The NWFL boss, Aisha Falode, who confirmed the appointment Tuesday afternoon, stated that the board has no doubt that, Honourable Icheen, would carry out her duties without fear or favour and with utmost dexterity.
“After carefully selecting her for the job, we are convinced that Honourable Icheen who is the serving Chairman of the Benue State Football Association, is the best person for the job considering the high standard of the pro-league.”
Icheen, a former Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, will work with the Chief Operating Officer of the NWFL, Alhaji Ayo Abdulrahman in the administration of the Pro-League.
Falode, advised that all the seven clubs that will participate in the pro-league, should show high level discipline in all the games they will play.
She noted: “With discipline, the teams will give their best in the play-off and wouldn’t have to wait for any undue influence from any quarter to achieve desired goals.
“They must have it at the back of their minds that, only their best performances will guarantee them promotion to the Premier League.”
