Akwa United have signed five new players to boost their squad. The new players are former AC Milan youngster Harmony Ikande, goalkeeper Olorunleke Ojo, former Super Eagles invitee Gabriel Okechukwu, Akwa Starlet striker Edem Atang and Katsina United midfielder Chris Lolo.
The chairman of the club, Mr. Paul Bassey, who unveiled the new players in Uyo on Wednesday, said they were recruited to strengthen the team following the injury crisis in the Premier League side.
Bassey said, “We have done remarkably well by finishing in the fifth position in the first stanza of the league after we languished between 19th and 20th in the first five weeks of the league.
“We are hopeful of doing better in the second stanza of the league and the only way we can reward our supporters and financiers is by getting a continental ticket.
