Nigeria: Pamodzi Hails AIT's Nigeria 2009 Choice


Sports Marketing giants and Nigeria Football Federation Sole Marketers, Pamodzi International, has saluted the choice of African Independent Television (AIT) as the official broadcast partner of the Nigeria 2009 U-17 World Cup.

Pamodzi Chief Executive, Chief Mike Itemuagbor, said in a press statement that he was delighted that after several years of toiling for the growth and development of Nigerian football, Daar Communications, owners of AIT, was finally being recognized globally. He praised the Daar Communications Chairman, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, for his consistent support for Nigerian football and declared that he has no doubt that AIT will make an excellent broadcaster of the global youth World Cup.

"Daar Communications were the first to invest a huge sum of N250million on Nigerian football as broadcast support for the NFA then, when other related stations did not believe in Nigerian football and were busy investing in foreign leagues. They have received little or nothing as support from the authorities in Nigeria, yet they have acquired some of the best equipment for modern broadcasting in the world and it gladdens one's heart when bodies like FIFA, recognize such heroics like Daar is doing", he said.

Itemuagbor, called on other relevant organizations to emulate the good works of Daar Communications, instead of ambush marketing and desperation to reap where they did not sow. "The highest honour a station can receive in the world is to be recommended by FIFA as world class and FIFA Vice President, Jack Warner, has done exactly that, let's join Chief Dokpesi and the Daar team to celebrate this historic call to national and international duty", he said.
