Headmasters’ cup champions to get Okowa’s 32-seater bus
• Final holds November 18
Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has promised to give the winner of the Headmasters’ Cup a brand new 32-seater Coaster Bus. The final, earlier billed for November 11, will now hold on November 18.
The Permanent Secretary, Delta State in the Ministry of Basic and Secondary School Education, Augustin Oghoro, disclosed that many plans were underway to make the final a remarkable event.
Oghoro said the governor is always committed to the development of youths in every area of endeavour, especially sports.
“The entire state has been in a festive mood because of the Headmasters’ Cup and the Principals’ Cup taking place at the same time.
“We are number one in sports in the country and we have to work hard to remain at the top. That is why we cannot ignore our grassroots programmes that we rely upon to bring out fresh talents every year.
“Zenith Bank has been of tremendous help to the state but we are working hard to get some other sponsors to help lift the tournament at local government level and in the zones.”
Meanwhile, finalists have emerged in the Headmasters’ Cup football competition for primary schools. Valley Stream British School, Sapele, defeated Destiny Primary School, Ughelli North 1-0 to qualify for the final. They will play against Ogbe Primary School Effurun, which defeated Royal Foundation Primary School, Ogwashi-Uku, 3-0.
The Headmasters’ Cup final holds on Thursday, November 18 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, with the third-place match between Destiny Primary School and Royal Foundation serving as a curtain-raiser.
