Rufai solicits HotSports’ partnership for football talent hunt

Ex-Super Eagles star, Peter Rufai is seeking the partnership of HotSports Nigeria, a subsidiary of HS Media Group, in discovering and promoting hidden football talents in schools in order to help develop the game nationally.
The renowned ex-goalkeeper nicknamed ‘Dodo Mayana’ was at the company’s corporate headquarters in Oregun, Lagos on Thursday where he held a closed door meeting with the Group’s Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Taye Ige on how best to collaborate in discovering skilful players for Nigeria.

Rufai, in conjunction with Mind Builders Schools in Oregun hold football clinics, where they encourage football participation in schools and skill development.
The retired goalkeeper is seeking HotSports Nigeria’s involvement in the areas of logistics and other support to take the project to higher heights.
“We had a fruitful discussion,” HotSports Nigeria Chairman, Mr. Taye Ige said as he emerged from the meeting.
“He came to ask for our support for his project and the company has agreed to do that in furtherance of its social responsibility to the public and in the company’s belief in grassroots sports development.
“We want to support them because we believe in the development of youth in Nigeria and in giving them opportunity to chart a career in football.  Who knows how many Okochas, Kanus and Iheanachors will develop from there tomorrow.”
In response, Rufai said, “We have always known that our belief in HotSports Nigeria is not misplaced.  We have come to the right place and we were not disappointed.  We share the same ideal with HotSports Nigeria and we look forward to achieving our collective targets.”
