The NPFL so far…
The NPFL has reached Match day 25, with Kano Pillars leading the table with forty-eight points, two ahead of the second place Akwa United with forty-six points.
According to reports by Akwa Ibom Sports, Adamawa United is the team with the highest defeats in all the twenty teams, managing only three wins in twenty five games.
The completion of twenty-five rounds of matches according to the NPFL stats and Match Report given by the Referees compelled the numbers.
This thus, so far gives the compelling reason to pat the LMC, Referees, all twenty clubs and their supporters as well as all other related stakeholders on the back for doing a great job.
