(L-R) Yagazie Augustine, Head of Games and Sports, NYSC Orientation Camp, Lagos; Mrs. Kehinde Soniyi, most valuable player in the Volleyball competition held for female Corps members in the state; and Mr. Ubi Torsam-Ubi, Brand Manager-Coffee/Loya, Promasidor Nigeria Limited; at the finals of the contest held on Friday
National Youth Service Corps, Lagos Secretariat has commended Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell Milk, for consistently sponsoring the female volleyball competition among the youth corps members in the state.

The commendation was given as Platoon 1 won the gold medal in the tournament organised for the ‘Batch D’ of the corps members deployed to the Lagos Orientation Camp located at the Iyana-Ipaja area of the state.

Mrs Bose Akinrele, the Camp Director, who gave the commendation, described Promasidor as a pace setter that every other responsible corporate entity should emulate in terms of giving back to the society where businesses operate from.

She said the company has consistently created excitement for the Corps Members lodged at the Orientation Camp and that it has continued to make their stay there enjoyable. Apart from this, Mrs Akinrele said the tournament has helped to bring the sporting skills of the corps members to the fore.

Meanwhile, the Head of Platoon 1, Mrs. Kehinde Soniyi, who coincidentally emerged the most valuable player in the tournament, applauded the team spirit exhibited by the platoon 1 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. Mrs Soniyi however, identified the determination and selfless efforts shown by each player as the winning formula that gave the Platoon victory over their peers.

‘It surely will not be complete without giving due appreciation to Promasidor Nigeria Limited for providing the platform for all the Corps members in the state. The company has, no doubt, placed the NYSC Lagos Orientation Camp ahead of others in the country as sporting activities of this magnitude is rare in others’, Soniyi stated.

Commenting on the tournament, Mr. Ubi Torsam-Ubi, Brand Manager-Coffe/Loya, Promasidor, said the Volleyball contest is annually sponsored by the company to ignite the sporting skills of the corps members deployed to the state.

According to him, the tournament has, over the years, become what Corps members in the state look forward to; promising that Promasidor will not relent in its efforts towards developing the sporting skills of the youth in Nigeria.

Apart from Platoon 1 that led, Platoon 9 and 10 came second and third; respectively.
