Premium Trust Bank has been announced as the official banking partner of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria, AFN.
Nilayo Sports Management Limited, marketing consultants of the AFN, in a statement Monday, announced the partnership.
Mr. Ebidowei Oweifie, Chief Operating Officer, Nilayo Sports Management Limited said “We are pleased to announce Premium Trust Bank as the official banking partner of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria.
“Premium Trust Bank has demonstrated dedication to the growth and development of Athletics in the country, as a forward thinking and fast growing brand, we are very confident that this is a collaboration that will transform athletics in Nigeria.”
Oweifie added that the deal was concluded five weeks ago, however Nilayo hesitated to make the announcement to ensure that there is enough concentration on the Athletics events happening in Oregon, Birmingham and Cali as they are landmark events for Nigerian athletes.
AFN President, Hon. Tonobok Okowa added that “Athletics in Nigeria is evolving, we are churning out world class athletes who are determined to push beyond the boundaries and set new standards, having a bank like Premium Trust on board as the banking partner of AFN displays the commitment of the bank to Nigerian athletes, this partnership will also be very beneficial to all athletes as it is a way of securing their financial future.”
