A former member of the Professional Golfers Association of Nigeria, Sir Lucky Omolua, has been named Board of Trustee (BoT) member of the IBB International Golf and country Club, Abuja.

Omolua, the Chairman of Pinnacle Communications Limited, was appointed by the Federal Government to the board in one of the appointments made recently.

Present Director of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA), Festus Makelemi, said that it was a welcome development and speaks well for the image of the association.

“There is no better endorsement than that for the PGA, for someone who has been our member to rise to such position in the game. We have a lot of honourable people in the PGA and Lucky I must say has distinguished himself.”

Other golfers appointed into the Board are former Health Minister, Dr Tim Menakaya, and former Military Governor of Katsina State, Col John Yohana Madaki (rtd).

Meanwhile, Life President of the PGA, Gen. Ibrahim Bata Haruna, was also appointed as the new Chairman of the board of trustees. Haruna replaces Gen. Domkat Bali (rtd).

Completing the list of appointees are Chief Olawale Kuye, Chief Philip Asiodu, King Alfred Diete Spiff, Sen. John Shagaya, Brig. Gen. Mobolaji Johnson (rtd) and Ambassador Babagana Kingibe.

Their membership of the BoT reflects the country’s geo- political diversity and their contributions to the growth of the game.
