Globacom and the LMC signed a three-year deal in 2012.
“The LMC is happy with the Globacom sponsorship of the Premier League. It is work in progress,” Dikko was quoted as saying by Gongnews.
“The league sponsorship with Glo is ending this year and we shall work out some level of improvements if it must be renewed to favour the league.”
Dikko also promised that all games will be televised, but urged stakeholders to contine to rally around the domestic league.
“Everybody has to support us to deliver the brand which the league is turning out to be. That is why we are doing everything possible to ensure that all matches in the league are put on television,” he continued.
“It is making the fans to appreciate and love their game. The referees know that at any point there are people watching over them. Beyond these, so many of them get their motivation to be able to do their jobs well.
