Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has recorded another great feat in the world of foot ball. This is in consonant with the yearning of the youth in Delta and beyond as Under-16 , known as the Under-16 Elite league has been scheduled to be launched in no time soon.
This good news was let of the bag by the Chairman and Chief Executive officer (CEO) of the league, Sam Sodje, an Ex super eagle and Postmouth international.
It is worthy to note that, Sam Sodje whose life revolves round the leather game from childhood, paid his dues in the world of football and his passion has always been narrowed on the lane of Nigeria youths in finding their rythem and how their football talents can be discovered, guided and mentored so that they can achieve that which they set as target in the near further.
The league which is designed in sequence and in line with the English premier league match fixtures and timetable, will serve as a platform and springboard for young talented Deltans to be nurtured and proudly led to stardom. However, the planned league which is already vincible in the embryo, has the blessings of the State Governor who is a lover of sport and enigma when it comes to issues concerning the youth of the State and how they can better their future.
The Under-16 Elite league promises to be outstanding, being the first of its kind in the State. The youths in Delta State on their part, can’t wait for its kickoff.
While we await the inauguration of this great league that will be seasoned with lots of expectations, we wish the Youths of Delta State to key into this golden opportunity that is aimed at not just getting them busy and responsible but will also lead them in the right path of heir football career.
