It was an enjoyable event for the children, and they expressed delight for being exposed to a mini-marathon at their early stage, a situation that would spur interest in sports in future. Gifts such as school bags, writing materials and products were given as reward to winners, both in the boys and girls category.
While presenting the medals to the winners, the Marketing Manager, Promasidor Nigeria Limted, Mr. Abiodun Ayodeji said it was part of the company’s effort in celebrating children as it is a household of brands that caters for the needs of the family.
He stated that the initiative is aimed at reinforcing Promasidor’s love for the family, letting them know that it cares about them as an integral part of its activities.
This was demonstrated through samples of its products which were provided for consumption at various points for the children.
Elated for being the overall winner in the 4.4 kilometres race, Sulaiman David, a student of Wonder Gate College, Agbado, said the marathon was fun for him. “I am pleased that Promasidor has put this together for us to experience what a mini marathon is all about,” he stated.

He explained that the One Love Family Fest would be a three-series engagement platform, comprising the Children’s Day celebration held at Kanu Ndubuisi park; the Eid-El-Kabir Fest dubbed Meat and Greet, which will take place in Ilorin, Kano and Kaduna to celebrate with the Muslim faithful; and the Mingle and jingle for Christians during the Christmas celebration.
Commending Promasidor for the fun filled event, the Principal of Christ the Corner Stone International School, Ikeja, Oshalaiye Olukayode said it was a good interactive platform for children and urged the company to sustain the programme.

Attention has been drawn to the pathetic state of the Obizi Community secondary school in Ezinihite LGA, Imo state, Nigeria.
Students of the school are subjected to classes taught in dilapidated buildings or under trees. The buildings are in such a state of disrepair that when it rains, water gets into the classrooms.
To compound issues, the classrooms lack adequate furniture and some students are forced to stand while being taught.
The surroundings of the school are no better. Overgrown grasses can be seen creeping up the walls of the school building.
A staff of the institution who got in contact with LIB appealed for intervention from good-willed Nigerians. He revealed to LIB that there are no functioning libraries or classrooms. As a result, he said students are exposed to a number of risks including rape and abduction of students.
Appealing for help to rebuild the school up to standard, the staff told LIB: “We are appealing to good Nigerians to come and assist us rebuild this school and bring back standard education to the poor community.”
Below are photos of the school.
