Nasarawa United’s Nwankwo said, “I couldn’t sleep when I was told of the award. I thank Eunisell for making our league stars see a big reason to put in their best during the season.

This honour is special and one of a kind. It’s a pleasure to win the Eunisell Boot as this is a great motivation for me to achieve more.”Nwankwo also achieved a club record as the first Nasarawa United player to score 19 goals in the topflight. Joint-winner, Akwa United’s Atshimene, equally applauded Eunisell for the initiative.

“I commend Eunisell for the award, which will bring more publicity to the league. I hope more organisations could join up to do what Eunisell is doing to the league.“I feel happy and overwhelmed because it’s a great feeling being honoured with the Eunisell Boot award.

I thank God for making this happen”, he statedAtshimene scored 19 goals in just his first season with the Uyo side.
