Peak To Donate World Class, Wheel Chair Accessible Bus For Para- Powerlifting Tourney

The stage is now set for the widely publicized Lagos 2019 International Para-powerlifting Competition billed to commence in the next few weeks, as one of the major sponsors, Friesland Campina, makers of the Peak milk brand, has finalised plans to donate a world class bus for the competition.
According to Maureen Ifada, Marketing Manager Peak, the donation of a wheel chair accessible van, the first of its kind in Africa, with automated lifts and other features to ensure safety of the Para-powerlifting athletes, is part of a wide range of sponsorship packages provided by the Peak brand to boost the productivity of Para-powerlifting athletes, who in recent years, have brought glory to the country and the continent in major international competitions, including the Paralympic Games.
“We remain committed to assisting the Para-powerlifting athletes in whatever way we can as a brand. We have inspired Nigerians with their Unstoppable story, especially at the Paralympics, and recently we provided an ultra modern wheelchair accessible gym at the National Stadium, Lagos, which was completely renovated for the first time since 1972,” Ifada said.
One of the major highpoints leading to the International Para-powerlifting Competition, which will be staged for the first time in Nigeria, will be a media event holding today at the Oriental Hotel, Lekki, Lagos.
According to the President of the Nigeria Para-powerlifting Federation, Queen Obuh, the event, organized by the Main Organizing Committee (MOC), is to officially announce the opening ceremony of the competition, which will attract Para-powerlifting athletes from all over the world.
