Lobi Stars manager Gbenga Ogunbote has made a bold assertion that nothing can be done should the 2019/20 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season be called off because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Football leagues across the globe have been put on hold as a result of the viral outbreak which is affecting more than a million people globally.
Nigeria is one of the worst-hit countries in West Africa with more than 250 confirmed cases.
The Pride of Benue are currently third on the log after 25 games with an outstanding game still to play and this could mean another shot at genuinely winning the title slipping out of their grasp again.
“The other time it happened [league inconclusive] is completely different from the scenario we are facing now,” Ogunbote told Goal.
“This is a global affair and it is difficult for a nation to get up and say this is how we are going to do it. We have to study the trend of events.
“If every country decides to declare the season null and void, there is nothing we can do. The administrators here will have to follow suit. It’s a difficult one but we just have to look at events as they unfold and until then, decisions will be difficult to take.”
