With a total of 41-Stableford points, Okoroafor Bank Anthony stole the show at this year’s Total Energies Charity Golf Tournament held at Ikoyi Club 1938.

The 25th edition of the competition was meant to celebrate the best of golf and also to aid the less privileged in the society and it lived up to that billing.

Closely following Bank-Anthony was Nik Oduniwe with 36-Stableford points, while Andrew Egbakhumah took the third position.

In the ladies’ category, Oyenike Aworanti recorded 44-Stableford points to emerge victorious, with Anita Udo’s 29 placings her in the second position, while Betty Onwu came third on a score of 28-points.

Obinna Okoli won in the special category for Total Staff, while Stella Nze won in ladies Total staff cadre.

Also on the winning side were two charity institutions, Wesley School (for the hearing impaired) and Black Diamond Support Foundation, which got N1 million each from proceeds of the event.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Managing Director, TotalEnergies Upstream Companies, Mr. Mike Sangster, said the tournament was aimed at “providing a platform for reaching out to and assisting society’s weak and defenceless,” adding that the gesture was “in line with our goal of becoming the world’s most responsible energy company.”

He also seized the opportunity to enumerate his organisation’s involvement in sports sponsorship and development not just in Nigeria, but across the continent.

He said the TotalEnergies Charity Golf tournament, which had been running for 26 years, took a new dimension in 2011 when it was adjusted to focus on a common love for people rather than a shared passion for golf.

“Since then, the event has served as a forum for reaching out to our society’s less fortunate people in line with the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy.”
