Speaking ahead of the sports festival, Group Managing Director of Adron Homes and Property Limited, Aare Adetola EmmanuelKing, said he is putting all resources into catching them young and also promoting friendship and bonding between residents of their estate within the Simawa Axis. “The summer games will keep the children mentally fit, strong and also do something challenging among themselves. It will also help them form a great bond and also avail their parent to bond and exchange contact with other parents who are residents. Phase One and its extension and Phase 2 and its extension is quite a long distance so the only way to bring everyone under one roof is through sport that’s why we came up with the children’s summer game.”
Aare Adetola also disclosed that; the best time to catch athletes is when they are growing so their hidden talents can be discovered early and nurtured to greatness. “Serena and Venus Williams were discovered early by their father who trained them in the tennis game; today the sisters are both champions in tennis. This has also motivated me to hold the Summer games for children living within our estate.”
The Chief Executive Officer of Match International Limited, Waidi Akanni disclosed that the mini-sports festival which is one of the several Corporate Social Responsibility programmes of the leading estate company, is set to set a benchmark for grassroots sports development and sponsorship in the world of corporate sports engagement.
