Akuku-Toru LGA hols their internal screening exercise to enrol pupils from the LGA into the Real Madrid Football Academy

The internal screening exercise for the enrolment of eligible pupils into the Rivers State Real Madrid Academy earlier scheduled for Monday, 20th June 2022 has been successfully concluded in Akuku-Toru LGA.

The exercise took place at the Akulga stadium in Abonnema from Wednesday through Saturday and saw both female and male pupils competing for the converted position.

The sports enthusiast, Hon Rowland Sekibo, the Executive Chairman of Akuku-Toru LGA was at the stadium to supervise the screening exercise alongside the Screening committee appointed to oversee the entire process.

Speaking to Akulga media team at the end of the exercise, Hon Rowland lauded the Executive Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency Chief (Barr) Nyesom Ezenwo Wike CON, GSSRS, POS -AFRICA, for this laudable initiative. 

He said:

"I am proud of my principal Governor E.N. Wike for instituting the Real Madrid Academy in Rivers States and for making the enrolment process accessible to all because considering our clime, some persons will limit it to a privileged few individuals"

Hon Rowland noted that football will help students discover their potential. He maintains that as a tool for social oriental and integration, sports especially football will help refocus those pupils who find it difficult to fit into the regular academic system, thereby reducing the social vices among the youth.

He further advised those who succeeded in the screening exercise to be good ambassadors of Akulga. He urged them to take this rare opportunity seriously and make their parent proud.
