9 coaches were selected by the state to undergo the training and they left for Spain on the 18th of March, 2019.
Among those who made the trip are Joseph Egbu, Odinga, Gabriel Nwiyara, Isaac Atonbere and Martins Datoru. Others include Sunny Iseokweima, Albert Chinwo, Victor Babayaro and Eldered Sunju-Abbey, who is the project coordinator.
While addressing newsmen earlier on Monday, Rivers State Commissioner for Sports, Hon. Boma Iyaye, noted that the coaches were chosen after thorough interview without sentiment or political colouration.
“It will give Rivers State youngsters as well as residents and other Nigerians an opportunity to explore their talent while not missing out on formal education”, Hon Iyaye noted.
