The General Manager of Tullow Oil Ghana, Charles Darku, has commended Right to Dream Academy (RtD) for their football module in the country.
To the Tullow Oil boss, the academy’s module of nurturing children and putting into their hands the ideals of excellence, integrity, hard work and discipline, in addition to the playing of football, was the right way to go.
He said his outfit shared the same values as RtD, hence their three-year $750,000 sponsorship deal with the academy.
‘You will realize that talents abound here. The academy’s module is the best way to go. As sponsors, we are proud of them because they believe in principles like integrity, diligence and others. That is what we believe in at Tullow,’ he said in a post-memorial match at Akrade in the Eastern Region in honour of Frank Awuah, a staff of Tullow who passed on last year.
Chief Executive of RtD, Tom Vernon, expressed satisfaction in his investment saying, ‘I look back with great satisfaction having succeeded in inculcating a great sense of responsibility into the players.
We are happy to be part of the development of Ghana soccer with this academy system,’ he added.
Notable among players that graduated from the academy are Black Stars players Abdul Majeed Warris, David Acam, and Afriyie Acquah.
A Tullow Oil football side defeated RtD staff 3-1 in the Frank Awuah Memorial Cup match to lift the trophy at stake.
