In order to boost sports in Bauchi State and promote youths with football talents from the state, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara.has announced the formation of a football club to be sponsored by him.

The Speaker disclosed this at the finals of the Dogara Unity Cup competition in Bogoro Local Government Area.

Teams from seven Local Government Areas (LGAs) in his zone participated in the competition, with Spiders Dass team coming second place and 3sc of Bauchi team clinching the championship. The fourth to first place teams got cash prizes ranging from N150,000 to N750,000.

Speaking at the event, the Speaker said he was not happy that no Bauchi State indigene is currently in the lineup of the Nigerian national football team and announced that as from 2018, he would sponsor a football competition for teams from all the 20 LGAs to participate in order to brush up their talents.

He also added that he would invite officials from the Nigerian Football Federation and local league to bring their scouts to the event from the quarterfinals stage so that they could possibly pick from the best players for their teams.

This way, he said, Bauchi State would be put in the national football scene and grow to showcase her indigenes on the world stage.

Dogara also announced the formation of his personal club whose players would be drawn from players from the teams that participated in the just concluded Dogara Unity Cup.
