Remo Stars who gained promotion from NNL last season will be playing their trademark in the continental tournament next season. They finished ta hird place ahead of rivals Kwara United on the last day with 4 points above Kwara.
Chijioke Akuneto who scored Pride of Rivers’ only goal this evening ended his campaign with 19 goals making him the top scorer of the season. He will be rewarded N3.8m for his terrifying campaign.
Chijioke triumphs over rivals for the Eunisell golden boot. The Rivers United forward has been terrifying this season and will be smiling to the bank for his millions.
What is most important on the last day is the team that will survive relegation and the teams that will be relegated. Yesterday, Kano Pillars joined MFM to become the second team to relegation, while Katsina United and Heartland completed the four teams today.
