“ It has been a very fruitful first end of first round of league games in the Nationwide League One. There has not been any crisis of violence or disburbances whatsoever and we really want to thank the clubs’ offcials and the fans for maintaining law and order. We want the clubs to continue to maintain peace at the league venues.” Ogunnowo said.

The Football Admistrator added that : “ We have seen a situation whereby a team like Odic FC of Lagos lost at home and the following weekend, the same team that lost at home  won at away. That is football. A team is capable of winning anywhere if the team plays well and hopefully  we will see more of good  football in the league in the second round.”

 Ogunnowo also said that the clubs have been very cooperative with the league body and it is hoped that this synergy will continue in the second round , as he also revealed that the Nationwide League is still expecting fund from the sponsors of the league and hopefully the first phase of the fund will be given very soon.
