Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) President Ibrahim Gusau says the newly opened Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) is expected to deliver results.
Gusau, when inaugurating the IMC, said he needed to imbue the league with integrity, credibility and a firm hand on management and administration to change things for the better.
The president of the NFF, who opened the IMC at the Federation Secretariat in Abuja on Friday, pointed to the lack of television broadcasting as one of the main drawbacks of the elite league.
“There is a lot of work to be done by this committee of eminent and respectable people in Nigerian football, people with pedigree and real caliber to effect change.
“One of the changes must be to ensure that our league is back on television, and that there is a lot of integrity and credibility to the way and manner it is being administered.
“I have tremendous confidence in the Chairman and members of the committee, that they will justify the confidence reposed in them by the government and people of Nigeria.”
Gusau thereafter presented to the chairman, Gbenga Elegbeleye, the terms of reference of the committee whose tenure is to end after three months.
While responding, Elegbeleye thanked the NFF President and his Executive Committee for the confidence they have proclaimed in the committee.
