The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has assured teeming football lovers in theÂ country that it will take a decision on the leadership issue of the Nigeria PremierÂ League without fear or favour.
Speaking in Abuja, NFF President Aminu Maigari stated: â€œI have no special interestÂ in this matter other than the interest of Nigerian football, and I can assure youÂ that other members of the NFF Executive Committee also have no special interestÂ whatsoever, aside from the interest of what is best for the Nigerian game.
â€œThe Executive Committee of the NFF will meet very soon to resolve this matter and IÂ believe everyone will appreciate whatever decision we arrive at.
â€œWe know the passion that our people have for the game in general and the domesticÂ league in particular. At the Nigeria Football Federation, we are also conscious ofÂ the importance of the Nigeria Premier League to our programmesâ€, said Maigari.
There has been an endless tussle over the NPL Chairmanship seat with formerÂ international striker Davidson Owumi locked in a tango with former Chairman ofÂ Bayelsa United FC, Victor Rumson Baribote.
Months ago, the NFF set up an arbitration panel headed by Justice Ibidapo-Obe, withÂ the disputants also contrbuting one arbitrator each. The NFF Executive Committee isÂ expected to take a decision on the crisis at its next meeting.
