Akwa United yesterday apologized to those they referred to as “genuine fans and supporters” for their current poor run in the four week old Nigerian Professional Premier League (NPFL).

According to a statement signed by the Club’s Media Officer, Mfon Patrick, Akwa United Chairman, Paul Bassey, pleaded for patience, saying he has “a strong conviction that this may turn out to be our best year in the league. We are trying not to misplace the emotional outburst of some fans last Wednesday at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.

“Every fan has the right to feel bad when his or her team is doing badly, yet we must guard against taking the laws into our own hands by way of protest or dissatisfaction. We can understand what Liverpool fans are going through for losing two key matches at home in one week, including a semifinal against Southampton after losing to Swansea 3-2 in the Premiership yet all hell has not been let loose.”

He added, “The league fixture as it involves Akwa United is the most trying of all the teams. We started off in Ilorin on Sunday, rushed back to play Rivers on Wednesday (they strolled down the road) ran back to Bauchi (over 19 hrs on the road) hurried back to play Rangers (they strolled down the road) and here we are off to Katsina (Two days on the road) and we are expected to get back in time to be ready for Remo Stars.
