FC Yarmalight president Mallam Farouk Yarma has debunked news circulating on the social media that the organsiers of the proposed Nigeria Private Investor Football League has approached him to team-up with the new league.
The first pioneer chairman of Gombe Sports Commission made this known to Felele247.com.ng in Gombe “My attention has been drawn to a write up going round in the social media on the issue of floating a private Club league and of which my name and my club FC Yarmalight were mentioned”.
“For the avoidance of doubt no one had formally contacted me on the subject and I have not attended any meeting where such idea was muted”.
“As a Football stakeholder in Nigeria and one of the few private Football club Owners, I am in the forefront of advocating for the good of the privately owned clubs viz-a-viz any support or idea to make it a worthwhile investment in this part of the world”.
However I am a very strong member of the Nigeria Football family who participate and associate with ‘Association Football ‘ as propelled by FIFA, CAF, WAFU,NFF and Gombe state Football Association.
I am proud to say that any form of Football establishment must follow the due process of aligning with the already established Football structure as enshrined in Football rules , statutes and extant laws.
I assure my fellow private Football club Owners of my support in whatever plan to develop Football inline with the Nigeria Football Federation approval as the custodian of Football in Nigeria.
Over the past week some private clubs have indicated to form another apart from recognized Nigeria league
