NPFL24: Enyimba To Appeal NPFL Ruling, Seeks Upturning Of Two Points Deduction Verdict


May 3, 2024

Nigerian Premier football league (NPFL) Champions, Enyimba international of Aba have lodged an appeal against the recent ruling by the NPFL, which resulted in a deduction of two points, platinumnewsng.com is reporting.

Exclusivenews.com.ng reported earlier that an official of the club in an exclusive interview with them on Thursday evening stated that the people’s elephant were shocked to the marrow being ducked two points by NPFL in the aftermath of the ugly incident that overshadowed their Match Day 24 clash against Doma United in Aba.

The official who spoke in a condition of anonymity with the news source stated that the club were left bewildered by the ‘inexplicable’ two points deduction after they had earlier been fined N7m and also playing three home games behind closed doors.

According to him, “It appears some people have programmed a particular club to win the NPFL title this season”.

“And perhaps deny us, Enyimba, the opportunity to win the trophy, our possible 10th NPFL trophy.

“If not, how come they have deducted two points from out total points? We can’t fold our hands and allow this to happen. We are appealing against this action by the NPFL.

“We’re dispatching our appeal straight away. This is a brazen injustice and we are not happy about it so we are going to appeal against it”.

Rangers currently lead the NPFL standings with 57 points, while Enyimba holds the second spot with 55 points. However, due to the two-point deduction, Enyimba now has 53 points, putting them four points behind Rangers, the Coal City Flying Antelopes.
