Augustine Equavoen has beseeched the League Management Company (LMC) and other stakeholders running the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) to overturn the decision of suspending the league saying that the move will affect the growth of the sport.
The Former Super Eagles coach, who led Nigeria to Egypt 2006 AFCON, where the Eagles finished third, noted that the warring parties in the NFF leadership clash should not let the crises subvert football activities in any capacity.
Equavoen stressed that players not participating in the league would put Nigeria football development in peril.
He charged the LMC to put their house together for the league to work.
“Players need to be continuously active to be at their best.
“The suspension of the League is not a good omen for a country. With the current crises in the NFF, there is no way football can develop.
“The issue everybody needs to focus on now is how to get things right after the Super Eagles early exit from the World Cup,” Eguavoen said.
