IFC spared nothing to ensure that the event which was kick-started in Ibadan and Abuja runs concurrently in Lagos, Akure and Ogun was one they will live to remember for a long time, as every child went home smiling, with tons of gifts courtesy Indomie.
While speaking at the grand finale held at the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos, Faith Joshua, the coordinator of the Club in Lagos, explained that the birthday party is a quarterly activity of the club intended to bring together members whose birthday fall within the same quarter, so as to celebrate with them.
According to Joshua, “the quarterly birthday party is designed to create an atmosphere of celebration for the children such that the children do not only have to wait for the May 27 Children’s Day to have fun, as this is one of the many ways of showing them, how much they are loved and appreciated for their continuous support and loyalty towards the brand over the years.”
Also speaking at the event, Tope Ashiwaju, the public relations manager, Dufil Prima Foods plc, disclosed that Indomie as the children’s favourite brand will continue to ensure that children are happy and celebrated, by creating an atmosphere of fun and excitement for them through the Fan Club.
