“During this period, we trained school teachers, the Pepsodent Brush/Day, the Night School Children campaigns, free distribution of Pepsodent, free distribution of Pepsodent toothpaste and Close-up toothbrushes to the school children.”
Meanwhile, the Unilever Regional Sales Manager, Middle Belt, Mr. David Ebah, said the company is determined to reach 100 million people by the year 2020.
