“It is a project that is very dear to my heart, and I’m hoping that together we will be able to realise it. No matter how long it takes, I think at least we have to begin because I think it is a good idea and it inures to the ultimate benefit of all of us.”

He further called on the members of the Council who will not be directly involved in working towards the realisation of the facility, to give their ultimate support to those who will be tasked to undertake the project.
