Former Super Eagles stars Peter Rufai and Mutiu Adepoju were the star attractions at the fitness and healthy living event sponsored by Procter & Gamble at the Fun Factory, Lekki, Lagos, recently.
The one-day event had families engaging in games and outdoor activities, aimed at fostering active lifestyles in Nigerian homes.
The occasion had World Cup trivia games, mini tournaments, health talks and fitness drills administered by the World Cup veterans.
Both stars used the event tagged Family Funfair to mark Nigeria’s 20-year participation at the World Cup.
The Brand Communications Manager, Procter & Gamble, Ayotomiwa Ajewole, said, the company is focused on healthy and active living especially during the World Cup season.
“As suppliers of family consumer products, we encourage healthy lifestyles through our products and activities. The Family Funfair is our way of practicing what we preach,” he said.
Rufai described the effort made by Procter & Gamble as commendable.
“This funfair brings to mind the fun times I had while with the national team and the joy every win brought us. It also reminds me that keeping fit is the first step to winning and any organisation that promotes this way of life amongst Nigerians should be applauded.”
Project Manager of the event, Dare Amokeodo, said, “We are glad and excited about this project; it is a day for sports, health and general fitness.”
