Akwa Utd’s Turnaround Excites Paul Bassey


Akwa United chairman, Paul Bassey believes the club has turned the corner in this season’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) after a difficult period earlier in the campaign.
United beat El Kanemi Warriors 2-0 in their last game to continue their ascent on the table following consistent results in recent weeks.

Bassey believes the best is yet to come from his charges and predicts even better times ahead.

“Our form is no longer patchy. It was important for us to reinforce during the transfer window and securing the services of seven new players.
“There have been a lot of restructuring in our club and it fills me with happiness because things are going according to script.

“All the clubs ahead of us on the table still have to come to Uyo to play against us (in the NPFL) so I am confident because we will try to take maximum points off them.

“The team is taking shape so I am not losing sleep because I know we will end up well on the table at the end of the season,” he told supersport.com.
Akwa United currently occupies sixth place on the NPFL log with 32 points from 22 matches.
