The Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) will introduce random testing of players for drugs as part of efforts to check use of banned substances in the championship.
NPFL Chairman, Hon Gbenga Elegbeleye has said they are working on purchasing testing kits to conduct the exercise randomly for all players
“We are committed to join the NFF, CAF, FIFA and the global campaign for eradication of illicit substance use in sports and this will commence soon with random tests of our players.
“We are poised to arrest and stamp out illicit drugs use in the league where it exists and we plan to collaborate with relevant government agencies to launch an enlightenment campaign which will include displays on our Match Day stadium boards and media channels,” Hon Gbenga told the media this Wednesday.
Over the years, some players of the championship have displayed signs of drugs related abnormalities, which the testing is certain to eradicate.
