The Federal Government today scrapped the League Management Company managing the Nigeria Professional Football League.

To this end, the federal government also ordered the Nigeria Football Federation to withdraw the LMC license and set up an Interim Management Committee to oversee the league.
The directive was contained in a press statement issued on Friday by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ismaila Abubakar.
According to the federal government, the decision became imperative after a competent court of jurisdiction declared the League Management Company an illegal body.
