Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) chief operating officer, Mallam Salisu Abubakar has thrown more light on the decision to postpone some matches of the first weekend in the new season, as he says it was meant to allow newly promoted clubs have some rest.

Everywhere in the world or do we say every league in the football world has traditional teams. They make the domestic league of a country tick. They are crowd pullers. Season in season out, they are favourites to lift the shield. They are rich in tradition and synonymous with the league. They are the face, identity and ambassadors of the league of a country. They produce some of the finest players for or in the national team. Take them away and the league becomes a glorified grassroots tournament. Take them away and the stadia become empty....Take them away and the league sponsors run away.
