NPFL: Enugu Rangers Dissolve Management Board
The board was dissolved by Enugu State governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi after a poor run in the concluded league season.
Rangers, 2016 NPFL title winners, could not defend their place as they struggled to finish 13th at the end of the 2017 season.
Ugwuanyi terminated appointment of all contract staff in the club, beginning from chairman and former Super Eagles coach, Christian Chukwu.
The governor ordered returning of all staff seconded to Rangers to their parent establishment.
“The appointment of the club physician is hereby terminated with immediate effect and all corporation/club property in his custody should be returned forthwith.
“The Rangers Management Corporation law will be amended to align it with the said road map and must specifically enthrone the following: ‘Robust governance structure with clear reporting lines in keeping with international best practices;
“A new Board and Management of Rangers Management Corporation will be constituted with clear and complementary roles for delivery of the strategic goals of the football club as would be enshrined in the proposed amendment in Rangers Management Corporation law;
“The new Rangers Board and Management must hunt and recruit good players directly without any intervening football club. Rangers players must henceforth, be wholly owned by Rangers FC;
“The new Board and Management will identify and engage a competent technical crew,” the governor said.
He added that a period of six weeks has been given to attain the new objectives.
