Speaking on the anniversary, the Chairman of the club Adewale Doherty noted that, apart from it entertainment value, the celebration is an opportunity to assess the efforts of his administration in developing the club.
“This administration will go down the history as the one that executed one of the biggest projects in this club. As at the time this club was formed, we didn’t have the number of members we have today. So, the expansion means that we now have limited parking space for members and guests. That was why we embarked on this car park project, which will benefit all members,” he said.
The chairman added that, “since we came onboard, the quality of food and services here have greatly improved; we will leave the club better than we met it,” he said.
