“I want to thank Ikoyi Club 1938 Golf Section for agreeing to be part of this celebration. I want to also thank members and corporate organizations that partnered with us to put this in place for our patron, Nigerian Brewery, Pixels, Fanmilk and the second vice-captain, who chaired the committee, Alhaji Tunde Salami,” TGC captain noted.
