According to the team leader at Media Industries Concept, Mr. Precious Eze, the TV programme keys into the worldwide celebration of Mothers’ Day, which is set aside to recognise and appreciate mothers for their invaluable contributions to the upkeep of the family and the society. He explained: “It is a day for honouring mothers, celebrated in many places around the world. It’s a time when we acknowledge our mothers’ contributions to our lives and pay tribute to them.”
This year, Olympic Milk Nigeria is providing a bigger platform through sponsorship to advance issues that concern mothers. The theme is “Mothers: Veritable Tools for National Development.”

The Mother’s Day TV Show is a one-hour talk-programme that will allow the audience dissect issues, and seek solutions to the challenges facing mothers, while also examining the scourge of cancer. A mother-survivor will feature in the show to testify to how she made it. Olympic Milk has consistently demonstrated its support for mothers through programmes such as the Olympic Milk August Meeting Show in the south-eastern part of Nigeria and now, the Mothers’ Day TV Show.
