A patron of the Books & Boots Foundation has hailed the construction of a multipurpose mini sports complex in Nima, Accra.
Texas born American security expert and philanthropist, Mr. Jerry Teeler has commended Alhaji Salamu Amadu for putting up the facility right at the heart of the community commonly referred to as “Ghetto City”.
Mr.Teeler who was speaking from the Virgin Islands exclusively to Sports World Ghana, said he hopes the initiative of the young man would be supported and replicated in other communities across the capital and else where in Ghana.
“I think this is a real big deal because it’s coming from a kid who grew up in the ghetto, worked hard to become successful has stayed in the community to help improve the lives of his people”.
Mr Teeler who is currently supervising a multi million dollar Tourism rehabilitation complex in the Cayman Islands, says he has been impressed with the way and manner in which Alhaji Amadu has been able to mobilize resources to construct the impressive complex.
The American has promised to do all he can to support the Nima project and others like it through the Books & Boots Foundation.
Whilst in Ghana for three years, Teeler was the health and safety manager of the Tema port expansion project.
He’s expected back in Ghana in the next few weeks to conclude negotiations with potential partners ahead of the official launch of the Books and Boots Foundation.
The Emirates Arena will be launched in Nima on Saturday the 28th of September by the Afro-Arab Group which is chaired by Alhaji Amadu.
It would be the climax of activities in conjunction with the World Heart day on September 28th.
Activities lined up to celebrate the day includes an evening soccer match in Nima at 7pm after a community health walk to the Korle-Bu Cardio Unit in the morning to be led by former Nigeria and Arsenal football legend Nwanko Kanu.
Mr Kanu is expected in Ghana with his team on Thursday the 26th of September, 2019 as guest of Afro Arab Group of Companies.
