    I dont understand what this report means by “…The two clubs qualified from the Northern Conference of the Nigeria National League (NNL)…..”

    If promotion to the NPFL now based on region….??

    Where teams relegated based on region……???

    How do we even organize our own football in Nigeria sef…?? Teams earn promotions on the basis of regional affiliation or what…?? Hia…!!!

    It is truly baffling…you wonder why Nigerian football is not developing. Which one is regional promotion again. Wonders shall never cease……

    They qualified from the  super 8 playoffs, I don’t believe there’s regional league in Nigeria because that is why we have the regional tournaments that was lately introduced for fun sake and nothing more. I’m rooting for the south teams or Lagos representative or maybe Remo stars lol!!!
