Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, Gabriel Aduda, has warned that the Nigeria Professional Football League will not resume until basic conditions are fulfilled.
Aduda stated this on Saturday, following the federal government’s approval for sports activities to resume nationwide behind closed doors.
The FG, through the implementation guideline for phase three of the eased lockdown on September 3, granted permission for the resumption of sporting leagues without fans.
But Aduda stated that necessary steps would be put in place first by the Nigeria Football Federation and clubs, before the league, which was cancelled in March, would resume.
“Indeed, the steps to return our football league to prime position is ongoing,” Aduda said in a statement signed by the media aide to the sports minister, John-Joshua Akanj. (Punch)
