The chairman of the League Management Committee (LMC), Mr. Nduka Irabor has said that the Nigerian Football League (NFL) is an illegal entity and that his organisation was set up to run the league effectively.

Mr. Nduka, while speaking about the issues on the LMC registration on Channels Television’s breakfast show Sunrise Daily, revealed that a declaration initially made by the Abuja High Court confirmed the falsity of the NFL.

According to him, the Nigerian Football federation (NFF) has decided to invite experts to reform the league as well as the finance or funding and the sponsorship support.

The call for experts is to help address the domestic drift that has crippled the league relentlessly.

He added that the committee has also given the league a legal platform by incorporating a company to manage the league and that by the constitution the law empowers the NFA to run football.

He also highlighted the terms of references which include developing new standards and contracts for players.
