The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has approved the change of name for the country’s topflight football league.

The decision to change the name was ratified at the 79th NFF Annual General Assembly (AGA) in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State on Sunday.

According to the communique released after the AGA, the approval to change the NPFL name from the Nigeria Professional Football League to the Nigeria Premier Football League was one of the decisions taken at the congress.

It will be recalled that the NFF had earlier informed the NPL board that only the NFF Congress has the power to change the name when the newly inaugurated NPL board launched a new logo and new name for the league.
