It was a new-month shock as the Akwa Ibom State Government Tuesday sacked the Board and Management of the Akwa United Football Club of Uyo.

The sack of the former board of the club, which was headed by Mr Nse Ube, might not be unconnected with their shock first round ouster from the CAF Confederation Cup,

Akwa United FC was defeated by the Congolese side Vita Club Mukanda of Point Noire at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, the State capital, last weekend.

The removal from office of the former management of the football club was officially made public in a statement issued by the state government.
