The former Kwara State Governor and proprietor of NPL side ABS FC has thrown his weight behind the decision of the Sports Minister, Bolaji Abdullahi to indefinitely postpone the commencement of the 2012/13 Nigeria Premier League season pending the resolution of issues relating to title sponsorship, television rights and other lingering matters.
The current serving Senator lauded the decision and opined that the Minister's intervention would have a long term progressive effect on Nigerian football.
In his words: "The decision to put the League on hold by the Minister until all contentious issues are resolved is the best thing that has happened to our football in recent time.
"As a stakeholder, I can tell Nigerians that despite increase in funding, there has been no corresponding improvement in the league.
"What we have now is a badly run League where the title goes to the highest bidder. It is a league where the administrators are feeding fat while the players and clubs suffer in the midst of plenty."
He further the blamed mal-administration of the League for the stagnation of its development. "Most of the people managing our league do not have what it takes to run football today; the standard of managers and administrators of our league is very low."
