She reiterated her commitment to finish the project and see it benefit the people in the community.
She said: “They say that home is where the heart is, and Jada holds the warmest position, not just in my heart, but for all of my family as well, and so it was an easy decision to situate this laudable project here,”
“Not only are these materials healthy for the environment, they are so sustainable, in fact, that they are expected to remain standing after our life time.
“This is beyond football, class rooms and relaxation spots for me, it is a legacy that I am burdened to bequeath to our people and it is important that our children and their children also enjoy the benefits of what we achieve here today. Because this center will serve four local government areas, it is being built with a sense of community, our biggest strength in this axis. We love each other and our shared values were very key when we designed the project.
“I run a platform called The Conversation With Hauwa Atiku-Uwais and it teaches Nigerians of all ages to actively participate in the politics that shapes their present and future. The Conversation has engaged thousands of Nigerians and we now know their needs, fears and challenges.
“Because sport is an important component of national development, I am importing a 30 meters by 60 meters, 7-aside astro-turf for football and handball. Our youths will be able to play their favourite games on a world class pitch. I hope that this will spur them to be better motivated and to shun criminal activities that are capable of ruining their future.
