Why Goldberg unveiled its new identity, ‘Your Excellency’ in Lagos



The determination by Nigerian Breweries Plc to further strengthen the affinity of Goldberg Lager Beer with consumers in the South West has been identified as the basis upon which the brand’s new credential campaign was activated in Lagos and Ibadan.  The brand recently unveiled its new identity in a credential campaign named: ‘Your Excellency’.

Patrick Olowokere, Corporate Communications/Brand PR Manager, Nigerian Breweries Plc said the activation could not have been held at any other place because Goldberg is the number one brand in the South West region. “Your Excellency could not have commenced its journey from any other place apart from the South West of Nigeria where it is the favourite beer brand of the people”, he stated.

Due to the brand’s cultural affinity with the people in South West Nigeria and the loyalty of consumers there, Olowokere said the unveiling was held at the two locations tostrengthen the bond that has developed over the years between consumers in the South-West and Goldberg lager beer.

According to him, the people of the Southwest and Goldberg lager beer also share a common bond – respect for traditional values and institutions. That is why the brand has thrown its weight behind festivals like Ojude Oba in Ogun State; Udiroko in Ekiti State and the Osun-Osogbo in Osun State, festivals that define and capture the essence of the cultural ethos of the people.

Corroborating him, Emmanuel Agu, Portfolio Manager, Mainstream Lager and Stout Brands, Nigerian Breweries Plc said as a brand that demonstrates its high regards for the culture and traditions of its target consumers, Goldberg is a befitting beer that deserves the befitting title: “Your Excellency”. “No other beer brand matches Goldberg’s respect for the people’s culture. Goldberg has demonstrated that it occupies a class of its own in adding value to the way of life of the people”, he stated.

The activation of the campaign attracted a large turnout of consumers as well as the company’s distributors in Lagos and Ibadan. The events featured colourful cultural performances as well as an appearance by wave making Lil Kesh in Lagos and the popular Small Doctor in Ibadan.

Akpabio got N300m fence construction contract from NDDC - Senator Peter Nwaoboshi


Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, June 3, Senator Nwaoboshi said the contracts were fully paid for but there was nothing to show for it.


He said:


“Findings show that while there was no physical evidence of implementation of these projects, checks show contracts were awarded and fully paid for.

“Such practices have turned the region to sites of abandoned projects.”


This is coming after Akpabio said he would not allow the NDDC to be raped under his watch. A few days ago, the former Governor of Akwa Ibom state raised an alarm about NDDC abandoned projects and the agency being “turned to an ATM” by politicians.

Akpabio said;


“We have also had a lot of political interference, people have not allowed NDDC to work as it ought to, people coming with ideas not to move the region forward but to move their pockets forward. It has always been so… I think people were treating the place as an ATM, where you just walk in there to go and pluck money and go away, I don’t think they were looking at it as an interventionist agency.”
