“Football is governed by rules and rules are meant to be obeyed,we have to start right. This decision has become necessary and it is a lingering case ,a sort of carry over and because of the importance we attach to this league ,we are compelled to do this.
“We always have to ensure clubs in the NNL are ready to run because they move to the Premier League from us, it beholves on us to direct them well”
