Organisers of the Nigeria Pitch Awards have announced that the Chairman of the Police Service Commission and former Inspector-General of Police, Mike Okiro, will be handed a Special Achievement in Football award in Kaduna on Friday.

The third edition of the annual Nigeria Pitch Awards will hold in Kaduna on Friday, with red carpet starting at 8pm — an hour after the end of the Nigeria/Egypt 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match.

Also to be honoured, with the Sam Okwaraji Award, is Super Eagles’ midfielder, Mikel Obi. The Chief Operating Officer of Matchmakers Consult International Limited, Nelson Olafisoye, told thenff.com on Wednesday that the Chelsea of England ace is the player with the highest number of caps in the Super Eagles’ camp now, and therefore deserved the honour.

 “We found out that Mikel has the highest number of caps in the camp presently. That itself is a great sign of commitment that should be applauded.”
