Golfers had fun at the Lakowe Lakes, Lekki–Epe, Lagos during the maiden MTN Golf Championship.

Non-golfers were not left out as they were taught the rudiments of the game. They competed among themselves for honours in the Longest Drive, Nearest to the Pin, Bunker shot and Approach shot categories.

The one-day Championship featured captains of industrieas, technocrats and administrators such as Senior Country Manager, PWC, Uyi Akpata; Managing Director, Stern & Kay Consulting Limited, Kate Iketubosin; Executive Director, PBB, Stanbic IBTC Bank Plc, Obinnia Abajue, and former captain of the Ikoyi Club Golf section, Demola Mumuney, among other distinguished personalities.

Speaking at the event, Chief Executive Officer, MTN Nigeria, Mike Ikpoki, reiterated the company’s unwavering commitment to the development of the game of golf in Nigeria.

According to him, “Our sponsorship of golf is not just a unique opportunity to connect our stakeholders but to reinforce our role as an enabler of socio-economic development across several fronts in Nigeria.

“It is in furtherance of these goals that we created a bouquet of innovative products and value-adding services.

“These services are designed to empower business men, executives and leaders to achieve new heights in their individual and business aspirations,” he said.
