The organizer of the Nigeria National League have postponed the Annual General meeting scheduled to take place March 6th to Wednesday march 20th, following the inability of some clubs to register for the 2018-2019 season.
It will be the second time the Annual General Meeting is going to be shifted forward after the first one which was supposed to took place February 25th was shifted to march 6th before being shifted forward again to March 20th.
The NNL Management has deferred the AGM and draw by sixteen days,to now hold on Wednesday 20th March,2019 at the earlier announced venue and time.
According to Mr.Lawrence Katken,League’s Chief Operating Officer “This makes it practically impossible to go ahead with the AGM/Draw fixed for Wednesday 6th of this month ”
“Since the official carried draw will be carried out,we do not want to work in assumption or speculation on the number of clubs that will participate in the new season”
Clubs who are yet to register have therefore been mandated to do so,to enable the League move on and management to execute its proposed plans for the year.
Mr Katken further stated that any club that fail to register on or before Friday the 15th of March,2019 ,will give the League body no option than to conduct the draw and work with the registered clubs.
He ended with apology to everyone on the inconveniences the shelving of the AGM and Draw may have caused, noting it was done with a deliberate intent for the good of the League.
