Sports Minister Dare Urges IMC To Resuscitate NPFL


The Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare, has called on the newly inaugurated Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) to resuscitate the league and bring it to its past glory.

The Minister made the call on Friday in his office in Abuja when he received the members of the Committee who were there on a visit.

Mr Dare expressed concern over the deteriorating state of the Nigeria Professional Football League which he said was once the pride of the nation.

According to him, “our professional league which used to be our pride in this country is sick today and has become a caricature of its old self which needs urgent attention,” stressing further that once a sport lacks competition, that sport is dead.


The Minster explained that football can also become a profitable business in the country, if only the league can be resuscitated.
