UPDATE: Akwa Ibom Governor Gifts Akwa Ibom United FC N70 Million

Today is one of the happiest days for premier league side, Akwa United as the State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has made good his promise of naira rain on the team for winning last year's FA cup.

The Governor put smiles on the faces of Akwa United players this evening with a cheque for N70million.
The club apparently impressed by the feat at a time when some clubs are singing lamentation songs over unpaid wages and fees, took to their twitter handle @AkwaUnited_fc to announce the windfall while thanking the Governor for keeping to his promise.

It might interest you to know that Akwa United claimed the title decided at the Agege Township Stadium otherwise called The Temple after defeating equally hard fighting and ambitious, Niger Tornadoes 3-2 on penalty.

Last year’s victory marked the second time the Uyo-based side will be clinching the title after winning it in 2015 after a 2-1 defeat of Lobi stars.
The Agege Stadium encounter which drew creme dela creme to the temple ended goalless at regulation time and headed straight into penalty.

The team had earlier pocketed N25 million for their effort while runners up Tornadoes got N10million.
