The state government of Taraba have paid a month’s salary to players of FC Taraba in order to escape the League Management Company’s hammer.

But it is confirmed that 11 months salaries are actually owed and the LMC swung into action by warning the Jalingo clubside to pay salaries owed or risk getting 6 points deducted from all points garnered during this season’s NPFL.


The General Manager of the club, Abdullahi Baballe, gave reasons to the move of paying only a month salary out of 11 and promises that the remaining 10 month’s will be paid in installments.

“The players  were paid a month’s salary  yesterday (Friday),” Baballe revealed to ‎

“It’s difficult for us to pay them  at once, so, we are going to pay the salary instalmentally.

“We are cautious of the directive by the LMC and are doing everything to pay the players.”

FC Taraba presently occupy the 19th postion on the NPFL log with 30 points from 32 games..
