Written by on November 11, 2019

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, could not hide his feelings on Saturday after watching brilliant performances by two young female boxers.

Mr Dare shared a video of eight-year-old Shekinah on Twitter while that of another young female boxer was twitted by a user – @samson_stringz.

In the video, the young boxers were captured at different training sessions by their coach exhibiting performances which caught the attention of the minister.

Reacting to Shekinah’s video, Mr Dare described her performance as “amazing stuff” and a show of “brilliant boxing talent”, saying “the gold is in the child”.

He confirmed that he had reached out to her father and her coach and promised to adopt Shekinah to help develop her talent.

The minister who was also thrilled by the performance of the other young boxer inquired about her name and her coach’s details.

He noted that the performances of the girls have inspired him to lead the ministry to set up a Talent Hunt Programme (THP) aimed at discovering young stars and nurturing them.
