We ‘not aware’ of court order suspending Nigeria Professional Football League – LMC

Nigeria-professional-LegueThe League Management Company (LMC), has insisted that it is not aware of the court order, stopping the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

Justice I.I Kunda of a Plateau State High Court, had delivered the ruling on Wednesday, in a suit brought by Giwa FC seeking reinstatement to the NPFL.

Kunda stated that the LMC and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), should not continue with the league, until his earlier order reinstating Giwa FC was followed.

However, the LMC said they have only been inundated with calls about the news.

“The League Management Company (LMC) has been inundated with sundry calls and enquirers regarding a piece of news being circulated that Plateau State High Court,  has made an order stopping Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) until the reinstatement of Giwa FC to the League,” a statement from the league body said.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, LMC states categorically, that it has not been served with any such order and is consequently unable to comment on this matter. If such an order is at any time in the future produced or served on it by due process of law, LMC wishes all our Clubs, footballers, fans, partners and all Nigerians to be reassured that it shall take all steps appropriate in the circumstances to protect the integrity of the NPLF.

“Accordingly, the LMC states that the operation of NPFL proceeds apace as scheduled and unhindered in any manner whatsoever.”
