Edwin Okon's ladies will battle the Lafia Ladies in their bid to reclaim the Nigeria topflight women league diadem on Saturday in Abuja

Rivers Angels are seeking their fifth title in battle against 2013 winners Nasarawa Amazons in the 2016 Nigeria Women Premier League final in Abuja on Saturday.

In a statement, the Nigeria Women Football League secretary Ayo Abdulrahaman confirmed the encounter will hold on Saturday January 21 with kick off time slated for 3pm at the Fifa Goal Project Pitch.

The match staged by the Nigeria Football Federation will decide the winner of the 2015/2016 season for a repeat of the 2013 final with the Lafia girls grabbing it first ever title. 

Nasarawa and Rivers sealed their places in the final after emerging winners in group A and B respectively at the end of the season.

Last September, Rivers Angels narrowly edged Nasarawa Amazons to reach the 2016 Nigeria Women's Federation Cup final after a 1-0 victory in Enugu thanks to Amarachi Ojinma's solitary effort from the spot.

With the 2016 Federation Cup trophy in the bag, Edwin Okon's side are chasing a double for the second year in a row, and must overcome  Christopher Danjuma's ladies who seeks their second title in history.

It recalled that the Port Harcourt side were the reigning champions of the women topflight league after  a 1-0 2015 Super Six final victory against Bayelsa Queens in Umuahia.
