The teams in the Nigeria National League (NNL) have continued to be impressive in the 2024 President Federation Cup, defeating the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) clubs. Now, at least one team from the lower league will be represented in the final.

Barring any last-minute changes to the fixtures, it is now evident that the final of the 2024 edition of the President Federation Cup will be played between an NPFL team and one of the NNL teams.

According to the fixtures, Elkanemi Warriors of Maiduguri and Kebbi United of Birnin Kebbi, both NNL clubs, will face each other in the semi-finals. Meanwhile, two NPFL clubs, Abia Warriors of Umuahia and Kano Pillars, will also face each other to determine the second finalist on a date to be decided by the NFF.

To qualify for the semi-finals, Kano Pillars FC overpowered the hard-fighting Sunshine Stars of Akure 5-4 on penalties after full-time scores of 1-1. Rabiu Ali put the Pyramid Boys ahead in the early minutes of the game before the team from Owena State equalized before halftime.

The match was played at the Area 3 Football Pitch, Abuja.

At the Bwari Township Stadium, Abuja, El-Kanemi Warriors defeated fellow NNL clubside Inter Lagos by two goals to one.

In another NNL affair at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano, EFCC FC of Abuja and Kebbi United of Birnin Kebbi ended goalless, with Kebbi United advancing on 4-3 penalties.

At the FIFA Goal Project Field of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja, Abia Warriors eliminated Sokoto United by five goals to four on penalties after full-time scores of one goal apiece.

Goalkeeper Ali Ishaku made the headlines for the Umuahia Warriors when he saved one of the penalty kicks.

Prince Okorie had put the Warriors in front from the penalty spot in the 31st minute after a Sokoto United player had blocked Sunday Megwo's goal-bound shot with his arm, prompting the center referee to award a penalty kick to Abia Warriors.

Sokoto United leveled the scores in the 58th minute off a goalmouth scramble after the Warriors failed to clear their lines from a free kick.

Abia Warriors' goalkeeper, Ali Ishaku, made a crucial save, and his teammates, Prince Okorie, Collins Nwoburuoke, Adejoh Ojonugwa, Ayodele Ezekiel, and Sunday Megwo, all converted their spot-kicks to take the team to the last four for the first time in the club's history.
