Yudala, Access, Airtel plan wellness CSR
CONCERNED by a growing spate of ailments associated with physical inactivity among Nigerians and the spiraling unemployment rate in the country, Yudala, Nigeria’s first true composite online and offline retail chain supported by Access Bank and Airtel is set to host another edition of Gyming with the Stars which will feature celebrities such as renowned comedian Akpororo, superstar artistes Naeto C, Iyanya, Ms. Uru Ekeh, among others at the Police College Field, Ikeja on November 7th.
Yudala had launched the debut edition of Gyming with the Stars at the National Stadium, Surulere on October 17th – a well-attended event which saw thousands of Nigerians turn out in their numbers to work out with Iyanya, Naeto C and ace comedian Ali Baba. The event also featured talks on healthy living and wealth creation.
Chief Executive Officer, Yudala Nigeria, Dave Ibelegbu, affirmed that the event is a classic combination of fitness, wellness and entrepreneurship accompanied with great entertainment to improve the quality of life of Nigerians. He further disclosed that through the YUBOSS scheme, which will be launched officially this month, Yudala plans to create millions of jobs for Nigerians at no cost to them.
Through this event, we are promoting a positive lifestyle that keeps diseases away by offering Nigerians from all walks of life a chance to work out with some of their favourite celebrities. The message to Nigerians is – Live Healthier, Live Longer through Yudala.
Most importantly, Yudala is passionate about supporting the Federal Government’s effort in generating creative employment for our youth through YUBOSS. Participants at the venue can sign up to join YUBOSS which offers a zero investment platform to create wealth,” he stated.
YUBOSS is an entrepreneurship scheme set up by Yudala and supported by Access Bank and Airtel to build a league of emerging entrepreneurs and generate creative employment for millions of Nigerians. Members are entitled to attractive commissions and a wide range of benefits including business mentorship sessions, with exceptional performers progressing through the multi-levels to ultimately become part-owners of a Yudala franchise store.
The YUBOSS scheme is targeted at smart Nigerians: undergraduates, post-graduate students, unemployed and under-employed individuals, housewives etc. who have the drive and ambition to earn money and be their own bosses.
In addition to the work-out and fitness sessions with the celebrities, Saturday’s event at Ikeja will feature an auction sales on a wide range of genuine products from the biggest brands: Smart Phones, Devices and Gadgets, A-Z of IT Products, Consumer Electronics, Lifestyle Goods and much more. Visitors to the company’s website can also sign up for the event and qualify for a raffle draw to win some mouth-watering gifts, courtesy of Yudala and Airtel.
With its headquarters in Nigeria, Yudala which means Best wishes, Peace of mind and Prosperity has carved a niche for itself by being the first organization to combine a real-time online shopping platform with offline stores located in major cities across the country, with further expansion into other major African capitals.
