Owumi is new Chief Executive Officer of the League Management Company (LMC) of Nigeria.

The Nigeria Football Federation ratified his appointment at an extraordinary meeting held in Benin, Edo State, on Sunday 8 August.

Consequently, Owumi succeeds Hon. Nduka Irabo, the original promoter of LMC, who resigned his appointment years ago.

LMC organizes and promotes the Nigerian professional league with the goal to make it meet global technical and commercial standards.

The company is owned by the NFF and participating Clubs in the Nigerian professional league.

However, only clubs which remain in the Professional League at the start of the season retain shares in the LMC.

Owumi, a former Rangers and national team player, was announced as CEO of Rangers Management Corporation in November 2017.

He guided the Rangers team to professional league victories and to continental campaigns in his almost four-year tenure.

Rangers Team Manager, Coach Salisu Yusuf is also speculated as a replacement for national team coach, the German, Genot Rorh.

Rangers finished in 7th position in the just-ended League Season.
