Ultimus Holdings doles out N50m to Sahel Military Games

The nation’s quest to give the rest of the continent the best ever Sahel Military Games received a tremendous boost with a princely donation of N50m (fifty million naira) by Ultimus Holdings in support of the games.

The financial support was received in Lagos when organizers of the games paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, founder and CEO of Ultimus Holdings.

Dr. Odii pledged total support to the games and vowed to do everything humanly possible to be a total success. ” I’m happy this was brought to my table. I’ve always loved to sponsor sporting activities and I will be supporting this with fifty million naira. Aside that, I won’t relent until I lift the game to an enviable height. Sports remain the key factor that unite the world and I give kudos to the organizers for tabling such an idea. As an entrepreneur, I’ve always loved to witness peace and love and the only way to achieve this is to venture into sport which will keep body and soul busy. I believe if there is peace in the land, more entrepreneurs and business moguls will love to invest more. This is just a tip of iceberg just watch out for more, ” he said   

 The visit lasted several minutes under the watch of Commodore Mohammed Wabi, deputy director Defence Information, Headquarter, Abuja.

Reacting to the warm gesture, Wabi honoured the host with a military chest batch which signifies peace. He further expressed gratitude and satisfaction towards the kind gesture received. 

” I’m very happy leading my team here. Getting such a financial boost in a period like this is not an easy task. The significance of the game is to bring peace and unity together among the military in the Sahel region. We believed once peace and unity is established with sports ideas, it will be difficult for external forces and enemies to come closer. This is the first time it will be hosted by Nigeria and we can’t wait to prove ourselves as giants of Africa,” he stated.

The 2021 edition of the African Military Sahel region games is slated for 23rd – 30th of October with eight African countries jostling for medals in several events.
