NPFL 2022/23: All financial obligations fulfilled to clubs, IMC says

3 min read

The Interim Management Committee (IMC) said it has fulfilled all financial obligations to the 20 clubs that participated in the 2022/23 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season as money promised the clubs were paid before the start of the just concluded season.

As at Thursday, league champions, Enyimba have been asked to provide their account details for the remittance of the ₦100 million prize money earned for lifting the title.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the IMC disbursed the sum of ₦200 million at ₦10 million each to the clubs in January after the ceremonial presentation and before the season commenced”, IMC’s Head of Operations, Davidson Owumi said in response to reports in a section of the media.

“The ₦200 million shared equally by the clubs represented a start up grant considering the strain on the clubs to commence the season in January when most states were just getting their budgets passed.

“If there is any money that hasn’t been paid, it is the ₦100 million prize money for Enyimba and they have been asked to provide banking details for the remittance”, the IMC officer explained.

The IMC said it is aware of the machinations to discredit the body by some of those who are not happy with its huge strides.

“We are focused on achieving a complete turnaround of the league and will not be distracted by the activities of those who are bent on dragging the league back from recent progress we made”, he said.

In the just concluded season, the IMC ensured that referees and other match officials were paid their indemnities before traveling for games. They enjoyed a 60 per cent increase in the indemnities and 40 percent raise in travel fares.

The IMC also ensured that they were protected in the cause of officiating matches while few instances of breach of security were swiftly dealt with.
