Akwa sign new players, coach targets title


Akwa United have signed  five new  players to boost their  squad. The new players are  former AC Milan youngster   Harmony Ikande, goalkeeper Olorunleke Ojo, former Super Eagles invitee Gabriel Okechukwu, Akwa Starlet striker Edem Atang and Katsina United midfielder Chris Lolo.

The chairman of the club, Mr. Paul Bassey, who unveiled the new players in Uyo on  Wednesday, said they  were recruited to strengthen the team following the injury crisis in  the Premier League side.

Bassey said, “We have done remarkably well by finishing in the fifth position in the first stanza of the league  after we languished between 19th and 20th in the first five weeks of the league.

“We are hopeful of doing better in the second stanza of the league and the only way we can reward our supporters and financiers is by getting a continental ticket.
