Nigeria Golf Federation advises children to be involved in Golf

The President of the Nigeria Golf Federation, Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, has urged children to use the Awa Ibraheem Junior Open Golf Championship to improve their prospects in both sports and education.

Speaking on Sunday at the competition’s 10th presentation event at the Ikeja Golf Club in Lagos, Runsewe praised Dr. Awa Ibraheem for his vision in using golf to shape the future of Nigerian kids.

Runsewe described the competition, as the enabling environment created for the kids to thrive.

He said, “Alhaji Awa Ibraheem is a detribalised Nigerian who has seen why we need to build in the future of this great country.

“The children are the future of this great country; the President, senators, representatives and ministers of the country tomorrow are among these children, hence, if we are wishing the best for this great country, we must connect with the children.

“Sometime ago I was in New York trying to bring Tiger Woods to Nigeria, I saw him doing what Alhaji Awa Ibraheem is doing today in Nigeria.

“For 11 years this great patriot of Nigeria has been celebrating his birthday by touching the lives of young golfers by developing a new strategy to bringing new dynamism to golf.”

The winners received worth N300,000, N200,000, and N150,000 to the first, second, and thirdplace winners, respectively, were the event’s highlights.
