The Delta State Principal’s Cup competition for secondary schools which has been grounded over the years is back with a big bang courtesy of Zenith Bank.
All the secondary schools in the 25 local governments of the state will be involved in the competition in which the preliminaries are expected to start today.
Hideaplux Limited, Warri are the organisers of the event and the CEO of the outfit, Tony Pemu, said at the weekend that the Zenith Bank initiative was timely.
“It is a big blessing because Delta is noted for talents in all sports especially football but our young ones have not had the opportunity over the years.
“The sponsorship of Zenith Bank will take our football back to where it belongs in the next few years,” he said.
Mr. Peter Amangbo, Group Managing Director of Zenith, noted that the Principal’s Cup project in Delta State is part of the bank’s way of developing the Nigerian youth.
