NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi confirmed this while reacting to news making the rounds that the league has been cancelled based on votes from Club Owners.

“We realized the power of the clubs as far as the decision on what to do about the league is concerned. What the NFF is trying to do is to have a very wide consultation. As far as the Premier League is concerned, we have to consult the League Management Company as well as the clubs so that they will tell us the option that they want to adopt. NFF will not try to force any decision on the league body and clubs. Any moment from now, a meeting will be scheduled between the league body, NFF, and Sports Ministry in order to come out with a decision on the league.

Reacting to widespread reports that a vast majority of club owners in the Nigeria Professional Football League had voted to end the season and therefore, the Points Per Game, PPG principle would be adopted to determine Nigeria’s flagbearers in next year’s continental club competitions.
