Speaking to Trustsports yesterday, Babalola confirmed that the NPL congress which got the approval of the NFF on Thursday will hold next Thursday at Tahir Hotel in Kano.
He said during the congress, draws for the 2012/2013 season would hold and issues germane to the commencement of the new season would be thrashed out.
Babalola said even as it is faced with a lot of challenges, the NPL secretariat is working assiduously to ensure a smooth take off of the league.
“We have not chosen any kick-off date. How can the league commence before the congress is held?. We are going to hold our congress on Thursday and after that we would announce the kick off date.
