Jedda Fc of Saudi Arabia and former Plateau United goal keeper, Okiemute Odah has pleaded with the Tijani Babaginda led executive of the National Association Nigeria Professional Footballers, NANPF to channel all their efforts towards delivering players of the Nigeria Professional league from the shackles of the greedy Nigeria club owners who have enslaved them.

Okiemute who spoke with said that club owners have so much impoverished the Nigeria league players to the extent that only help from the players Association can deliver them and make the Nigeria league better.

“Clubs chairmen will lodge at a very comfortable hotel. Players will be lodged at a very low cost hotel wherecommercial sex workers do have their trade and you see players strolling past prostitutes at the hotel lobby or corridors. “Players will be lodged where they will be distracted with wandering eyes looking at prostitutes at the vicinity of the hotel where they lodged and these clubs chairmen will expect Nigeria league to flourish with good football in a game.

“Even when a player leaves a club amicably for peace to reign, despite the money being owed him. By the time the money is eventually released and paid to
these clubs by states government funding the clubs in Nigeria league, these clubs chairmen will not pay players that had already left the club. If the players demand for their own financial entitlements, they will be told that the money released from government only
captured the players that are presently at the club.

“This is the reason you see many players languishing in poverty in Nigeria league ,while the clubs chairmen are feeding fat, living in affluence. Nigeria league is a
league of traders where players are the ATM cards of these clubs chairmen,” he further said.

“It is a big shame to even think that the Nigeria league is yet to start. Your league is your pride. It is not every Nigerian player that wants to play abroad if the league
is well managed. Some Nigerian players abroad may even come back to play in the Nigeria league if it is well structured with good standard.
