The League Management Company says there are plans to commence random drug tests for players in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
The LMC on Wednesday suspended the NPFL indefinitely, due to coronavirus, but the drugs test could be implemented on resumption.
Chairman of the LMC, Shehu Dikko, in a chat with our correspondent, said the league body intended to strengthen its anti-doping policies through the move.
According to him, he said they have been discussing about (anti-doping), the rules and regulations are very clear concerning outlawed drugs. There are some players we have had to deal with at the club level without coming public, but now, we are going to intensify checks.
He added saying, doctors will be sent to clubs to test all players and once in a while players will be picked randomly on match venues for test.
Drugs problem is not just NPFL problem, it is the society’s problem and anyone earning what the players are earning can go into drugs. So, we will keep educating them to desist from it,” he added.
