IMC gives assurances on NPFL resumption, new sponsors

The Interim Management Committee has given assurances as per the organization of top-flight football in Nigeria and promised to match their word with action in their bid to raise the standard of the league.

Followers of the Nigeria Professional Football League continue to await the new season after almost five months after league football was played in the country.

Chief Operating Officer of IMC, Davison Owumi, while fielding questions after the money-spinning NPFL-DOZY Mmobuosi Super Cup pre-season tournament in Lagos, revealed that the IMC had been working to perfect the conditions of restarting the league.

“We are trying to make sure that when we start the league, we won’t have hiccups. So, the delays are very necessary for now, but we will get there.

“After the interface with the clubs, the IMC chairman came out with a position on how we want the league to be and that is our position till date. We are just trying to tick all the boxes, so, that when we start, we won’t have any problems.”

In addition, Owumi said the IMC would continue partnering with Dozy Mmobuosi Foundation, but was silent regarding the N1bn guarantee from an unidentified bank.

“We are working on a very progressive sponsorship package, but I wouldn’t know whether we’ve got any N1bn from any bank,” Owumi added.

“This is supposed to be a preamble, and I think we will take the relationship between both parties to the next level and hopefully it will be very good for the game.
