Some comments made by stakeholders:
Our Motive is Sharing love and transforming lives. Don’t be confused by the word club, PLACY will be a source of inspiration, quality education, rehabilitation, behavioral modification, sound health and wealth for large number of Kwarans if not all Kwarans. It’s only a matter of time, focus, dilligence and idedication. We will realize our vision.
It is a fact that Kwara is due for significant development! We are playing our roles to make this a reality. So far you have a functional brain, there is nothing you can’t achieve in this world. Your way of life and the values you uphold will influence the functioning of your brain.
Understanding this will make you gain important insights and behave only in ways that improve your wellbeing and enhance your personal development.

When you feel very bad about a situation, learn to take a deep breath to gain control over your situation. You will only make a difference when you consciously accept you and others are uniquely different. AbdulQuadir Labaika, PLACY Club, Initiative.

PLACY is a great Initiative. Let me say, once it’s PLACY, let’s place it Everywhere. PLACY is going places. We can make Kwara and then Nigeria better if we all work together. Toheeb, Founder, SADAF.
I see PLACY club to be a very wonderful place (initiative, it implies), I like to be a member of PLACY club and I am happy to be a presenter here today. I have learned many things here today, and it’s fun. I have learned to not be shy when you want to present something while people are many there….. Fareedah Uthman.

It is important to serve the humanity that if our existence does not solve all the problems, the legacy we leave behind will facilitate the growth of the society. We need more community development programs like PLACY to develop Kwara state….and surely we can find solutions to the problems when we work together….Lawal
