The Chairman of Nigeria Union of Journalists, Elder Patrick Albert has congratulated Akwa united over their 2 goals victory against the Hawks of Gambia in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Albert who is also the Pioneer Secretary of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) in the State noted last night that the victory which he described as a great feat is birthed by their superlative performance.
The NUJ Chairman said that by the victory, the players and the Coaching crew led by Abdu Maikaba have proved their mettle. He commended them for making Akwa Ibom State and the country which they among other teams represent proud.
While urging them to sustain the victorious pace, Albert advised ” By demystifying the Hawks at their home, other teams will be wary and will approach matches against Akwa united with tact and seriousness. Akwa united must sustain their form to progress in the competition “.
A brace by Cyril Olisema was all that Akwa united FC needed in Gambia to turn the tide into 2-3 aggregate thus fly pass the Hawks to face Al-Ittihad of Libya in the next round.
