We have fans that spend hours watching the English Premier League, Italian Serie A, Spanish La Liga, but why do Nigerians rarely watch our Nigerian Professional Football League?
This is a question that varies with different people and mindset.
Naijaloaded Sport has complied the best answers though, We List The BIG 5 Reasons Why Nigerians Hate Watching The Nigerian Professional League:

In fact if you are fan of the away side, and your team manages to win, you are advised to leave the stadium on time before the home supporters catch you!
Lack Of Quality In The NPFL

Most of the stadiums are poorly maintained and the result is a disaster.
Poor Welfare For Footballers In NPFL
How do you expect players to put in a shift on match days when some clubs owe players salary for as long as six months?!?
