THE HARRISON JALLA PERSPECTIVE: NPFL In Free Fall As Owumi’s CEO Post A Greek Gift
The on-going organisation of the NPFL 2021/2022 season leaves a lot to be desired, so many sad commentaries from start to finishing the season.
Davidson Owumi (PICTURED), an astute football administrator and unarguably one of best in the country, was foistered on the NFF/LMC by the Honourable Minister of Sports Sunday Dare to rebrand the nation’s domestic football flagship, the NPFL.
Unknown to the Hon. Minister his good intention to revamp the NPFL was primed to fail from inception by the leadership of the NFF/LMC.
Davidson Owumi is certainly not in charge of the NPFL as we speak today as the current CEO of the LMC.
Owumi’s selfless track record speaks for itself as former chairman of the NPL and successor to legendary chief Oyiuki Obaseki of blessed memory.
No professional football club in Nigeria would have assaulted a referee in the full glare of the world and still retain their home ground in an ongoing season under Owumi’s watch.
There is a grand conspiracy to rubbish Owumi’s high profile, unblemished track record and the Footballers bloc will never allow this to happen.
What happened in Kano recently as it concerns Kano Pillars is a disgrace to Nigeria Football and a complete embarrassment to the entire country.
This act is condemned in its strongest terms.
The NFF/LMC must be just and fair in their dealings with all clubs as the sanctions against Kano Pillars are not commensurate with the offence of the Kano club.
