Giwa FC duo claim LBA for April

Ibrahim Shuaibu
Giwa Fc head coach, Tony Bulus and striker Ibrahim Shuaibu, have emerged winners of the League Bloggers Awards (LBA) Manager and Player respectively for the month of April.

It is the first time that both men will be named winners of the prestigious award, which honours the best players and managers in the Glo Premier League.

Bulus claimed the manager's award by fending off close challenges from
Kennedy Boboye (stand-in Sunshine Stars head coach for Englishman Paul
Ashworth), Abdu Maikaba (Wikki Tourists) and Kadiri Ikhana (Enyimba).

The Giwa FC manager edged the rest of the pack by finishing the month
of April unbeaten after guiding his team to two wins, including an away win at Enugu Rangers.

Boboye, Maikaba and Ikhana could only help their teams to two wins apiece.

In the player's category, it was quite a battle among Shuaibu, Enyimba striker Mfon Udoh, Bayelsa United goalkeeper Bassey Akpan, Ubong Ekpai
of Kano Pillars and Wikki's Godwin Obaje.

However, the battle was down to three players - Shuaibu, Udoh and Akpan - and it was the Giwa FC striker who edged the others to claim the LBA for April after he scored two of his three goals at Rangers and Lobi Stars. His goals also helped his team to finish the month under review without a loss.

Though Udoh scored three goals, he fell just short of claiming the gong while Bayelsa United goalkeeper Akpan also had a big shout with three clean sheets against Gabros FC, Sharks and FC Taraba.

Bulus and Shuaibu will receive their awards later in May.
