The midfielder was nominated in the category alongside Kotoko's Saddick Adams and Amidaus Professionals’ Isaac Amoah.

In other categories, Steve Pollack was adjudged the Best Coach after leading the Porcupine Warriors to the FA Cup trophy last season.

Medeama SC centre-back Ibrahim Yaro was also named the best defender of the competition at the awards gala.

The Goal of the Year award went to Amidaus Professionals’ Isaac Amoah after his stunner in the completion, whiles Raphael Ocloo and Sadick Adams emerged joint top scorers after both netting five times in the competition.


The Referee of the Year award also went to Awal Mohammed, with Wa All Stars' David Abagnar scooping the Most promising Player award.
