Alli wins 10th DOAMF golf tournament
Bayo Alli at the weekend beat the field to win the men’s category of the 10th Daniel Ogechi Akujobi Memorial Foundation (DOAMF) annual charity golf tournament at the Ikoyi Club 1938.
The DOAMF foundation is a charity organisation established in 2007 in memory of Master Daniel Akujobi, who died from injuries he sustained in an accident along Lagos-Ibadan expressway in 2005.
Describing his victory in the category as an honour in memory of Daniel, Alli said, “Winning feels good but doing it for a noble course is even more fulfilling. I commend the consistency of the organisers.
“This foundation has made it possible for us to gather here and play for a noble course that has impacted a lot of lives.
“The annual report every year shows that this is a worthy course, kudos to the organisers.”
178 amateur golf players featured in the DOAMF competition, which the founder and father to Daniel junior, said, “is mainly focused on education, because Daniel died in pursuit of that. This foundation is also concerned about providing efficient health care system for accident victims.
“We know the impact of losing a loved one and we wouldn’t want that for anyone so we as a foundation we do what we can to ensure that other families don’t suffer such loss.
“I wasn’t here last year, but I am thankful God made this possible thanks to all those who made this possible all our sponsors, they have made this possible and God bless them,’’ he said.
