Recall that the league was suspended on March 18 due to the coronavirus outbreak, thus sparking reactions that the LMC take a decision on the suspended season. While some have called on the league body to cancel the season, some others suggested that Plateau should be handed the 2019/20 NPFL title.
Eguma, whose side still have a chance of becoming champions, urged the LMC not to rush into taking any decision. According to the gaffer, it will be too early to start rushing and say the trophy should be handed to Plateau United because the league is not over. But the NFF and LMC decides to awards Plateau United the title as a result of the persistency of the situation, its fine.
