NPFL: Enyimba threaten to pull out of the league

The management of the league defending champions, Enyimba International of Aba has accused the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) of being bias in docking the team two points in the match played against Doma United. 

The NFF Disciplinary Committee has ruled that Enyimba be docked of the two points and the result remains as it was before the incident that led to the referee going to watch the replay from a Startimes OB van at the stadium. 

Enyimba in its reaction, accused  the NPFL board of trying to manipulate Enyimba results to favour some teams for continental slots. 

They said Enyimba will have no option than to boycott the league and withdraw their membership of the NPFL.

“We’ve never had it this bad before in this league.

” Overall, the NPFL’s decision against Enyimba is detrimental to the league’s reputation, competitiveness, and potential for growth. It undermines the trust and confidence that stakeholders have in the league administration and raises concern about the fairness and integrity of the competition”. 

“The NPFL’s decision against Enyimba is very bad for the league as charcoal turning into sugar”. 

They pointed out Lack of consistency, disruption to the League, negative impact on Enyimba’s reputation, discouragement for clubs and fans, Impact on league sponsorship and TV rights, as some of the negative impacts the decision will have on the league.
