Senator Shehu sani proposed to the Federal Government to further promote our Nigerian professional football league. The former senator representing the Kaduna central in the 8th Parliament expressed regret that Nigerians did not show interest in the country’s football league.
He regretted that the Nigerians did not discuss the match between Kano Pillar and Einba. He said Kano and Abias weren’t interested in that game, but if it were a Premier League or a European soccer game, countless Nigerians would be interested. The former senator suggested banning the broadcast of foreign soccer matches so that Nigerians can start watching local teams.
Yesterday,Kano Pillars defeated Eyimba FC by 2:1 at the Ahmadu Bello stadium kaduna;neither the people of Kano nor those of Abia showed any interest in the match. If it were English or European Football matches,the madness could have been immeasurable. What about banning the broadcast of foreign football matches so that we can all be patriots and watch our local teams”, Shehu Sani said.
