Members of the Leopard Tournament Organising Committee include Mureen Reece, the chairperson, Wilson Egberipou, Barr. Mrs Ongodi Nkwoji, Ms Sumbo Oshile, the coordinator, Mrs. Remi Johnson and Marry Gabriel.

The golf event will be held in compliance with all Covid-19 protocols, and it has a medical committee in place for the care and safety of participants in course of play.

“Golfers, fortunately, are absolutely groomed to the tradition of rules as well as responsibility in general. We have realised that the virus is not a hoax and therefore must restrain contracting it by all means,” a member of the medical committee, Dr. Farombi, said.”
