Giwa FC have made a formal request to have their ejection from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) re-examined.

The Jos club in a letter to the League Management Company (LMC), which oversees the running of the Nigeria top-flight, rejected the punishment meted out to them and asked that their matter "be dealth with by a commission."

“The above subject matter refers. We are in receipt of your letter of 20th May, 2016 on the above subject matter. We hereby notify you that we do not accept any of the sanctions imposed on our club and further add that we elect to be dealt with by a commission," Giwa FC wrote in a letter dated May 21, 2016 to the LMC.

Already the standings on the official website of the NPFL now reflects the cancellation of all games played by Giwa FC this season following their expulsion last Friday.

Giwa FC were thrown out of the country's top division for failure missing three cumulative matches which flouts Rule B13.28 of the NPFL Framework and Rules for the season.

The rule states: “If a club fails to honour three matches cumulatively within the league season without an acceptable reason to the LMC such a club shall be expelled from the league and its matches played and unplayed shall be cancelled."

No date has been announced to hear the appeal of Giwa FC though the LMC stated that the club "will now appear before the relevant authority in the coming days to hear their appeal." (supersports.com)
