NNL Demands for Improved Officiating

The Nigeria National League has thanked the Nigeria Referees (Football) Association NRA and the Nigeria Football Referees Committee for their strong stand to ensure quality and improved officiating in the second tier League.

Recall, NNL boss Distinguished Senator Obinna Ogba, only last week at the boardroom of the NFF, met with the egg heads of the NRA and the Referees Committee on ways to better officiating in the league following reported waves of poor officiating . 

Buoyed by the tripartite meeting, the NNL is optimistic and has promised enhanced officiating subsequently.

It is important however, for all to note: 

1. That both parties resolved (The NNL, and the referees Appointment Committee) to ensure early release of appointed match officials weekly.

2. That Club officials are to avoid any form of contact with the match officials on arrival, it is the duty of the host state Football Association to receive and check them into hotels.

3. That thorough investigation of alleged inducement or compromise of match officials by any club official shall always be carried out and offenders dealt with accordingly.

Furthermore, names of referees that perform creditably well shall be published monthly for special recognition and recommendation, this is designed to encourage the match arbiters.

Equally, the NNL is already invoking relevant portion of the rules and regulations against clubs or persons in the habit of assaulting match officials.

The NNL insists that Covid -19 rules and behind closed doors match orders are still in force.

NNL Chief Operating officer Emmanuel Adesanya who reeled out the latest developments, also cautioned clubs to desist from inviting spectators to the stadium through any form of communications, noting it runs against existing Covid-19 protocols and crowd less match orders.
