Nigeria Sport Minister Reveals Kick off date for NPFL

Sunday Dare, the minister of youth and sports in Nigeria have reveled the kick off date for the Nigeria Professional Football League 2019/20 season to be on "October 20 2019"
It is a well known fact that NPFL league has been on break since June when "Enyimba fc" were crowned champions after they defeated Akwa United 3-0.
The Minister of Sports further revealed that a notification has been sent out to all the NPFL teams apprising them of the new date.
However, he did not disclose when the fixtures for the season will be announced.

“We have been working round the clock in the last one month,” Dare told newsmen during his visit to the Golden Eaglets camp in Abuja.

“You will recall that I gave a directive that the NPFL should start on the 15 latest October 20 but after due consultation, it was obvious that the league can’t kick-off on the 15 anymore but definitely the league will start on the 20.
“Notification has gone to all the clubs to get ready. We are doing all that is necessary beyond the league announcement.
“But while the league starts, the issues that have bedevilled are under x-ray right now and we intend to attack them.
“We will be making some changes and we will be talking to a number of people and the federation and those in the past and present in the glorious days of the league.
“We have a solution to all these problems. We just need unity of purpose to solve them. I’m trying to unify as many factions as possible. So if their interests in the league are genuine we will move ahead with them.”
