He commended Zenith Bank for sponsoring the tournament, disclosing that Headmaster’s Cup has been instituted for primary school students.

“We have instituted the Headmastrr's Cup so that we can discover them much younger so that they can know that they can play football as professionals,” the Governor said.

He used the occasion which was witnessed by traditional rulers, religious leaders, among others to thank Isoko people for their peaceful dispositions.

Winners and participants at the tournament went home with different cash and gift prizes while the Governor stated that schools that wins in the tournament apart from the cash gifts, would be given school buses.
