At the New Jos Stadium, the Lobi Stars midfielder Odinaka was named player of the game as the Nigerian Premier Football League team maintained its perfect home record.

The midfielder earned the match award during their north-central derby victory by putting up a commendable performance in the matchday 16 tie against the visiting Niger Tornadoes.

The Makurdi-based team’s playoff ambitions were strengthened further by the midfielder’s long-range goal, which differentiated both teams in a closely contended match.

The defensive midfield’s long-range goal in the second half gave the table-toppers a 1-0 victory over their bitter rivals, the Niger Tornadoes, in Plateau State.

The Special Adviser to the Governor of Benue State, Terver Akase, donated a prize money of 20,000 naira to Francis Odinaka for his display, which the award recipient accepted and thanked the donor for.

The outstanding midfielder expressed gratitude and asked God to continue to bless the multifaceted Special Adviser abundantly and stated that the act would motivate them to produce even better outcomes for Lobi Stars.
