Sports writers under the aegis of Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, Media Officers Forum, have lamented that chains of litigations are militating against the development of Nigeria’s topmost club side competition, the National Professional Football League.
The forum said this in a communiqué issued at the end of its inaugural National Interim Executive Committee meeting, expressing worries over the impasse invoked on the league by various mass litigations.
The communiqué,which was signed by its communiqué drafting committee, comprising of Sam Bariza and Jimoh Bashir, said the clubs’ spokespersons have resolved to work earnestly to project a positive image of the league.
They added that aside the issue of litigations bordering on the league, misguided remarks by stakeholders have further crippled the prospects of the league, and also alleged that intimidation, football hooliganism and infusion of fear is setting the league backward.
They urged coaches, players and administrators of the league to sheath their swords and embrace methods that would help improve all departments of the league.
