Minister lauds Peak Milk for renovating gym

Solomon Dalung, Minister of Youth and Sport.

Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Mr. Solomon Dalung, has commended Peak Milk for renovating the paralympians’ power-lifting gym in Lagos.

The Minister gave the commendation during the handover ceremony of the renovated gym held at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

He stated that in order for sports to grow in the country, there is the need for public private partnership, adding that other corporate firms should emulate FrieslandCampina WAMCO by partnering with government at all levels to support sports development in the country. 

“The newly renovated gym, which is now of world-class standard, would further inspire athletes, especially our Para-Powerlifting Team to continue to push the limits of excellence by winning more laurels for Nigeria,” Dalung said.

Managing Director, FrieslandCampina WAMCO, Mr. Ben Langat, said the brand took up the challenge to renovate the stadium so as to use the story of the paralympians to inspire and motivate other Nigerians across all walks of life.

According to him, “We were inspired by the achievement of the paralympians whose willpower, drive and self-motivation to win against all odds has seen them shine despite the obsolete and non-functional gym equipment and facilities they had to use in the past. They have shown us all that regardless of whatever challenges we face, with determination, we can always reach for our peak.”

Langat charged the Para-Powerlifting Team, which is currently ranked No. 1 in the world, to make good use of the newly installed, world class gym equipment and continuously make the country proud through several record breaking achievements.

Also speaking, Head Coach of Nigeria’s Para-Powerlifting Team, Feyisetan Are, commended Peak Milk for coming to the aid of the athletes by transforming the National Stadium gym into a world-class facility and for also supporting the team with monthly supply of milk products, adding, “This would definitely go a long way to enhance our training process and spur us to more success.”
