Zenith/Delta Principals’ Cup: Okowa tips Ikpeba to groom 30 discovered talents

Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has penciled down the football star, Victor Ikpeba, to head the proposed summer camp for the 30 talented students of secondary schools that were discovered at the revamped Principals’ Cup Competition in the state.

 

The competition, which was in its second year, has become a rallying point and a successful Public-Private Partnership (PPP) feat between the state government and the Zenith Bank Plc.

 

He said arrangement had also reached advanced stage to reintroduce the Annnual School Sports Festival in the state for identification and nurturing of talents in different sports.

 

The Governor, represented by his Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Mr Chiedu Ebie, supported by his counterpart in Information, Mr Patick Ukah, at the yearly ministerial briefing in Asaba yesterday expressed his passion to harness the discovered talents.

 

While Ebie maintained that with Ikpeba as the head of the coaching crew, the talented students would fly higher soon, he commended Ukah for donating 2,500 hockey sticks to selected schools to reposition sports in the state.

 

He said, “as part of the efforts at getting our children engaged in tennis at a young age, a one-week tennis workshop was held last year in conjunction with the Duke Odizor Foundation, and in 2016, we successfully hosted the finals of the National Milo Basketball Competition for Secondary School with Osadenis High School, Asaba, emerging the overall winners of the male category.”
