The Nasarawa State government has disclosed plans to meet with the management and players of Nasarawa United over the team’s recent lackluster performances.
This was disclosed yesterday by the Commissioner of Sports and Youth Development, Mr. Lucky Isaac Yargwa, in an interactive session with journalists in Lafia.

He said the recent poor performances of the club have led to public outcry which has attracted the attention of critical football stakeholders including the governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule.
“After 18 matches, apart from three draws, we have not won even one game away from home. More worrisome is the fact that we keep dropping points at home which doesn’t augur well with the fans and supporters of the club.
“As of today, Nasarawa United is placed 12th on the league table with 22 points, which is about one of our worst performances in the history of our darling club,” he lamented.
Yargwa, therefore, said in view of the present position of the club on the league table, there was the urgent need to act before the team sinks into the murky waters of relegation.
While assuring the teeming fans and supporters of the club not to be deterred or apprehensive, he said the state government would work in synergy with the management and coaching staff by doing the needful to return the team to its glorious days.
