Joel Ajayi

Kwara United Football Club Head Coach, Abdullahi Biffo has called for cooperation among the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL)’s stakeholders to bring about growth and development to the league.

He made this appeal on Monday when he was a guest in the FCT Football Update Online platform, Abuja.


When asked about his take on the Nigerian league and if the NPFL was professional enough, Coach Biffo said: “Everybody has to support the authority—the League Management Company (LMC) and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to make sure at least in the game, we will regain our lost glory which we had before. Because there was a time, our league rank was the best in Africa. So, we are looking forward to being there again.


“I think we are moving forward. Every year, the Nigerian league is being improved. If not for the COVID-19 which stopped us at almost the end of the season. You will agree with me that for the past three years now, we’ve been improving.


“The first major problem we faced in coaching was because in the past,


players believed the best result then was a draw, even if they had the chance to win the game. But for the past three years now, I think it has been completely out of our league, so I think it’s a plus for the coaches and for the team.


“Now, we really know which team is playing good football. Not every home team must win like it used to be in the past. I think in that area, the league is coming up and we’re going to be there.”

Re:NYSC Shuns Applications By Southern Medical Corps Members Who “Desperately” Want To Redeploy From North Due To Insecurity



The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to a story with the above caption, making the rounds on social media. The write-up is a misrepresentation of facts.

In a statement issued by the NYSC’s Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations Emeka Mgbemena on Sunday in Abuja said the report is misrepresentation of facts.

According to the statement, in accordance with the Relocation Policy of the Scheme, the exercise is carried out based on two grounds, namely; Marital and Health grounds.

Relocation on the ground of marriage is applicable only to female Corps Members. On the ground of health, the Corps Member’s medical history must be presented, with a written application.

It is imperative to state that in NYSC, all lives matter, just like the Director-General has emphasised on so many fora. The safety and well-being of Corps Members and members of staff remains of paramount importance to the Corps.

However, Corps Members at all times must also be security conscious and never treat their safety with levity, by unduly putting themselves in harm’s way through risky behaviours.

Rest assured, the Scheme in all matters on deployment of Corps Members, relies strictly on the advisories from the security agencies.

It is therefore advisable for clarifications to be sought from the Scheme on issues pertaining to its operations, to avoid the error of inaccurate reportage, or outright spread of falsehood and misinformation.
