Hajia Hafsat Abubakar, President, Nigerian Air Force Officers’ Wives Association (NAFOWA), on Tuesday inaugurated  NAFOWA Little Angel’s Hall in Makurdi.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that NAFOWA Little Angels School, Nigeria Air Force (NAF) Base, Makurdi is owned by NAFOWA, Tactical Air Command, Makurdi chapter.

At the inaugural ceremony, Hajia Hafsat Abubakar, wife of the Chief of Air Staff and NAFOWA President, said that the school was one of the hallmark ventures of the association.

Abubakar said that one of the major objectives of the association was to ensure that children acquired quality education in a safe and secured environment at affordable prices.

She said that the project was constructed during the most difficult time when COVID-19 pandemic had ravaged the economy and other aspects of human life.

NAFOWA Little Angels is one of the hallmark ventures of the association where we impact knowledge on little children, from creche to primary six, in a safe and secure environment with emphasis on quality education at an affordable price.

“Our schools are all over the country, from Maiduguri to Lagos. They are known to have excellent facilities comparable to renowned private schools in their areas.

“We are known for producing well rounded children who are academically and morally sound,” she said.

Abubakar also said that NAFOWA was a non-governmental organisation  focused on carrying out intiatives and programmes that build capacity, especially in the areas of human development.

She said that the association also strive to give valuable education to women, widows, children and youths.

Earlier, Mrs Olakunbi Phillip, Chairperson, NAFOWA, Tactical Air Command, Nigeria Air Force Base, Makurdi chapter, had said that quality education in a conducive environment was crucial to building a good foundation for the child.

Philip said that the hall was built to improve the learning environment of the children at NAFOWA Little Angels School, Makurdi.

She said that the old school hall would be partitioned into two classrooms to accommodate more children, especially considering the social distancing regulation to be observed when schools resume.

“It is important to note that quality education in a conducive environment and infrastructural development for a good foundation and growth of the children remains the priority of our national president.

“This hall was built to provide essential and conducive environment to accommodate the growing number of children who require such facility for school assembly, speech and prize giving day and PTA meetings.

“It will also be useful for other recreational activities the children require for proper growth and development,’’ she said.

Philip said that the hall was built within the first three months of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, adding that the association was determined to improve the wellbeing of members, children and youths.
