Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Orkula Shaagee

Gombe United for­ward, Sani Ab­bani has emerged the win­ner of the Nige­ria Pro­fes­sional Football League NPFL) VAT Won­der Goal 9 for Match Day 28 in a close race that saw him edge clos­est ri­val, Sun­shine Stars Joseph Abio­dun with Abu Azeez of Shoot­ing Stars com­ing a dis­tant third.

In­ter­est­ingly, Azeez was the run­away win­ner for fans who voted on the twit­ter plat­form; gath­er­ing 53 per­cent of the to­tal 305 votes but fell far be­hind on the web­site polls where he picked just 50 of the to­tal 1008 votes.

On the other hand, Abio­dun cam sec­ond on all the polls but was un­able to se­cure suf­fi­cient num­bers to up­stage Ab­bani who fin­ished bot­tom of the tally on the twit­ter plat­form.

Votes on the web­site were nearly evenly shared be­tween Ab­bani and Abio­dun but it was the Gombe United player that car­ried the day with a to­tal of 524 bring­ing his com­bined votes on the web­site and twit­ter to 582.

Abio­dun had 434 votes from the web­site polls and an­other im­pres­sive 85 votes of the 305 from the twit­ter. Ab­bani thus be­comes the VAT Won­der Goal Award’s ninth win­ner with his goal scored on Match Day 28 against North East neigh­bours, El-Kanemi War­riors of Maiduguri in his side’s 2-0 win.
