Rivers United’s coach Stanley Eguma has responded to calls for the NPFL to be canceled while making Plateau United the champions.
Plateau leads the division with 49 points while Rivers United sit closely behind in second position with 45 points.
“It will be too early to start rushing and say the trophy should be handed to Plateau United because the league is not over,” Eguma said to Brila.
“I will not want them to go ahead and hand over the trophy to Plateau United, but if the Nigeria Football Federation, in conjunction with the LMC, decide to do that, no problem.”
Eguma pointed out how the core issue is actually the Covid-19 pandemic - and therefore should simply be waited for until it runs its course.
“I think we should allow this problem (coronavirus) to go before we move on. If they (Plateau) are named champions and the problem is still there, it does not make it right. The most important thing is to allow this transition period to pass by,” he added.
