Delta revives Principals’ Cup


Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa

THE Delta State Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding  with  Hideaplux Limited to revive the Principals’ Cup football competition in  the state.

The  Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Festus Agas, who signed the MoU on behalf of the state,   said  Governor Ifeanyi Okowa was committed to human capacity development.

Agas  urged the consulting  firm to source funds for the competition,  stressing  that  the state  government would not provide funds for  the football tournament.

The Chief Executive Officer of Hideaplux Limited, Mr. Tony Oritse-Pemu,  said, “From experience,  I discovered that a lot of our youths need  mental reset for them to be great. I was also able to identify the fact that our young people with great sporting talents no longer have a platform to showcase and grow their talent.

“As a result, they now channel their energy into social vices like cultism,  truancy and hooliganism. So we thought of engaging one of the most effective platform to use in tackling these negative trend and what came to our mind is the secondary schools being an environment where we have a lot of youth at their emerging stages in life.”

The preliminary rounds of the competition  will be played    in February next year, with  the final expected to be played on May 27.
