3SC: Appointment of sole administrator violates NFF regulations – LMC tells Makinde
The League Management Company (LMC), has told Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State that appointment of a sole administrator to run the affairs of Shooting Starts Sports Club also known as 3SC, is a violation to the NFF Club Licensing regulations. LMC made this disclosure via a letter addressed to the club management. Our correspondent recalls that Makinde had a few days ago appointed a former Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Babatunde Olaniyan as sole administrator for the club. DAILY POST gathered that Olaniyan served as deputy speaker in the state between 2011 and 2015. DAILY POST reports that the club is one of the clubs own by Oyo State Government. LMC has, however, condemned the appointment. LMC noted that the appointment was at variance with the provisions of Article 12 of the NFF Club Licensing Regulations. It explained that the appointment runs foul of the contemplation of Rule A6 of the Framework and Rules of the Nigeria Professional Football League. LMC in the letter obtained by DAILY POST on Tuesday, said appointment is invalid. It added that the appointment will not be acknowledged. LMC advised that the appointment be reviewed. It explained that the appointment be reviewed in order to ensure compliance with the provisions of extant football regulations. “It has come to our attention that a Sole Administrator has been appointed to manage the affairs of the club. This infers that ALL residual powers and responsibilities relating to the administration of the club will be vested in a single individual, instead of a constituted board of directors or group of administrators. “Be informed that this appointment is at variance with the provisions of Article 12 of the NFF Club Licensing Regulations, and runs afoul of the contemplation of Rule A6 of the Framework and Rules of the Nigeria Professional Football League. “Consequent to the above, the purported appointment is invalid and will not be acknowledged by the League Management Company (LMC). “It is, therefore, advised that this appointment be reviewed to ensure compliance with the provisions of extant football regulations”.
