The commendation was given as Platoon 8 won the gold medal in the tournament organised for the 2015 ‘Batch A’ corps members deployed to Lagos. The competition took place at the state NYSC Orientation Camp, Iyana Ipaja.

State Director of the NYSC, Cyril Akhanemhe, who gave the commendation, described Promasidor as a pacesetter every other corporate entity should emulate in terms of giving back to the society where it does businesses.

He said the company has consistently created excitement for the corps members at the orientation camp and that it has continued to make their stay enjoyable. Apart from this, Akhanemhe said the tournament has helped to bring the sporting skills of the corps members to the fore.

Similarly, Major Shehu A. Bashir, the Camp Commandant thumps up Promasidor for sponsoring the tournament.

“Promasidor has tried very well to organise the competition. The company encourages the youth to put in more effort towards their physical fitness most especially in the NYSC Orientation Camp and in the nation, at large.”

Pleased with the performance of her team players, the Captain of Platoon 8, Miss Rayen Ogbogu, applauded the team spirit exhibited by her players throughout the various stages of the competition.

She disclosed that none of her players ever thought the Platoon could go so far as they had limited time to form the team and then prepared for the contest. Ogbogu however, identified the determination and selfless efforts shown by each player as the winning formula that gave the Platoon victory over their peers.
