“Teams like Kwara United, 3SC and Rangers who had a rough patch in the early weeks have also bounced back to reckoning, while Pillars is also gradually bouncing back to reckoning,” the statement said.

It added, “All these indicate that more intense competition should be expected when the league resumes.”

The total ICT solutions provider also commended managements of the clubs for motivating the players and technical crews towards achieving greater results. “We have noticed this positive trend which we believe will help the league grow exponentially ,” the statement further said while also commending the League Management Company for its progressive measures aimed at uplifting the league.

“We also wish to commend the fans that trooped to the various stadia to watch the teams and the peaceful manner in which they have conducted themselves at the venues and we encourage them to continue with this trend when the league resumes in a forthnight,” the statement concluded.
