The players shortlisted are Clinton Jephta (Niger Tornadoes), Deputy Echeta (Rivers United),

Sikiru Alimi returned to scoring with three goals for Remo Stars. He is currently the NPFL joint-top scorer with 14 goals.


Former Bendel Insurance forward Deputy Echeta netted three goals to help Rivers United win two of the five games played in the month.

Japhet grabbed four goals for the Ikon Allah Boys in April.



Both Michael Ibe and Junior Lokosa also make the list after scoring three goals each for Katsina United and Sporting Lagos, respectively.
