Lagos – Over nine states will be participating in the forthcoming maiden Schools Sports Federation Golf Tournament (NSSFGT) bill Port Harcourt Rivers State between September 1 and 2, 2016.
Benibo Amieyeofori, Consultant on golf for the Federation revealed to Independent that the competition would be stiffer as the champions were expected to represent Nigeria in Ghana by November in the regional tournament.
The Federation he said was partnering with Sea Lord Golf Club, Pathfinder, Port Harcourt who are also the host club for the tournament.
However, he called on corporate organisations and individuals for sponsorship of the tournament as only collective effort can help develop the game.
Amieyeofori commended the sports authorities for giving a nod to develop sports through schools as the federation would endeavour to meet its expectations.
