THE League Management Company (LMC) has denied a recent online media report which quoted its Chairman, Nduka Irabor, as saying that Club Owners are not fit to run the League, adding that it wishes to categorically re-affirm that it holds Club Owners of the Glo Premier League in high esteem and will not make private or public statements that will suggest otherwise.
A statement from the Office of the LMC Chairman, said the clarification became necessary as its attention has been drawn to a report, which first appeared in an online media and subsequently published in a conventional print media purporting to be an interview granted by Irabor.
“It is not the style of the LMC Chairman to grant interviews and several reporters can attest to the fact that he had demurred from attending to interviews that are of a personal nature but prefers to speak to the media as a group, especially after official programmes.
“The LMC Chairman did not grant the said interview and would never have made the statements attributed to him”, the LMC insisted in the statement.
Continuing, it said: “We are aware that some fifth columnists are at work to disrupt the peaceful and fruitful relationship between the Club Owners and the LMC, which has yielded huge public and corporate goodwill for the League. Those who are not comfortable that the League is going in a direction that is eliminating profiteers are working very hard to frustrate the new direction.”
