“The completion and handover of the neighborhood centres and ICT Centre is indeed a dream come true. Kaduna State is overflowing with talents in different sports. If the sports sector is properly harnessed and developed as a business, it has the potential of fundamentally contributing to the fight against poverty and youth unemployment.
“Sports is also a tool for building peace and ensuring harmonious existence. Through the neighbourhood centres our youths will interact effectively, understand each other better and build lasting relationships. The ICT Centre will contribute to the development of the skills of our youths in information technology. The knowledge economy is the future of the world. Our youths must be repositioned to be globally competitive.
“The initiation of these projects is a deliberate move to complement the wonderful infrastructural drive of our dynamic and innovative Governor, Mallam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.
