Adedeji who is a player/manager stated ‘This is our own way for keeping our team focused ahead of this final weekend where we can’t leave anything to chance. We know how unpredictable Scrabble is but with the findings of our backend research, we have decided to put some of these measures into place as a way of getting optimum performance from the team.’

“We are glad that we have led the Division from the first weekend in Lagos last February. We took that lead to Abuja and sustained it before we had to consolidate our position in Benin. So, we intend to finish strong, and we believe that with luck on our side, we shall be victorious and gain promotion to Division A.’

NNL solicits for funds from cooperate organisation

The Nigeria National League, NNL, has appealed to cooperate organisations for funds to assist in the effective running of the second tier league.

NNL chairman, George Aluo noted that the unavailability of funds has hindered the progress of his administration.

“I must continue to express my appreciation to Alhaji Gusau for finding me worthy to serve as NNL chairman and a board member of the NFF,” he stated.

“My appeal is that corporate organizations should come to our aid and do what GTI is doing for the NPFL.

“We’re not saying they should give us money to put in our pockets. Let them take care of referees indemnity and once this is done, the referees will not be intimidated but rather be at their best and it will now be possible for teams to be winning more on the road as is presently being witnessed in the NPFL.”
