The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Ministry of Interior are collaborating on an initiative aimed at using football to educate, build skills, and develop leadership qualities among young women in correctional centres nationwide.

This effort is part of the Confederation of African Football's "Football for Change" project, according to The Punch.

A delegation from the NFF, led by President Ibrahim Gusau, presented the initiative to the Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, on Tuesday

The Minister of Interior, Tunji-Ojo, was enthusiastic about the project and applauded the NFF’s initiative.

I am hugely impressed by this presentation, which shows clearly that the NFF is aware of its responsibilities to the community, aside from preparing our national teams for matches and tournaments. The reason why there is always an increase in the number of people in correctional centres is that when they are released, they have nowhere to go other than the place from which they ended up in the centre. I see this project as filling that gap for them, giving them hope, and showing them how to bring that hope to reality.”
