Plans for an abbreviated league for the 2023–2024 season have been rejected by the Nigeria Professional Football League Club Owners Association.
Okey Kpalukwu, chairman of the newly elected Club Owners Association, said that the idea to have a shortened season was never discussed with or approved by the membership.
Last week in Abuja, the association’s freshly elected executives met with Musa Gusau, president of the Nigeria Football Federation.
For the avoidance of uncertainty, he told a segment of the media, “For the avoidance of doubt, the NFF President did not tell Club Owners and other attendees at the meeting that the 2023/24 season will be an abridged league.”
For the time being, we are anticipating the proposed meeting with the NFF and NPFL, when decisions will be made on the league’s launch date, structure, and other important issues.
So that we don’t put the wagon before the horse, let’s not rush.
