Elegbeleye Rues Poor Officiating In NPFL


Chairman, Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye

has identified poor officiating as the major challenge facing the league.

He condemned questionable officiating by some referees that doesn’t portray the league in good light.

The former lawmaker vowed to confront the problem and leave a much desired league which everyone will be proud of and that can compete with top leagues in the world behind.

“It’s heartbreaking and mind-blowing when you see some officiatings, and you wonder how come?,” Elegbeleye told Sportsday.

“Some are so glaring for all to see that even a non referee couldn’t have made such a questionable call.

“This has become a major challenge which we are working assiduously round the clock to see how we can address the problem permanently or at least reduce it to the barest minimum.

“Don’t get me wrong, there have been some excellent refereeings, but these bad eggs are what we are trying to expunge from the league.

“We are certainly not there yet but everyone can attest that the league has made some improvements and it’s better than we met it.”
