DFA Denounces Illegal Body Running State League in Delta


The board of the Delta State Football Association (DFA) has drawn the attention of football loving personalities to the action of some over-ambitious persons who are parading themselves as organising a state league in the state.

DFA Head of Media, Timi Ebikagboro, said yesterday that “for the avoidance of doubt, the powers to run such a league is vested on the DFA and at present, the state league department is under the headship of ex-international, Edema Fuludu.”

Ebikagboro said that while the DFA is happy that corporate bodies are willing to partner it in the interest of the state and in tandem with the SMART agenda of the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa-led administration, “the body would appreciate if such actions are done with the blessing of the DFA.”

The DFA spokesman therefore advised all clubs in the state not to register with anybody or group that claims to be organising a state league, as it is illegal and does not have the blessings of the DFA led by Austin Jay Jay Okocha.
