    They should have held on to avoid losing top position. Asec and Diables can win and share 10 points now. CS this might be a bit dicey I think they’re not through yet.

      Just a quick correction Rivers are really through because Diables have only 5points after 5 games on 3rd position and will only end with 8 points even with a win at their last game compared to Rivers of 10points at least. Congratulations this is a pleasant news. And why didn’t NFF list the league highest goal scorer who plays for Bendel Insurance as an home based selection for SE or U23. Craze dey worry NFF and Salisu o. What at all is their problems @TheNFF???

      their problem is that the highest goal scorer has not signed an agreement for them to be his agent or he has not stump up the money to pay his way through
