Ogun Governor hosts, hails Reckitt Benckiser on World Health Day

Reckitt Benckiser, RB, world’s leading consumer health and hygiene Company has been commended by Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State for its commitment to a clean and healthy Nigeria that will boost the capacity and productivity of the citizens
The governor spoke when Mr. Ataur Rashid Safdar, RB’s Senior Vice President for Africa led RB’s delegation on a courtesy visit to him at his office last Friday, as part of activities marking the World Health Day.

Governor Amosun also reiterated his government’s commitment to providing a safer environment that will guarantee robust and healthier lifestyle for Nigerians.  He equally thanked the RB delegation for investing in Ogun state as Nigeria remains the epicenter for developing markets in Western Africa.

In his remarks, Sadfar explained that RB’s Vision for Nigeria is where people are healthier and live better. He noted that Ogun State is very critical to the nation’s development because of its investment friendly climate and policies, which he said can propel the development of the state and the nation at large.

Sadfar also informed the governor that the company will later in the year, commission a world class redistribution warehouse as part of the new marketing strategy to distribute their products across Nigeria and West Africa.

Also, speaking on the occasion, Rahul Murgai, Managing Director, RB, West Africa, stated that the company has been in the country for over five decades and described Nigeria as one of the most important growth markets and the reference point for other African business development growth strategies.

Murgai maintained that celebrating the 2017 World Health Day in Ogun State is paramount to the company because the state remains the gateway to the nation and the West African sub-region.

He reinforced the company’s commitment to Ogun state, where RB has invested in a state of the art manufacturing facility and is now building a world class warehouse that will increase the ability to service markets and create opportunities for employment in the state that will help further the economy.

In addition to manufacturing investments in Ogun state, RB through its ‘Clean Naija’ program aims to increase the intensity of education and awareness building in the state among mothers and school children in Ogun state to drive a culture of good health and hygiene.

Chairman of the Company, Chief Olu Falomo also thanked the governor for the warm reception and commended the giant strides recorded by his administration in the last six years.

RB, with a heritage in Nigeria spanning over 53 years has a strong portfolio of global brands in health, hygiene and home solutions such as Dettol, Nurofen, Strepsils, Gaviscon, Durex, Dettol, Harpic, Mortein, and  Air Wick.
