Chukwuemeka Obioma, a remarkable striker renowned for his prowess on the field, clinched two distinguished accolades—Striker of the Year and Player of the Year.
His stunning feat of netting 16 goals, securing the coveted Golden Boot, played a pivotal role in propelling Enyimba to their historic 9th league title. Obioma’s exceptional performance earned him a well-deserved spot in the winner’s circle.
Nduka Junior, the captain of Remo Stars, basked in recognition as the Defender of the Year, while Kayode Bankole, the team’s goalkeeper, earned the title of Goalkeeper of the Year.
The midfield category saw Joseph Atule, a dazzling winger who previously showcased his talents with Lobi Stars, being crowned Midfielder of the Year.
His remarkable season with the Makurdi-based team garnered him this honor, and he has since embarked on a promising journey with Enyimba, making a notable impact.
Daniel Ogunmodede of Remo Stars commanded the spotlight as he seized the Coach of the Year award. His adept leadership steered Remo Stars to a remarkable second-place finish—an unprecedented achievement—alongside an inaugural qualification for the CAF Champions League.

Albert Korvah, a Liberian winger representing Rivers United, was crowned Foreign Player of the Year, acknowledging his outstanding contributions.
The Young Player of the Year title was bestowed upon Umar Bala, a rising star from Plateau United’s academy. At just 15 years of age, his exceptional skills shone brightly, earning him the Most Valuable Player award during the NPFL U-15 Championship, while aiding his team in securing a commendable second-place finish.
