Ivorian striker, Seka Pascal and Bendel Insurance gaffer, Monday Odigie, have emerged as League Bloggers Awards (LBA) Player and Manager for the month of April, respectively, in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

The duo claimed the individual prizes for their outstanding outings in the month under review with their clubs.

The Rangers International of Enugu striker scored four goals in six matches to beat Bendel Insurance goalkeeper, Amas Obasogie, Nasarawa United’s Sunusi Ibrahim and Enyimba’s Thomas Zenke to claim the gong.

Unbeaten Odigie faced serious challenge from Enyimba’s Usman Abdallah, who was also unbeaten, Rangers’ Gbenga Ogunbote and Rivers United’s Stanley Eguma.

However, Odigie edged his counterparts after stopping Ogunbote’s unbeaten run and claiming a rare point at the Enyimba fortress, in Aba.

He also earned a point at Kwara United to finish and a draw at home with Remo Stars, to finish unbeaten.

Abdallah played goalless with Insurance at home as well as a victory over Kwara United, then earned a point away at Lobi Stars to complete the month.

Ogunbote had a brilliant run with road trip wins at Kwara United and Sunshine Stars as well as home victories over Katsina United, Sunshine Stars and MFM.

Insurance, led by Odigie eventually dented his record.

The LBA’s monthly award is sponsored by Naija League Magazine, nigerianfootballer.com, destination brand, Jos Chillin and online shopping portal, Naarya Stores.
Pascal and Odigie will receive their awards in the coming week.
