Zenith Bank has joined the collection of corporate sponsors for the hosting of the Africa Youth Athletics Championships otherwise known as AYAC Warri 2013 with N20m.
''It is part of our contribution to sports development in Nigeria,'' Managing Director of the Bank, Godwin Emiefilie, told Amaju Pinnick, the chairman of the Local Organizing Committee for AYAC.
''Zenith Bank has been tremendous in trying to develop the Nigerian youth through sports and share the vision of Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan in the area of sports,'' Amaju said while thanking Emiefilie for his contribution.
Joe Penawou of First Marine Engineering Services Limited also parted with N10m as part of his company's sponsorship of the African championship. His company will also supply juice drinks to the over 450 athletes and 200 officials who will gather at the Warri Township Stadium from March 27 to 31.
