Chief
Executive Officer of the League Bloggers Awards, Ojekere Aikhoje is optimistic
that this Sunday’s show will be the dawn of a new beginning for Nigerian League
players.

is a start but we believe that if we do it well enough, there will be more
interest next season.

of it. This is our own way of recognizing the efforts of our players,” Ojekere
said.
