On Monday, a former Julius Berger player, Edema Fuludu, said that the League Management Company (LMC) should continue to improve on officiating of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
Fuludu has made this known during an interview in Lagos.
He said: “Our league keeps getting better by the day, but the truth is that we need to do more regarding officiating, last season there were series of complaints.
“Some made it to the pages of newspapers, others probably didn’t, but we should find a lasting solution to these issues.
“Our referees need to feel protected, we can’t leave them hanging when fans are acting irrationally. We need them to do their jobs without fear or favour.
“In some cases, these referees are beaten up and nothing happens at the end of the day. If I’m a referee and I know I’m safe anywhere I’m officiating I’d definitely give my best.’’
