As the league gets tougher the quest for relevance in the Nigeria football league becomes hot as every team aspire to win the league title or produce the most valuable player.

Fides gathered that Mfon Udoh was the highest paid player in the NPFL, follow suits were Godpower Aniefiok, Juwon Oshaniwa, most Akwa united players earns 800, 700, 600, 500, with only one player earning 1million as a whole in Nigeria league.

It is not a surprise that, the club is doing well right from three season ago having won the Aiteo cup two times in three years and ended last Season second position on the log . This season they are finishing first on the log with two games left already.

I think Elder Paul Bassey administration has transformed Akwa United that used to fight to escape relegation year in year out and now title contenders and trophies winner in the last four years.

Far back then in the NPFL Enyimba and Kano pillars used to be highest paid team in NPFL but now the promise keeper kept the promise and became the highest paid team in terms of salary to Nigeria league players.
