The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have sent a reminder to Nigeria premier league side Plateau United that their newly appointed coach Victor Wikadson has been banned for life after he was involved in some scandalous matches three years ago.
Plateau United appointed Wikadson in place of sacked Zakary Baraje.
The NFF have fired a reminder to the Plateau State Football Association that the ban placed on some football players and officials following couple of scandalous results in the 2013 play-Off matches of the Nigeria Nationwide League, in Bauchi Centre, are still in force.
In results that attracted global alarm and condemnation, Plateau United Feeders, Akurba United FC of Lafia, Police Machine FC of Yola and Bubayero FC of Gombe were involved in unimaginable scorelines of 76-0 and 89-0, and the Nigeria Football Federation set up a panel that recommended that players, team officials and match officials involved in the shameful events be banned for life from the game.
The letter signed by NFF general secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, on Tuesday instructed the Plateau State Football Association to ensure that the ban is enforced in its domain.
The reminder became necessary in view of the move by NPFL side, Plateau United on Monday to appoint Victor Wikadson as new head coach.
