Besides the detailed schedule of the summer Olympics, the brochure is expected to document in details the history of Nigeria’s participation and an overview of the performances at all events in which Nigeria has featured since 1952 to date. The rich contents, including details of sponsorships and the broad spectrum of festivities scheduled by the host city to complement the games are also presented to share an insight into how Nigeria could organize a global event of that magnitude and complexity in the near future.

NOC President, Engr. Sani M. Ndanusa said: “With Team Nigeria having trained hard and prepared well for London 2012, we are pressing forward with renewed energy and determination to succeed. Now and again, our efforts and the accruing success should be celebrated and documented for posterity. I look forward to the publication of the commemorative brochure.”
Honourable Tunde Popoola, the Secretary General of NOC noted: “Aside producing a booklet that highlights the major events scheduling and festivities of London 2012, it is expedient that Nigeria presents a befitting publication showcasing our beauty and brilliance. The London 2012 commemorative brochure published by NOC raises the standards yet again.”
Shola Ogunseitan, project manager for First Call Media, Design and Publishing Ltd, said: “It’s exciting and a great privilege to have to work on this project which aims to celebrate Team Nigeria and our dear country.
