The Board of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL), has postponed the kick-off of the 2023/2024 season earlier scheduled for Saturday.
Andrew Ekejiuba, media officer of GTI/NFF, said this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.
He said the league’s kick-off was postponed to allow its members to focus on the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) holding in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.
NAN reports that no new date had been set at the time of this report.

Davidson Owumi, the Chief Operating Officer (CEO) of the league body, explained that: “We had everything set for the kick-off in Ibadan on Saturday, but we had to postpone the event following representations from multiple stakeholders.
”More cogent is the complex logistics involved in having our Chairman and the leaders of clubs travel from Ibadan to Uyo.
“Note, therefore, that there will be no flag-off game as originally planned,” he said.
Owumi said a new kick-off date would be communicated in a few days.
”The postponement has been communicated to the clubs so that they can stand down the travel plans already made,” he added. (NAN)
