Abeokuta Golf Club seeks Academy

Abeokuta Golf Club has called for  the Ogun State Government to establish a Golf Academy in the state.

The President of the club, Venerable Olukunmi Adekunke, said the academy would help  to curb drug abuse, cultism, insurgency, militancy and kidnapping  in the state.

Adekunle  made the call on  Friday ahead of an amateur golf competition to celebrate the sixth  year anniversary of  the Ibikunle Amosun  administration.

He also urged the government to include golf in its  budgetary allocation and encourage the sport in the extra-curricular activities of primary and secondary schools in the state.

He said, “The competition is an avenue to support the governor and showcase his achievements in the physical, industrial and recreational development of the state.

“When the government encourages golf, the nation becomes well-positioned for progress and development.”

Adekunle  added, “It is our desire to establish a golf academy for youths and promote the sport  for health for all.”

The  Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Afolabi Afuape, represented by the Director of Sports at the ministry, Mr. Adesola Faleti, explained that the state government was committed to rebuilding youths through sports towards becoming better citizens of the state.
