He continued: “Imagine someone coming from Wale Wale because of a problem on his registration. This problem has made us not to play our league with cards. When the FA decentralize the player registration, it will lessen the burden on the FA,”
“All District and Regional FAs should vet the registration of players. The FA should only set an eagle eye on the process,” he ended.
