NPFL Bans Kano Pillars From Signing New Players


The Nigeria Premier Football League board has banned Kano Pillars from signing new players.

The NPFL took the decision following the Sai Masu Gida’s failure to fulfill their contractual obligations to former goalkeeper Bassey Akpan.

It would be recalled that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) ordered Kano Pillars to pay the outstanding N11.8m owed Bassey within 21 days in June 2023.

The club has yet to comply with NFF’s directive.

The NPFL Chief Operating Officer, Davidson Owumi announced that the ban will not be lifted until both parties reached a compromise.

Abdu Maikaba’s side secured promotion to the NPFL last season after spending one year in the Nigeria National League (NNL).

The former NPFL champions will take on Sunshine Stars in their opening fixture of the 2023/24 season on Saturday.
