People in Remo, which is in Ogun State, need toilets. David Olatukunbo Alaba, who plays for Real Madrid, hears their prayers.
David Olatukunbo Alaba, an Austrian football player, gave toilets to the people of Remo in Ogun State, Nigeria.
Alaba was born in Vienna, Austria, to parents who were from Nigeria, but he is proud of his roots.
The 30-year-old who plays for the top team in La Liga, Real Madrid, has always said he is Nigerian.
Alaba wanted to give back to Nigeria, so his foundation reportedly spent 13.3 million nairas to build an ultra-modern Biodegradable Toilet Facility.
Alaba builds toilets in the state of Remo Ogun.
On September 17, the toilet building was opened at Kara Market in Ogere Remo, Ogun State.
The goal of Alaba’s toilet project is to help President Muhammadu Buhari’s government stop people from defecating in the open.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who is the head of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, talked about Alaba’s investment in toilets in Remo, Ogun State, where his parents are from.
She said in a statement posted on her official social media sites, “A big thank you to the David Alaba Foundation for donating the building at Kara Market in Ogere Remo, Ogun State, to help FGN stop people from defecating in the open. David is also making plans for a place to teach football in Nigeria.”
Alaba made a name for himself playing for a team in the German Bundesliga. He was a key part of Real Madrid’s success last season when they won both La Liga and the Champions League.
Alaba is so versatile that he can play in both midfield and defense. He will play again for Real Madrid when they play their city rivals Atletico Madrid at the Wand Metropolitano on September 18, 2022.
