NPFL: LMC Dismisses Rivers United’s Protest


The League Management Company of the Nigeria Professional Football League on Friday dismisses Rivers United’s protest against Jigawa Golden Stars for fielding an ineligible player in their match day 34 clash, BSNSports.com.ng reports.

Christopher Richard of Jigawa Golden Stars having received 5-yellow cards prior to the encounter was ineligible for the game but the club went ahead to use him with claims that they are unaware of his suspension and Rivers United having petitioned LMC on the issue, the Port Harcourt based club received a judgement from the management team of the league.

According the release from LMC, it was stated that Jigawa Golden Stars did not receive any mail from the official from the body, notifying them of Christopher’s ineligibility and as a result cannot be petitioned.

It also states that Rivers United’s protest has been dismissed with the 2-1 scoreline which was in Favour Jigawa Golden Stars stays while offering Rivers United a 48-hours ultimatum to appeal the decision.


The decision dashed Rivers United’s hope of three points from the game, and their hopes of continental ticket now lies on how well they faired in the remaining two fixtures of the 2020/21 season.

This is the biggest fraud in football. In fact The LMC is not serous about running a simple league in Nigeria.

Then how can we grow


OK the fact of the matter.

1. Jigawa Golden stars featured a player who is ineligible to play having received 5 yellow card

2. The LMC notified jigawa Golden stars that the said player is ineligible

3. And the LMC Nigeria football rule says ...should a team featured such player 3 point will be deducted from the and the victory given to the opponent

4. A simple rule like this.... The LMC had to wait so long after Rivers united petition only to come up with a flimsy excuse

This is a very poor decision from LMC. Jigawa stars know the said player is ineligible because of the 5 yellow cards, but because they didn't get an official letter from LMC, they feigned ignorance and went ahead to field the player.

The soul of Nigeria has been corrupted and day by day it seems irredeemable. All aspect of our system is dented with crooked people. Those that are willing to effect the change are influenced by those that have sworn not to. What a country!

Now LMC has let Jigawa stars off the hook because of their own incompetence, saying they didn't send an official letter to Jigawa stars. How dumber can these guys get??... That's why Nigerian league has no integrity. One of the least respected leagues in Africa...
