NPFL Restart In Danger As Moves Begin To Enforce Supreme Court Judgment
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) is now in serious danger of not resuming from a two-week mid-season recess as moves to enforce a Supreme Court Judgment against the League Management Company (LMC) have got underway.
One of the interests behind the legal action against the LMC simply informed www.insideglasshouse.com that they have begun the process of enforcing the Judgment by the country’s highest court.
“We like taking people unaware and by the time we are through with the processes of enforcement of the Supreme Court Judgment, Nigerians will know whether we are committed to enforcing the Judgment,” Barrister Emmanuel Oboh of Emmanuel Oboh & Associates told www.insideglasshouse.com
He further said: “The LMC leadership mocked me when they manipulated their ways through the Court of Appeal, but who is smiling today?”
In January, the Supreme Court ruled on the legality of the LMC after stating clearly that the Nigeria Football League (NFL), which previously organised the country’s top football league, was still very much in existence.
The apex court further ordered the cash-strapped LMC to cough out the sum of over 240 Million Naira to the plaintiffs in the case.
The NPFL is by the halfway stage after 19 weeks of action with Rivers United of Port Harcourt top of the standings.
