Sunshine Stars head coach Kennedy Boboye and Akwa United forward Sani Suleiman have been named the winners of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) Manager and Player of the Month LBAs for May/June 2024.

Boboye’s tactical prowess led Sunshine Stars to a remarkable 5-game unbeaten streak, which was crucial in ensuring the team’s survival from relegation.

Among his four wins during this period, two were achieved away from home against Doma and Gombe United. Boboye’s standout performance saw him outshine competitors such as Meremu Okara, Majin Mohammed, and title-winning coach Fidelis Ilechukwu.

Meanwhile, Sani Suleiman of Akwa United clinched the Player of the Month award, marking his second accolade after winning the March edition.

The League Bloggers Awards, along with sponsors 54Footballx, are pleased to recognize and honor both individuals for their exceptional contributions. The awards will be presented to Boboye and Suleiman at their respective home grounds this week.
