Daniel Amokachi, Ibrahim Babangida and Emmanuel Babayaro, have shown support for the African Children Talent Discovery Foundation’s (ACTDF) talent hunt and mentoring programme to be held in in Bauchi between June 26th and 27th.
The talent hunt Tagged ‘Engr. Noah Dallaji Legacy Project’, covers football, music, entertainment and the arts in general.
Recall that recently, an all-star novelty match was held to celebrate Dallaji’s 45th birthday. The football match featured ex-Super Eagles’ stars, Conference Speakers and the celebrant’s friends at the Mediterranean Recreation Centre, Abuja.
This second edition of the project is to feature football where young talents between ages 16 and 18 would be discovered and mentored by big names in Nigeria’s soccer history.
Chairman of the foundation, Engr. Noah Dallaji, said the programme was in furtherance of ACTDF’s vision and mission to discover and develop Nigerian talents to solve some of the challenges of insecurity, social ills and consequently development of the country.
Dallaji at a press conference in Abuja at the weekend commented: “This is what we have been doing to see how we can fill the gap of opportunities for the young ones in the country to make impact and be useful to themselves, their communities and the society at large.’
He said the legacy project will continue to progress as an annual event, noting that this year’s edition was initially planned to incorporate such soccer greats like Ronaldo de Lima, David Beckham and Jose Mourinho but was affected by the Covid-19 restrictions while assuring that the next edition would be bigger in size including caliber of soccer legends who will participate.
He assured that arrangements were being made to making it a hitch-free event.
