  1. As much as NNL is not against any decision by the NFF, the NNL Cub Owners Association should always be carried along whenever NFF is taking decisions that has to do with NNL especial the kind of the decision to end all leagues abruptly;
  2. Whatever that is done to NPFL as regards the 2019/20 season should be replicated in the NNL especially the issue of Promotion and Relegation;
  3. All Club Owners should always endeavour to attend meetings whenever and wherever such is called as whatever decisions taking at such meetings is binding on all members;
    3 A functional NNL Board should be put in place asap by NFF and at least 3 Club Owners of NNL should be considered as members;
  4. The league should be RE- BRANDED to give the league a new face. Partners and Sponsors should be sought without further delay as this is part of what put the league on hold in the first instance;
  5. The Association should work with the League Board to ensure early commencement of the new season as well as determine a standard calendar for the season;
  6. No registration fee should be charged for the new season; should the 2019/2020 be aborted.
  7. The problem associated with (poor) officiating should be critically looked into as this is one of the reason
    the current season was put on hold;
  8. NFF should consider Clubs in NNL as on the beneficiaries of pallatives from FIFA and CAF. Most especially the Private Club Owners;
  9. A functional and effective media outfit should be put in place to attract investors into the league.
  10. A voting process will hold by Tuesday 29th June when the house could not agree on whether there should be promotion from NNL to NPFL in the 2020/2021 football season. (The voting exercise was conducted on the NNL platform as scheduled on Tuesday 30th June) and at the end of the exercise, 12 teams voted in support of Promotion while 13 teams voted against Prototion).
  11. With the result of the voting, the Club Owners Association of NNL has resolved that there should be NO Promotion and NO relegation should the NFF resolve to abort the 2019/2020 Ntional League.
