The
7th Annual Congress of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) earlier scheduled for
last Thursday in Kano will now hold in Abuja on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 as
from 10am.
Acting
Executive Secretary, Tunji Babablola who confirmed this in a letter dated 8th
of December, 2012 and sent to the Chairmen of all the Premier League clubs said
that delegates for the Congress are expected to arrive on Monday, December 10,
2012.
Babalola,
however, could not confirm the venue of the Congress in the letter but promised
to communicate same to the delegates as soon as the venue became certain.
The
new date follows the directive from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) after
its emergency sitting on Friday where it set aside last Wednesday’s purported
dissolution of the NPL management board led by Chief Victor Rumson Baribote (In pic) by
some club chairmen, less than 24hours to the NPL Congress earlier scheduled to
hold in Kano.
The
NFF in its communiqué reasoned that the purported dissolution of the NPL board
was done without recourse to the Statutes of the NPL, and, particularly,
described the meeting as not properly convened to deliberate on such a serious
constitutional matter.
