Referee Chief Charges Referees to uphold the tenants of the game at all times. Match Appointment for NPFL Sunday 8th Dec. 2019.

 

Poor knowledge of the rules of the competition may not be accepted as excuses for any referee to fail in the discharge of duties expected of him or her in any organised match, says President of the Nigeria Referees Association, NRA, Otunba Tade Azeez.

Otunba Tade Azeez who advised the referees to be conversant with the three cardinal rules to respect at match venues; Laws of the Game, NRA Code of Conduct and Competition Rules, further added that these guidelines remain a sine qua non for referees at all times.

The NRA President reminded those on duty this weekend that the NFF Referees Committee and the NRA are strongly against “below standard” performances and warned of the consequences waiting for offenders. He wished all referees journey mercies and best of luck in their matches.

A traditional ruler and Zonal Coordinator of South West Zone of the NRA, a retired FIFA Referee, Oba James Odeniran, the Alakinyele of Akinyele and Environs in Oyo State, will be the Assessor for the Kano Pillars vs Delta Force match to be handled by one of the latest discoveries that is perfect on the centre, Yomi Olabiyi of the Lagos State council. Aikor Shagba and Chinonso Eze of Benue and Enugu respectively, will run the lines.

In Katsina where an Army officer and the Deputy Secretary General of the NRA, Col Nicholas Achukasim will also be on the stands to observe proceedings as the Referees Assessor, Plateau State based Taminu Mathew takes charge of the whistle for while the duo of Edo’s Gimba Isa and Anakwe Arinze of Imo handle the flags for the home side game against MFM.

FIFA badged Joe Ogabor, assisted on the lines by Chukwuemeka Ihenacho and Lawrence Igbinovia will control the officiating as Nassarawa visit Akure for the Sunshine home game.
