LMC Chief Shehu Dikko says the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) can be compared to an oil well with immense potentials of yielding enormous financial benefits to investors, clubs, and stakeholders.
In a recent interview with Journalists in Abuja, Dikko, who is also the second vice president of the Nigeria Football Federation, said the league organizers are working hard to ensure more investments come to the NPFL.
“As we have it, everybody has seen this thing (the new deal ) has just come in, but it doesn’t happen overnight,” he said.
“The work was underground for quite some time. That’s why we call it groundbreaking because these are people that are established globally, and they come in and say ‘look, there’s gold in this Nigerian football’.
“It’s like an oil well. You could get an oil bloc certificate but you only see land. The oil beneath. You need to go and find huge investment and huge technical capacity to be able to dig that oil well and go to the right level, then, you will be able to extract the oil.”
