Kennedy Boboye got a win on his debut as Akwa United head Coach following the 2-1 victory over Rivers United in a midweek NPFL match at the Nest of Champions.
Akwa United appointed Boboye after the resignation of John Obuh.
The latter struggled to steer the reigns of the club, picking just 7 points from 8 games.
Goals from Akarandut Orok (10′) and Samson Gbadebo (90+7′) either side of Ngouan Konan’s (34′) for Rivers United, sealed it.
