Healthy Billionaires? It’s probably not what you think. But if you remember that health is wealth, you would agree with this group of young professionals in Cross River State of Nigeria.
The Healthy Billionaires Fitness Club in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Cross River State visited the Obudu Mountain Resort for a fitness challenge and facility tour where they set a record.
The tour was aimed at doing a walkathon from the bottom of the ranch to the top which is a total distance of 11km consisting of 22 sharp curves and 18 U-bend on a steady incline up a mountain road.
The tour was also a way of letting the world know that the resort is fully functional and showcase its beauty to the world especially for post Covid-19 domestic travels.
The Commissioner for Culture and Tourism Mr Eric Anderson while flagging off the Obudu Mountain Challenge stated that Cross River State is already in the post COVID era.
It will be recalled that due to the proactive measures taken by the Governor of Cross River State, Sir Ben Ayade that the state remains the only state in Nigeria that is COVID-19 free to date.
When borders finally open, the Obudu Mountain Resort will definitely be a good place to visit and is welcoming the entire world to an unforgettable magical experience.
So, why are they called billionaires? Asides the fact that the club is made up of successful entrepreneurs, politicians and professionals in various fields, it is important to know that health is your wealth and ours is valued at billions in dollars. That’s what William Archibong Jnr, the Chairman of the club, who is also the Senior special assistant to the Governor of Cross River on Communications, said.
