IGC bigwigs prepare ground for Abimbola Davis’ birthday tourney
The Ibadan Golf Club (IGC) has set aside December 17 and 18 as days to celebrate one of their own, Otunba Abimbola Davis, whose birthday falls within that period.
According to IGC’s Acting Captain, Tunji Oladosu, the event will be one of the biggest birthday tournaments in the club’s history owing to the huge interest from golfers numbering almost 150 that are registering to participate.
He described the celebrant as an extremely upright personality, who usually goes extra mile to prove and justify whatever cause he believes in.
“Getting close to him, you will discover a perfect gentleman with great benevolence spirit,” he noted.
The Club Manager, Kola Ogunjobi, described Otunba Davis as a kindhearted man, who has contributed greatly to development of IGC since he joined, adding that his popularity is responsible for the high number of golfers that have registered to participate in the tournament.
“Otunba Abimbola Davis is a man with good heart… there is nothing we do here (IGC) that he will not support in one way or the other. In fact, I can’t quantify his huge support in terms of funds. He is a blessing to IGC and we can only reciprocate by celebrating him on his special day,” said the IGC club manager.
Also speaking ahead of the birthday tournament, Mary Okunola, the lady Captain of IGC, thanked Otunba Davis for always supporting the activities of the Lady Section, adding that the celebrant is gender friendly.
“There is noting too much to do to show appreciation for all he has done for the lady section of this club, from the time of my predecessors till date. He singlehandedly sponsored the establishment of Lady Captain’s office with furniture and gadgets and has also greatly supported the caddie’s shed refurbishment on-going in the club,” she said.
