IMC Designates Remo vs Insurance as Fixture of Interest


By Sedara Philip

One of the biggest fixtures of the 2022/23 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) season holds this weekend in the picturesque city of Ikenne, birth place of one of Nigeria’s Political Sage, Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Ikenne is also home to Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria’s current Vice President.

In one of the Group A match-ups this weekend, is the blockbuster game between hosts and NPFL model side, Remo Stars and legacy side, Bendel Insurance, the only team yet to taste defeat this season.

The appetising MatchDay 14 tie is one that the Interim Management Committee (IMC) is pulling all stops to ensure it goes without hitches and live up to its billing as a clash of top dogs.

IMC Head of Operations, Davidson Owumi has already described the tie as “a meeting of two model teams of the NPFL in terms of their management approach and performance”.

He has therefore admonished all actors in the fixture to ensure that the game produces a top rated performance that followers of the NPFL will be proud of.

“We expect both clubs, their players, Officials and Supporters of the clubs including the Match Officials to comport themselves and be true ambassadors of NPFL”.

Owumi assured both teams and all football fans expected at the Remo Stars Stadium that the IMC is putting all required logistics in place for an excellent experience on the day.

“We consider this match on Sunday as premium advertisement for the NPFL given the quality of the two sides.

“Remo Stars have clearly been a model in private ownership of a professional football club in Nigeria and we are enthused by what they have on ground.

“Bendel Insurance on the other hand has also demonstrated that a government funded club can be innovative and professional in management hence we are expecting top notch delivery from all especially the Supporters of both clubs and most importantly, the Match Officials”, remarked the IMC Officer.

Insurance sit atop Group A after 13 matches while Remo Stars are in contention for one of the three playoff places.
