“I am more than overjoyed to score on my debut for Akwa United. It was an amazing feeling and it will remain with me forever. I had the chance to shoot and I utilized it. It was another feeling entirely as soon as the ball went in,” Nya told Goal.

“I joined Akwa United at the beginning of the pre-season after I scored against them last season in Makurdi in a league game. It was my only goal of last season but I have started this season impressively scoring in my first game. It feels great to score for my new team.

“We have devoted lots of time to having shooting practice sessions and I am happy that our efforts have not been in vain. I will continue to do my best to help my team and I won’t be setting any goal target for myself,” he concluded.
