Football fans will be the most excited about this, and before you ask, no, it is not a joke. The treasure base of the nation – Rivers State- has indeed partnered with Real Madrid to open a Real Madrid Football academy in the state.
As usual, Nigerians have taken to the ever busy streets of social media to air their views and opinions on this.
While some are convinced that this new development will not last for long because of corruption, others seem to think that kidnappers are going to use this as a new opportunity to make more money by abducting trainers, haha, Nigerians sha!
However, we want to know what YOU think. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Does it look like another shady attempt of the Nigerian government? Is playing football professionally your dream? Let us know if you are packing your bags straight to Rivers State haha.
