Okey Emordi and Chikeluba Ofoedu, both of Enugu Rangers have been picked as Manager and Player of February respectively by the organisers of the Naija Premier League (Naija PL) Bloggers Awards.
The duo from Rangers were named as the best two performers in the month of February this week following the club’s six-game unbeaten streak.
In the race for the Manager of February, Emordi clearly brushed aside his counterparts from Kwara United (Tunde Sanni), Gombe United (Bernard Ogbe) and Enyimba (Austin Eguavoen) to emerge the winner of last month.
Emordi, who took charge at the Flying Antelopes at the start of this season after resigning at former champions, Enyimba last term, guided Rangers to three wins and three draws in February.
However, in the hunt for the Player of February award, Ofoedu and Mustapha Babadidi of Gombe United played themselves into the mix with four goals each for their clubs.
Ofoedu edged Babadidi by showing class and consistency, as he scored in the big games against Enyimba, Kano Pillars and Heartland.
Certificates of recognition will be presented to Emordi and Ofoedu by the organisers later in March.
The Naija Premier League Bloggers Award is organised by three top Nigerian football blogs – Naijapremierleague.net, Naijafootball247.com and Naijaligue.blogspot.com.
In January, Gombe United duo of Babadidi and Ogbe were named Player and Manager accordingly by organisers of the Naija Premier League Bloggers Awards.
