LMC reinstates Giwa FC after court order



In compliance to a court order, the League Management Company has reinstated Giwa FC to the Nigeria Professional Football League.
According to a statement by the LMC and signed by chairman Shehu Dikko, Giwa, who were expelled from the league after they failed to honour a total of three matches, have been restored to the league and their players could no longer feature for the clubs they were sent out on loan to after their expulsion.
The statement read in part: “… as a law abiding corporate entity, LMC has taken immediate steps to effect compliance with the directives of the Court, as contained in the Order, pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice. To this end, kindly be advised that:
“Giwa FC has been restored to the NPFL table, while further processes are being activated to reschedule the matches concerning the club, in accordance with the NPFL Framework and Rules, 2015/2016 season;
“No club shall henceforth feature any player whose registration it acquired on the basis of the expulsion of Giwa FC, as all such registrations are withdrawn.”
