The management of Akwa Ibom-owned club Akwa United have read the riot act to its players and coaches after its dismal start to the season. The former league champions are currently bottom of the Nigeria Premier Football League after Matchday 4 with just 2 points.

The team, led by coach Fatai Osho, was handed the warning at the meeting called by the management of the team, led by veteran journalist Elder Paul Bassey, to review the team’s terrible start to the 2023/2024 season. They were urged to turn the tide around in the ongoing season.

The Chairman, Elder Paul Bassey, appreciated the fans for their loyal support despite the Promise Keepers’ terrible start to the season and also tendered an apology to the fans, promising that the team will turn around its fortunes. Speaking, he said, “terrible emotional torture you have made our teeming fans go through, and we want to sincerely apologize to them and ask that you quickly remedy the situation, even by the next match in Benin.” “We are a club rich in tradition and endowed with a winning mentality. We don’t participate in the league for participation’s sake. We compete to win laurels and qualify for the continent, and our record in the past five seasons can attest to that.”

Paul Bassey also spoke to the team, challenging them to improve their performances as they have no reason to complain considering the way the welfare of the players and the team is well taken care of. He said at the meeting, “As the management of this club, we have made our players’ welfare package a top priority. We are not owing any staff of this club because salaries and bonuses are paid as and when due. As a club, we don’t lack anything because the government of Pastor Umo Eno has provided us with all the necessary support we need.

“Our players don’t have any reason not to perform well. They must stand up and be counted, be more committed, dedicated, disciplined, and focused while representing this club. Our players and coaches must always be at their best, so they can give us the results we need to achieve our target at the end of the season, which is to win the league again, just as we did in 2021.”

Akwa United faces an uphill task to turn things around as they travel to Benin to play against the fourth-placed team, Bendel Insurance, who have a one hundred percent record at home so far this season.
