By Samuel Victor Akpan
The Anambra State House of Assembly says it is partnering with the State Sports Development Commission to identify and develop sports talents in the state.
The Chairman, House Committee on Youth, Sports and the Creative Economy, Noble Igwe disclosed this to Correspondent, Kenechukwu Ofomah during a sporting event at Aguleri, Anambra East Council Area of Anambra state.
According to Igwe, under the initiative, the talents will be discovered at primary and secondary schools at the grassroots and assembled in a camp where they will be trained.
“We are trying to embark on what we call talent hunt, whereby we go to primary schools, secondary schools, discover fresh talents and partner with the schools.”
“We get to know those who are talented in one sport or the other then bring them together and train them, after training them, expose them, from there they take off”, said the House Committee Chairman.
According to the Legislator, this will not only ensure that the state continues to lead in sports but will also help open up the sector as a wealth creation for the youths in the state.
