Crown Football club Board and management under Alhaji Noah Bello remember the former chairman of the club, chief Abraham Olayiwola Olagbemiro who died exactly 3years ago in far away New-Delhi in India after a brief illness.

The good deeds of the deceased would continue to be linger on for laying the solid foundation in Crown fc and for bringing into bear his encyclopedic knowledge in football administration in his home town. Layi as fondly called despite having silver spoon in his mouth from birth chose football as a career, played and administered the round-leather game.

Abraham Olayiwola, caught the
attention and attraction of the late Apala legend Alh Ayinla Omowura in one of his albums titled Challenge Cup 1974, the Apala maestro gave a graphic representation of Mighty jets Layi’s football artistry against Enugu

He was the team Manager of Dream team IV that brought glory to Nigeria in Atlanta ’96, Layi won Federation cup for Plateau United in the year 2000 and could not be diffused from the historical Premier League ticket of Crown fc.

The Nigeria Premier League (NPL)this season has attracted more followers not because the league is properly run but because we have people who are dedicated, determined and passionate, people who sees nothing but positive changes about the battered league, people who will risk their lives at match venues in order to ensure that NPL followers get first hand reportage of the battered league.

No doubt, the major actors of the league(Players) are in abject and consistent povert as a result of series of unpaid sign off fees, salaries and bonuses which has become a normal situation in the running of the league, but ‘WE’ will not go to sleep untill the anomalies rocking the league return to normal.

As the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) disciplinary committee and NPL board set to sit on Wednesday, 8, August, 2012, to decide on outstanding cases, and to take proper decision on Ocean Boys who have failed to honour two league matches, thus contravening Article 4.2 and Article 4.2 No.3 of NPL.

The rules governing the league must be strictly adhere to, sactions and fines must be must be meted out, Nigerians are waiting for the outcome of the meeting on Wednesday, we want justice to prevail so that our esteemed confidence in NFF disciplinary committee will not be dashed.
