Zenith Bank supports Delta State Principal’s Cup

Zenith Bank has agreed to help resuscitate the Delta State Principal’s Cup Football competition for Secondary Schools.

According to the organisers, Hideaplux limited, Warri,  the tournament begins on Monday with every  secondary school in the 25 Local Governments of the state involved in the preliminaries.

The CEO of Hideaplux Limited Tony Pemu commended  Zenith Bank for its decision to contribute to the development of football in the state.

Pemu  said,  “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 to showcase their talents over the years.

“The sponsorship of Zenith Bank will take our football back to where it belongs in the next few years.”

Group Managing Director of Zenith, Peter Amangbo, said   the tournament was  part of the bank’s way of developing the Nigerian youth.

“We always try to assist youths to showcase their talents and this is just one of such events. Delta has a rich sports background and we felt it is important that the secondary school football competition is revived,” Amangbo said.

There are over 1,200 private secondary schools and 446 public government secondary schools in the state.
