Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) has been suspended indefinitely until the League Management Committee (LMC) fully complies with the earlier order of the Jos High Court reinstating Giwa FC back to the league.
Court Suspends Nigeria Professional Football League Indefinitely
Proprietor of Giwa Football Club, Ambassador Chris Giwa had dragged NPFL and LMC before the State High Court to address the suspension of his club from participating in the ongoing premiership.
Justice I Kunda in his ruling delivered at the Plateau State High Court which sat in Bukuru, near Jos on Wednesday decried the tactics being employed by the counsel to the LMC, Olumide Olujimi, to delay the case considering that the Nigerian league is time bound, and the league would have effectively ended before the case is determined.
The judge declared the case adjourned sine die but also told the defendants that they can proceed with their appeal at the Appeal Court if they so wish.
