A medical practitioner, Dr Zubair Abdullahi has advised Nigerians to take the issue of their personal health seriously as Mouka, the nation’s leading mattress manufacturing company staged a health walk around Ikeja, Lagos on Friday, to sensitize its staff and Nigerians on well-being as part of activities marking its 60th anniversary in Nigeria.

He listed other impediments to good health to include poor personal hygiene and sanitation; improper diet, drinking unsafe water and abuse of alcohol among others.

While addressing the staff, Mr. Raymond Murphy, Mouka’s Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, maintained that the importance of health and good living cannot be over-emphasized, adding that a healthy work force is a valuable asset to any company.

Ahead of the 60th anniversary, which started last week, Mouka was endorsed by the Nigeria Association of Orthopaedic Manual Therapists (NAOMT) .

The endorsement comes on the back of consistency in quality delivery and innovative mattress production, which have characterized the brand’s health asset in Nigeria.

National President of the association, Dr. Onigbinde Ayodele, described the endorsement of Mouka as an offshoot of a detailed assessment of the brand’s portfolio. “Good sleep in the beginning of good health…and good sleep is a function of good sleeping platform. All these are vital to productivity at home and at work,” he said.

The foundation for Mouka was laid 60 years ago in the historic city of Kano when the scion of the Faiz Moukarim family started the Moukarim Metalwood factory to manufacture furniture and iron beds.

Since then, Mouka has gone into manufacturing of foam and spring mattresses, as well as other bedding products at its three production facilities across Nigeria.

How Nigeria Can Attain Sustainable and Inclusive Growth – Dangote

Billionaire businessman Aliko Dangote has identified what Nigeria needs to drive sustainable and inclusive growth.

Dangote, who is Africa’s richest man, said this via a poat on his twitter handle on Friday.

He said, “Nigeria has one of the largest domestic markets with a population of over 200 million people.

“We need to drive sustainable and inclusive growth through industrialization, economic diversification and import substitution, creating jobs and driving economic prosperity.”

Dangote had on Wednesday aired his views about the Nigerian economy at a Roundtable session with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, with the theme “Going for Growth 2.0.”

He said when he read that the Nigerian Customs collected N1.35trn import duties last year, it means the economy isn’t working.

“If the economy is working, the Customs shouldn’t collect that much money, it is the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) that should,” he said.
