NPFL Back On SuperSport TV If Owumi In Full Control Of LMC Finances
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) could soon be back on the screens of the SuperSport Television should LMC CEO Davidson Owumi be appointed the first signatory of the finances of the league organising company, it has been specially gathered.
SuperSport ceased to be broadcast partners of the NPFL in 2017 and till date the LMC under the chairmanship of Shehu Dikko has not thought it proper to officially explain the reasons behind the abrupt end of that partnership.
Mismanagement, breaches of contract and various uncertainties surrounding the league are believed to have chased the South African pay TV company.
The domestic league thereafter suffered from television blackout until the live streaming of the matches last season.
Owumi has met with the SuperSport bosses and they have made it clear that the TV company is open to do business again with the NPFL but only if the former Enugu Rangers boss will be in charge of the finances of the LMC.
“Like has been the case with several other sponsors, SuperSport is ready to do business again with the league, but they want Owumi to be the ‘A’ signatory of the LMC accounts, just as Nduka Irabor was when he was the CEO,” a top source informed www.insideglasshouse.com
“We wait to see how this one plays out.”
