The Nigeria Women Football League board has yet again been left red-faced after another team claims notice of non-registration is false throwing the NWFL into further embarrassment over administrative oversights.
Newly promoted Dream Stars have debunked the NWFL’s claim that it defaulted in its registration for the new season, becoming the second team to fire back at the league body.
In an official statement released by the club it debunked the NWFL’s position and outlined its registration process for the 2018/19 season.
The statement reads:
Our attention has been drawn to a story on social media that the club is yet to pay for league registration which prompted postponement of the league kick off by a week.”
We have no financial obligations to the league board with regards to the coming season 2018/2019.
As at Thursday, 11th July, 2019 we have scheduled the payment of sixty thousand naira (60,000) the stipulated fee for caution to the board account and same was communicated to the COO.
This was after failed efforts due to network challenges since Monday, 8th July while our Chairman was at the league office in Abuja.
Dream Stars’ Secretary, Mrs Oladoja Oluwatoyin, in the letter confirmed payment as a signatory to the club’s account:
I am a signatory to our account, I had received the deduction notification as at 11:53:19am. It was a surprise to contact our Bank this morning and it was confirmed that the money was not in our account but in the league’s.
We have instructed our bank to issue a memo to Access bank to either reimburse our purse or settle scores with their customer.
The report in circulation is derogatory and we demand an apology for an attempt to soil the image of our club.
We use this medium to calm our teaming fans, urge for continued support and sportsmanship.
