He noted: “Loya Milk has taken the responsibility of identifying and showcasing great talents. There are a number of such talents and we are going to groom them. I have penned down some of the names we are going to pay close attention to.

“I appreciate Loya Milk of Promasidor. It has shown sufficient commitment and I think other companies should be involved. Henceforth, we will involve the brand in our programmes. We will organise competitions they can sponsor. As part of this, we will be doing some routine marketing in partnership with the brand.”

It was the first time the Federal Capital Territory would host the three-year-old inter-school tournament. Yet the participation and organisation of the event were adjudged impressive by both Nigerians and foreigners who witnessed it.

A total of 92 students from 10 schools were registered for the six events, including 25 metres freestyle for boys and 25 metres freestyle for girls.

The other categories were 50 metres freestyle for boys, 50 metres freestyle for girls, 100 metres relay for boys and 100 metres relay for girls.

Marketing Manager, Promasidor, Biodun Ayodeji said the connection between Loya Milk and swimming is natural, a reason the brand is sponsoring the initiative. According to him, Loya Milk is fortified with 50% extra calcium to help consumers achieve optimum physical wellbeing and build stronger bones, tougher teeth and a healthy heart.

Ayodeji said: “The interest of Loya Milk in swimming resonates with its unique brand identity. Loya Milk is fortified with 50 per cent extra calcium, which makes it the choice of milk for individuals who desire to live healthily and remain physically fit. Swimming is a 360-degree sport, meaning that it requires a lot of energy and fitness. That is where the path of Loya Milk and swimming meets.”

Besides the secondary school swimming competition, Promasidor is engaging Nigerian youths through Cowbellpedia Mathematics TV Show and Promasidor Harness Your Dream, a career awareness workshop for secondary schools.
