Kaduna Golf club’s huge honour for Omoluwa
Fate played out well for Sir Lucky Omoluwa at the Kaduna Golf Club last Sunday. The man, who spent his entire youth to build the club founded in 1921 to fruition, was finally honoured in such grand style.
The entire club, with close to 2,000 members, was just rising from its 96th Annual General Meeting, which returned Colonel Ibrahim Biu, as Captain when curtains were drawn from a huge plaque. When the crowd came out of the mist, the plaque had said it all… the vast hall of the club had been named after Omoluwa.
Sir Omoluwa, a member of the Board of Trustees of both IBB Golf Club and the Kaduna Golf Club, savoured what he saw. Eyes closed, face serene, calm and guarded, the big man, who sits atop Pinnacle Communications, was already blinking back tears of joy.
But in truth, the whole moment counted for such joy, and tears of joy. The huge effort started sometime last year when the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasri El-Rufai hosted investors in Kaduna.
To make the event laudable, Sir Omoluwa’s Pinnacle Communications hosted a befitting KADINVEST Golf Open.
