Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Amaju Pinnick, has began a move to sustain and improve the organisation of the various leagues in the country.

Pinnick made this known while presideing over the federation’s Executive Board meeting on Monday.

The move is amied at charting a more robust plan for the Niggeria Professional Football League, Nigeria National League, Nigeria Women Football League and the Nigeria Nationwide League One.

Disclosing his excitement with the broadcast and quality of production of Nigeria Professional Football League matches on the NPFL.TV since the commencement of the new season, Pinnick added that the federation was determined to ensure that nothing derails the gains already achieved.

“We are all impressed with the matches being televised on television and the special app (NPFL.TV)”.

“I have enjoyed the quality of production which compares to the very best anywhere in the world. However, it’s time to look critically at certain niggling factors and ensure we tackle them decisively in order not to erode the gains we have been able to make”.

“We must keep at what we are doing, maintain the standard and even strive for improvement where possible, and we can be sure that we will reap the gains in the coming seasons,” said Pinnick.

The NFF chief also assured that the Federation will do everything within its capacity to ensure that standard of officiating continues to improve, while safety, security and medical issues are given the utmost attention and seriousness.

There was a consensus at the meeting on the sustainability of good officiating and broadcast of the matches which will help in addressing some of the problems associated with the domestic game in previous years.

Meanwhile, Pinnick issued a warning to officials of the various leagues to shun acts capable of putting the domestic game in bad light or disrepute.

Present at the meeting were Dr Emmanuel Ikpeme (Deputy General Secretary); Mallam Salihu Abubakar (Chief Operating Officer, LMC); Mr Ademola Olajire (Director of Communications); Ms Ruth David (Ag. Director of Competitions); Dr Ayo Abdulrahaman (Head of National Competitions); Mr Emmanuel Adesanya (COO, NNL); Ms Modupe Shabi (COO, NWFL) and Mr Shola Ogunnowo (COO, NLO
