NPFL: Why LMC Should Not Crown Plateau United As Champions

The League Management Company (LMC) is the body that is saddle with the administrative responsibilities of organizing the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic that have ravage the world the current NPFL season is been suspended indefinitely like the other top leagues in the world, the likes of The EPL in England, Laliga in Spain, Serie A in Italy, Ligue 1 in France etc.

Before the NPFL was suspended indefinitely, the teams have played 25 matches except Enyimba who was competing in the CAF Confederation Cup who have played only 20 matches, Rangers Fc, Kano Pillars, Kastina United and Worri Wolves have all Played 24 matches each and Dakada Fc who have played one match than any other team in the league (i.e 26 matches). 

This is how the league table looks like after matchday 25.

From the table you see that Plateau United is toping with 49 pts, followed by Rivers United with 45 pts, now if the LMC crown Plateau United as the champions because of the Coronavirus pandemic what happened to Enyimba who have played only 20 matches? What of Nasarawa United, Jigawa Golden Stars, Kwara United and Adamawa United that are swimming in the relegation waters? Will they be relegated? Rivers United can win the league if the season is completed.

My opinion is this, the LMC should not crown Plateau United because other top leagues in Europe, no team have been crown champions.

This is my personal opinion, if you are not on the same page with me drop your own opinion in the comment box.
