The Deputy Managing Director of Zenith Bank, the sponsor of rejuvenated Principal’s Cup in Delta State, Ebenezer Onyeagwu, has said the main objective of the competition was to discover talents for the country.
He added that there was need to bring back the lost glory of the competition which produced top stars like Austin Okocha, and others in the past. “Talking about the Principals’ Cup, we decided that it is time to take back our lost glory like we use to have in the 70’s and 80’s,” he said.
“The competition was the epitome of youth development, and we decided to do this so that we can provide the opportunity for talents to be discovered and nurtured and opportunity to make it more expansive, all inclusive, compliment the state efforts in terms of social development and also create a basis for standardisation.
“We want to tell the school proprietors too that it is not just about the academics, but the sporting aspect of a child’s life is also very important. “Sport is a big business and we are interested in tapping into it, by partnering with Delta State, we can identify some of the stars that will blossom to replace the likes of Okocha, Sunday Oliseh, late Stephen Keshi, Austin Eguavoen, and the rest who are all product of the Principal’s Cup in the past.”
