The President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau has charged chairmen and members of the newly-formed boards of the Nigeria National League, Nigeria Nation-Wide League One, and the Nigeria Women Football League on Monday with developing viable plans and marketing strategies to propel Nigeria’s domestic football to new heights.

Gusau also advised the boards that at the start of any season, they should have clear plans in place for how to sustain match organisation and generally accomplish their responsibilities.

“We have picked men and women of high calibre, integrity and drive in order that we will have sustainable leagues. We do not want a situation whereby a league will get to the middle of the season and be saying there is no longer money to run its programmes. We believe we have, in the new boards, men and women who can turn things around.

“Therefore, the task of the new boards of the different leagues is to ensure that the momentum is not only sustained, but greatly enhanced in order to take Nigeria domestic football to new heights of excellence,” he said.

The NFF supremo insisted that the Leagues are the drivers of the domestic game, and must do the job of transforming the game of football in Nigeria to a robust and profitable business.

“The Nigeria Football Federation is determined that our football should be developed from the grassroots, with so much focus on young players, young referees and young coaches. While we will put up the policies, the Boards of the Leagues will have to put in the energy and drive to implement these policies and generally improve the lot of the domestic game.
