Ribeira Grande Aug 25 (Inforpress) – The Sports Minister stated that the Tarrafal Stadium is a dream of generations and it is only possible to realize it, because the Government has taken “effective steps” in the last four years.
Fernando Elísio Freire, who was speaking this Monday, 24th, during the presentation of the construction project for the Tarrafal sport field, in Santo Antão, explained that they started with a sport centre and then moved to the Municipal Stadium of Tarrafal.
“There was even pressure for the stadium to come first than the centre, but in consultation with the City Hall of Ribeira Grande, we kept our course and today we have the proof that we were right and it is possible to do the two infrastructures in a phased manner, well thought out and systematized”, he pointed out.
According to the government official, only in this way Ribeira Grande will have quality infrastructures that, eventually, do not exist in most part of Cabo Verde, stressing that there are conditions to have other “ambitions, other flights and other dreams”.
In turn, the Mayor of Ribeira Grande (CMRG), Orlando Delgado, defended that the Municipal Stadium of Tarrafal was always a “big dream for everyone”.
