The ongoing investigation by the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission as well as Special Presidential Investigation Panel has been attributed as some of the reasons the commencement for the new NPFL season is surfering set backs.
Hon Nduka Irabor who serves as one of the Independent Directors of the League Management Company (LMC) offered some explanations while speaking at the launch of MATCHCENTRE.NG in Victoria Island, Lagos yesterday.
He disclosed that unless something happen, the new season may not see the light of the day in the near future.
He said “League gets money mainly from broadcast right. Now, we don’t have a robust sponsor, and we don’t have television for the league. We are still negotiating. What we have is ICPC (Independent Corrupt Practices Commission) and the SPIP (Special Presidential Investigation Panel) on the neck of many people.
Most of the things being investigated are internal rivalry, but some people have created the impression of a different thing. The atmosphere is not okay for our league to start now.
Some of the people involved in the running of our football are being invited for questioning by the ICPC and SPIP, and this has made the environment not good enough,”
