Capital City Doves of Abuja and Tokas Queens of Lagos have been kicked out of the Nigeria Women Premier League for failing to honour three matches in the ongoing 2015/2016 season.
In the same vein, State House Queens have been expelled from the pro league, which is the second tier of women league football in the country.
According to the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Women Football League, Ayo Abdulrahaman, the Ad-hoc Committee governing the NWFL has already intimated this decision to the affected clubs.
In the letter sent to the Nigeria Football Federation and addressed to the NFF General Secretary, Abdulrahaman wrote: “I have the directive of the Ad-hoc Committee Chairman of the league to inform the Federation of some league clubs that have lost their slots due to failure to honour three (3) matches in the current season, and as supported by article 4.2 paragraphs 1 and 5 of the 2015/2016 Nigeria Women Football League rules, they are out of the league.”
Martins White Doves of Edo were the first to incur the wrath of the league body for breaching the rules. They were thrown out of the premier league prior to the start of the second stanza of the ongoing season as confirmed to LadiesMarch by Ayo Abdulrahaman.
