Filed in Sports by on November 11, 2017

Nigeria Referees Association’s ( NRA ) fitness test for all categories of referees and assessors earlier scheduled for Nov.16 has been postponed indefinitely by the Nigeria Football Federation( NFF ).

Sani Zubairu, Nigeria Football Federation’s ( NFF ) Head of Referees Unit, said that the decision was based on conflicting medical reports.

Zubairu said that the central medical team of NFF were not satisfied with some alterations on medical reports of some of the referees.

‘’The central medical team discovered some alterations on the medical reports of some of the referees from various states.

‘’So, we decided to postpone the test indefinitely to enable persons affected to come up with acceptable reports without alterations,’’ he said.

The NFF’s Head of Referees Unit, however, said that his office would meet with the committee on Nov. 15 to address the issue.

NRA had scheduled Nov.16 as date for commencement of pre-league season fitness test for all categories of its members.
