NFF Reportedly Sacks NNL, NLO, NWPL Boards

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has reportedly dissolved the boards of the country’s second and third-tier football leagues as well as the body overseeing women’s football according to unconfirmed media reports.

The reports suggest that the boards of the second-tier Nigeria National League (NNL), third-tier Nationwide League One (NLO) and the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) were dissolved in a decision the NFF reached last week.

The NFF are yet to confirm the development.

If confirmed, however, it then means that NNL chairman Chidi Ofo Okenwa, his NLO counterpart Mohammed Alkali and NWFL head Aisha Falode have all relinquished their positions along with members of their various boards.

It would mean a premature end to the tenures of the board members who were reappointed to their positions in 2018 for a 2-year tenure.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria National League has yet to resume following their break for Christmas despite setting a January resumption date.

No new date has been fixed for the new Nigeria Women Professional League (NWPL) season following the conclusion of the 2018/2019 season last November while the NLO announced 26 March as kickoff date for the 2019/2020 season.
