CAF member, Aaron Samuel, endorse NDDC U-17 Peace Cup
The U-17 Peace Cup, sponsored by the Effiong Akwa-led Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) board, is gathering more momentum, with stakeholders increasingly throwing their weight behind the competition.
Joining the list is medical committee member of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Dr. Peter Singabele, and former Super Eagles striker, Aaron Samuel.
According to Dr. Singabele, who spoke during an interview with a member of the media and publicity committee of the competition, Patrick Ndubuisi, in Yenagoa, said the U-17 and other under age group tourney remains the best avenue to select and groom budding talents for the future.
“The competition is a beautiful development, and with NDDC getting involve means the Niger Delta states will certainly have an opportunity to showcase their talents mainly from the rural areas.”
The one time member of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), equally commended the Sole Administrator alongside board members of the NDDC, and the organisers, the Grassroots Sports Federation, South-South Zone, for the initiative.
Ex-Super Eagles player, Aaron Samuel, who also lauded the NDDC board led by Effiong Akwa for sponsoring the competition, expressed hope it would produce stars in the future, as he assured to lend his support.
