NFF Frees Giwa FC Players To Join Other NPFL Clubs
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has given provisional clearance to all players of erstwhile NPFL club, Giwa FC of Jos to join other clubs in the league.
In a letter to the Chairman of League Management Company, signed by NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi on Monday, the NFF wrote: “Based on the LMC’s expulsion of the club from the Premier League and the NFF ratification of the same measure and with special reference to article 14 & 23 of the FIFA regulations on the status and transfer of players.
All players of Giwa FC as pronounced by the LMC and the NFF Disciplinary Committee are free to provisionally register for any club of their choice till the end of the 2015/2016 football season.
“Note also that, all the players are to return to the management of Giwa FC after the last match of the 2015/2016 League Season.” Giwa FC was expelled from the NPFL following their refusal to honour matches in the Ilorin centre after the club was banished out of their Jos-based over crowd trouble in the current season.
