... He's an excellent footballer who saved his Football Club (SV Werder Bremen) from relegation on the last day of the just concluded Bundesliga game against Frankfurt...
Anthony Ujah who hail from Orokam district in Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue State, Nigeria, was born on October 14, 1990 to the popular Ujah family. He's a younger brother to the popular London-based Dr. West Adoyi Ujah.
The former 'Games Prefect' of Government Model Secondary School Otukpo who graduated from the Business Administration department of Benue State Polytechnic, Ugbokolo is carving a niche for himself and making the entire Idoma, Benue and Nigeria proud in his career overseas.
While home, setting aside his career hustling from his Government Model Secondary School Otupko and the help he rendered to the Benue State Polytechnic Sports System, Tony Ujah started from the 'Lucky Stars of Otukpo' to 'Abuja FC' and made it to 'Worri Wolfs' before going for international passport and visas.
He started his European quest from Lillestrom Football Club, Norway 2010;
Moved to Mainz05 FC, Germany 2011;
Loaned to Koln Football Club, Germany 2012 and was permanent a year afterwards until 2015 when Werder Bremen paid over €4million to employ his services. No regrets to Werder Bremen as Tony Ujah proved his qualities by scoring twice in London against West Ham United in a pre-season tie against the Hammers.
Currently, he plays for SV Werder Bremen, Germany, and has never scored less than 10 goals per season for any Club he finds himself.
He's an excellent footballer who saved his SV Werder Bremen Football Club from relegation on the last day of the just concluded Bundesliga games where they played against Frankfurt...
He is currently linked with Norwich City FC, Stoke City FC and Swansea FC all in the United Kingdom.
Some Chinese clubs have also indicated interest in Ujah and are also ready to pay him about $300,000 monthly but he's said to have turned down the offer on the premise that the Chinese league is only a money making league and not good enough for a young career person like him.
This coming summer is surely a test year for the family members and his managers because they would have to decide whether to allow him become rich in few seasons or play and become legendary in the world's football.

Tony Ujah is one of those that believe so much in the Idoma project. His deep concern for the growth and development of Idoma land is evident in the fact that he comes home after every football season every year to handle the Anthony Ujah Grassroot Football Tournament himself and thence pick whom to take with him overseas for continuum. Tony has vowed that if he spends 20 years overseas, he would raise 20 great footballers of Idoma origin who would be absolutely doing well all over the world.
He solely renovated the hospital opposite Otukpo Police Station after seeing the dilapidated state of the hospital during one of his home visits. He single-handedly bought a unit of 200KVA transformer and electrified the whole streets behind Otukpo VIP lounge with his personal income to the tune of over N6.5 million
Tony Ujah is a sponsor of Idoma Widows. He empowers them through his mother, Lady Victoria Ego Ujah (Mrs).
Tony Ujah is putting some smile on somebody's face somewhere, everyday. He's Idoma and the Idoma nation is proud of him. However, Tony Ujah is the quiet type and has done a lot underground. New-Nigeria Reporters correspondents who visited the Idoma-born upcoming football legend were told a few about his good work for the Idoma people due to his quiet nature.
