Emzor Pharmaceuticals, Nigeria’s leading manufacturers and distributors of Pharmaceutical products has upheld its promise of providing support to the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) by donating products worth millions of naira to the football ruling body.
The donation was part of the partnership agreement that has seen the Pharmaceutical giant act as an integral part of the football body by providing support to athletes and connecting football lovers in the country.
The donation by Emzor Pharmaceuticals is in line with the company’s commitment to further push its goal of providing unlimited wellness to everyone.
It would be recalled that Emzor had played a major role in supporting the Super Eagles and Falcons, especially in the aspect of health and wellbeing by providing the necessary analgesics and products to players as well as the governing body.
Speaking at the product presentation in Abuja, Emzor Pharmaceuticals business development manager, Benjamin Udebuani, expressed the brand’s commitment to strengthening the partnership with the federation and upholding every agreement to ensure that all stakeholders were excited.
According to him, “This is a partnership that we are really proud of and we are happy to see this continue. The relationship has been incredibly good over the past few years and we have had the privilege to serve in a relevant capacity with the football federation. Emzor Pharmaceuticals will continue to ensure the availability of unlimited wellness to Nigerians by supporting football in the country.”
The partnership, which saw Emzor Pharmaceuticals being recognised as the official analgesics of the Super Eagles of Nigeria has spanned a period of over six years, which led to the emergence of the brand’s paracetamol as the preferred option for analgesics amongst Nigerian footballers. The sponsorship partnership also extends to the six national teams, including the Super Falcons, Nigeria’s female football team, with a strategic partnership with Asisat Osoala, as Brand Ambassador.
Reacting at the presentation, the President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, commended Emzor’s efforts in ensuring that the players are in good shape to give in their best always. He said “We are happy that they have been our partners for over 6 years now and we always count on their support. Emzor Paracetamol is a household name in Nigeria that has been serving Nigerians for a long time. We are glad about its consistency, and their products to the team over the years have helped us maintain good health and encouraged us to put our best foot forward.”
Emzor Pharmaceuticals has the one of the largest portfolio OTC (Over The Counter) Medicines, POM (Prescription Only Medicine) as well as medical supplies, vaccines, consumables, and equipment. The brand has over the years invested in Nigeria’s health sector with excellent services through Emzor Vaccines, Zolon Healthcare and Emzor Hesco subsidiaries.
