Deliberated on this publication and viewed it not only as malicious but a calculated attempt to destabilize football activities on the Plateau.


It also considers the perpetrators of such publication as persons ignorant of the NFF statute and that of PFA.


Consequently. The plateau football association and its statutory stakeholders after an emergency meeting resolved as follows.


1) That there was an extraordinary Congress convened at the Miango Rest Home on the 2nd June 2019 according to the FIFA and NFF statute where NFF the football regulatory body sent in Representatives.


2) The stakeholders viewed with great concern the activities of the media officer of plateau united FC Mr.  Albert Dakup who brought this unwarranted publication to the public domain as uncalled for considering the fact that he is the deputy chairman of Bokkos Local FA. It then translates to literally mean he is a beneficiary and product of the said manipulated election.


3) That there was a unanimous resolution and adaption of the current board led by Sunday Samson Longbap owing to current football development and progresses witnessed in the state and coupled with the lingering court case extended for four (4) years tenure to the board. This resolution is powered NFF statute and was duly endorsed by the representatives of the NFF present.
