NFF Appoints Dead Referee To Officiate NPFL Match!

Like seriously? Things like this only happen in special countries like Nigeria.

The Chris Giwa-led group of the football house assigned the late referee Wale Akinsanya, who
passed away during a Nigeria Referees Association fitness test on January 22, 2016, for the Week 13 fixture this weekend.

In a statement sent to the League Management Company (LMC), signed by Yahaya Adama, the deceased referee was appointed to handle the clash between Warri Wolves and Giwa FC.

This bizarre incident may not be the last to emanate from the Glass House as there seems to be no end in sight to the ongoing leadership tussle in Nigerian football as the Giwa faction this week rejected the peace move by Sports Minister Solomon Dalung.
