our arms and remain silent over such a matter that directly attacks the credibility of an important aspect of the Nigeria game.
“The NFF is deeply concerned and we are determined to get to the root of this matter.”
Officials confirmed at the weekend that the Nigeria Football Federation is only awaiting a detailed response from the leadership of the Nigeria Premier League before taking further action.
