Dr. Stella C. Okoli (OON) Supports F3TC

The distinguished Dr. Stella C. Okoli (OON) has delivered on her pledge to support the F3TC. The founder and CEO of Emzor Pharmaceuticals Industries Limited had promised material support earlier in the month for the Table Tennis project.

Her financial donation will now fund the production of jerseys, the empowerment session on drug abuse and doping; and meals for the four day Championship.

Dr. Okoli also donated goody bags, exercise books, pens, and motivational pamphlets to participating girls. This kind gesture on the eve of the F3TC Press Conference is a major boost in organising the first of its kind competition in Oyo State.

The F3TC team is proud of Dr. Okoli’s unalloyed support for the growth and development of the girl-child in Nigeria through sports.
