Kwara move on

The management of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club, Kwara United have accepted the verdicts of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) organising and disciplinary committee.

The NFF committee ordered a replay of the matchday 28 duel between Kwara United and Warri Wolves after the first clash in Ilorin was abandoned.

The NFF's disciplinary committee had ruled that the Kwara United/Warri Wolves encounter must be replayed in Abuja this Sunday and the Afonja Warriors are now ready to honour the duel.

Kwara United spokesman, Olayinka Owolewa revealed to that the Ilorin club will honour the tie, but frowned at the NFF's verdict claiming that the Afonja Warriors should have been given the three points and three goals as stipulated by article 4.2 (2) and 4.2 (5).

“As a law abiding club, we have accepted the NFF decision over our abandoned Week 28 Premier League match with Warri Wolves and we will honour the match in Abuja on Sunday as directed by the O&D.

“ This is injustice, but we will not put the game to disrepute,” Owolewa told

Kwara United however, called on both the LMC and the NFF to closely monitor the activities of Warri Wolves as they remain the only club with allegations of match officials being beaten in their away matches.

“It is high time something drastic be done to Warri Wolves because they are the only side causing confusion at away games this season,” Owolewa added angrily.

Meanwhile, the encounter may not hold this Sunday as Warri Wolves have appealed against the NFF decision describing the judgment as “unfair.”
