The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has commended the efforts of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell milk, Loya Milk, Top tea and other food products, for its sponsorship of the Cowbell Football Academy (CFA).

The CFA is an initiative aimed at developing sports in the country by creating an enabling platform for children and youths to express themselves through sports, academics and extra-curricular activities thereby adding to the nation’s human capital development.

Seyi Akinwumi, NFF first vice president, who gave the commendation at the grand finale of the 2016 Summer Camp at the National Stadium, Lagos recently, said that such initiative as CFA would greatly contribute to football development in Nigeria.

According to him, while speaking on CFA, “apart from catching the young school children and schooling them on football, the NFF has also realized they are being taught discipline, interpersonal and communication skills which help them excel in any endeavor.”

He commended Promasidor for their diverse CSR initiatives that greatly impact Nigerian children and youths particularly in the areas of sports and academics.

Akinwunmi reiterated the need for the private sector to join hands as a team and develop sports in the nation, adding that the government cannot do it alone.

The rector of CFA, Godwin Dudu-Orumen, expressed gratitude to Promasidor for sponsoring the initiative, which has ensured the realisation of the academy’s objective of improving and developing sports in the country.
