Chairman of Nigeria National League ( NNL) , Mr. George Aluo has expressed satisfaction with the performance of teams and match officials at the second stanza of the league which kicked off last Friday; saying that the results posted so far is an indication that the league is progressing.

The second stanza of the league kicked off in Adamawa and Kebbi respectively on Friday followed by other conferences on Saturday and Aluo believes the fair officiating witnessed so far which resulted in teams getting results on the road is an indication that the league board under his watch is getting it right.

“I want to say that I’m happy with what is happening in the NNL since the second stanza commenced on Friday. Report reaching me indicates that the referees are doing a good job and the fact that Sporting Supreme recorded an away win in Adamawa and the  draw  in Awka by Gateway show that it’s no longer business as usual and we’ll continue improving the league,” he said.

Aluo charged the referees to always be on top of their game warning  that the board will not hesitate to sanction any match official that is found wanting just as he appealed to fans not to do anything that will bring the game to  disrepute.

“I want to advise the referees to be on the same page with the NNL board and handle the whistle without fear or favour so that the successes we’ve recorded since the first stanza will be sustained. It’s equally important I advise the fans to exercise patience with the league board and avoid any act capable of bringing the game to disrepute.”

Aluo also commended the President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau for his support to his board since they assumed office, promising him that they will achieve the mandate given to them to make the second tier league the best of its kind in Africa.
