The Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL meeting with the Club Owners Association aimed at ratifying the proposed promotion of eight teams from Nigeria National League, NNL, to the NPFL ended in a deadlock, The SportsBay reports.

The meeting which was scheduled to start at 7pm at the Hotel Reno in Abuja began by 10:00pm Wednesday and ended 1:00am Thursday with no major conclusion.

It was however gathered that the meeting will continue later today as they seek a final solution.

It will be recalled that last week, the Nigeria National League in their Annual General Assembly meeting with the NNL club owners proposed the promotion of eight clubs to join the existing twenty NPFL teams.

According to the NNL resolution, twenty eight teams will participate in the 2018/19 NPFL season with twelve relegated to the second tier league at the end of the season.
