SAT 26 JUNE, 2021-theGBJournal- The Second edition of the African Children’s Talent Discovery Foundation’s (ACTDF) talent hunt and mentoring charity programme would hold between 26th and 27th in Bauchi.
Tagged Engr. Noah Dallaji Legacy Project, this year’s edition would feature football where talents between ages 16 and 18 would be discovered and mentored by big names in Nigeria’s soccer history.
It’ll be the culmination of many weeks of detailed planning by several committees chaired by Engr. Dallaji and of course the beginning of greater things to happen to Nigeria and international football.
The foundation Chairman, Engr. Noah Dallaji, told the media in Abuja that the programme would advance ACTDF’s vision and mission to discover and develop Nigerian talents with the ultimate aim of developing the country.
According to the Philanthropist, the African Children Talent Discovery Foundation (ACTDF), it is important to develop the natural talent of youths in order to maximize their opportunities for a purposeful life.
Dallaji said the Legacy project will continue to progress as an annual event, while assuring that the next edition would attract greater numbers of soccer legends and participants.
Project Coordinator, Emmanuel Babayaro, who also spoke on the preparations, said the event proper would be preceded by an open selection process where the selected talents would be camped and mentored by the likes of Daniel Amokachi, Jay Jay Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo, Austin Eguavoen, Tijani Babangida, Garba Lawal, Austine Eguavon, and others including El Hadji Diouf of Senegal and Stephen Appiah of Ghana.
He added, “Successful participants will be taken to the ACTDF Academy in Abuja and trained before exposing them to foreign trials.”
Chairman, Planning Committee, Daniel Amokachi and ACTDF Ambassador, Tijani Babangida, also expressed their support to the project, affirming that it would help the youths develop their talents and be fulfilled in life.
The long awaited weekend is here as young football talents meet ex international superstar footballers amid top Nollywood showcase laced with superlative performances by selected Nigerian music icons. PSquare will lead other top musicians to perform at the talent showcase.
Delayed broadcast of the Noah Dallaji Legacy Project Football Talent Hunt will be on Supersport and other selected television channels on terrestrial and satellite.
