Alhassan, Maikaba named LBA winners

Akwa United's golden boy, Alhassan Ibrahim, gets  April LBA gong

Akwa United duo of Alhassan Ibrahim and Abdu Maikaba have been named
League Bloggers Awards (LBA) Player and Manager for April respectively
following their outstanding performances in the Nigeria Professional
Football League (NPFL) in the month under review.

Alhassan emerged winner of the player's award for April after seeing
off challenges from the trio of Chinedu Udechukwu of Katsina United,
Nasarawa United defender Yinka Onaolapo and Lobi Stars forward Anthony

The Akwa United attacking midfielder accounted for four of his team's
seven goals scored in April and also capped his outing for last month
with a fine assist that helped the Uyo club to a 1-0 win at four-time
Nigerian champions Kano Pillars.

Akwa United made it a clean sweep in April as Maikaba claimed the
manager's prize ahead of Plateau United's Kennedy Boboye, Kabiru Dogo
of Nasarawa United and FC Ifeanyiubah's Ghanaian coach Yaw Preko.

 Maikaba led his team to a 100 per cent record in April - a feat only
achieved by Boboye in the same month, though the Akwa United manager
edged his Plateau United counterpart by three points.

The former Wikki Tourists head coach masterminded wins for Akwa United
from the dugout against 3SC, MFM and at Kano Pillars.

The next LBA monthly award will look at the performances of player and
coaches in the NPFL for the month of May.
