Nigeria FootballOff the Pitch

NNL Chairman recommends the best management module for Nigerian clubs

In a recent statement, George Aluo, Chairman of the Nigeria National League (NNL), emphasized the need for private individuals and communities to take charge of managing football clubs in Nigeria.

Aluo stressed that government involvement hampers the growth of football and that transitioning to private ownership would lead to more efficient management.

Aluo cited successful examples like Remo Stars, which is privately owned and effectively managed without government support. He also pointed to Sporting Supreme, a club within the NNL owned by an individual, which demonstrates that private ownership can lead to well-managed clubs.

Acknowledging the challenges faced by his board, particularly financial constraints, Aluo called upon corporate organizations to support the NNL. He specifically highlighted the importance of funding for referees’ indemnity, suggesting that this support would enhance the quality of officiating and contribute to the competitiveness of the league.

Aluo expressed gratitude to Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau, Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), for the opportunity to serve and urged corporate entities to emulate GTI’s support for the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL).

In conclusion, Aluo emphasized the importance of reducing government involvement in football management and encouraged private investment to strengthen the lower leagues and make Nigerian football more attractive.
