Nigeria Premier League to hold Congress in Abuja on Tuesday

After the cancellation of the previous venue, the NPL Congress will now hold in the nation's capital

The 7th Annual Congress of the Nigeria Premier League will hold on Tuesday in Abuja after the Nigeria Football Federation moved it from Kano.

The Congress will now up from 10 am at a yet to be announced venue.

Acting Executive Secretary who confirmed this in a letter dated 8th of December, 2012 and sent to the Chairmen of all the Premier League clubs said that delegates for the Congress are expected to arrive on Monday, December 10, 2012.

Babalola, however, could not confirm the venue of the Congress in the letter but promised to communicate same to the delegates as soon as the venue became certain.

The new date follows the directive from the Nigeria Football Federation after its emergency sitting on Friday where it set aside last Wednesday’s purported dissolution of the NPL management board led by Chief Victor Rumson Baribote by Club Chairmen, less than 24hours to the NPL Congress earlier scheduled to hold in Kano.
