Digital Scouting Africa: Plateau, Kaduna remains Nigeria’s football talent hub


Digital Scouting Africa recently conducted a talent identification phase in Jos North and Jos South Local Government areas of Plateau State, as well as in Kaduna City of Kaduna State. The purpose of the search was to find the next big talent in football from Nigeria who could make a mark on the global stage.
Day 2, 3 and 4 of this Talent identification phase, which took place between April 23 and 25, saw some exciting talents spotted, with Ajester Football Academy producing a large chunk of the players selected from the Jos North centre.
Giving his impression about the level of turnout of players across the various centres visited, Project Coordinator, Talent Identification phase of the programme, Emmanuel Obi, stated that the exercise has been a very successful one and he’s been so impressed with the quality of talents on parade.
“We have never had doubts in the abundance of talents spread across Nigeria,” Obi said.
“But what has always been missing is the lack of visibility and the poor football education amongst players at the grassroots level. We have identified these flaws and through Digital Scouting Africa, we hope to address them.”
The Center Coordinator of Jos North LGA and the Proprietor of Ajester Football Academy, Nura Nakargo, in his response as it concerns the mould of Scouting by DSA when questions were thrown at him, said: “I am more than impressed with the quality of the programme and the criteria used in selecting players from this exercise. It’s one of the best and most organised I have had encounters with and I must say that I am impressed with the organisers of the event, Tosmicom Sports Agency.”
Attention shifts to Makurdi and Gboko, both of Benue State from April 27 to 28 for another phase of Talent Identification.
The scouting programme has been put together by Tosmicom Sports Agency and Digital Scouting Network and it’s financially supported by Cyan Excellence Investment Nig. Ltd.
