He said the new date would enable the participating clubs to fulfill their necessary obligations before the commencement of the competition.
“The league kick-off date has now being adjusted. So, we expect that the various clubs will fulfill all necessary obligations.
“As at this point, less than 60 per cent of the clubs have registered for the season which ought to have started this weekend,’’ Inyama said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the league season was earlier billed to kick off in March, but was later moved to April 18 because of the general elections.
The failure of many of the clubs participating in the competition to complete their registration for the new season later brought about the need to shift the kick-off date.
Meanwhile, the NNL Congress also made the draw for the season’s competition, with the fixtures drawn for matches in the two 16-club groups.(NAN)
