Cadbury Nigeria Plc, manufacturers of TomTom, has congratulated the Super Eagles on the team’s qualification for the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament, which will take place in Cameroon.

In a statement, the Company’s Corporate and Government Affairs Director for West Africa, Mr. Bala Yesufu said the Super Eagles had made Nigerians proud by securing the AFCON 2019 ticket over the weekend. Yesufu assured that TomTom, the ‘Official Candy of the Super Eagles,’ would be with the team all the way to Cameroun.

TomTom, an ardent supporter of the Super Eagles, gave out free candies to all the fans in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, last month, during the match between the Super Eagles and the Mediterranean Knights of Libya. Nigeria won the match 4-0.

Yesufu said: “We are excited that Nigeria will be competing again in AFCON after missing out on two successive editions. The Super Eagles have shown strength of character, resilience, and tactical discipline throughout the qualifiers. We have no doubt that this youthful team will make us proud in Cameroon.”

Meanwhile, TomTom has emerged winner of the ‘Best Digital Campaign in Nigeria,’ at the Advertisers Association of Nigeria (ADVAN) award, which held over the weekend in Lagos. Bala attributed this achievement to the holistic exploitation of TomTom as the Official Candy of the Super Eagles, which was executed across major media platforms including Digital.
