• Appreciates her intervention in ending water challenges in the Golf Course

The First Lady of Kwara State Dr. Mrs Olufolake Abdulrazaq was presented with a plaque to commemorate her appointment as the Matron of the Ilorin Golf Club.

Presenting the plaque to Her Excellency the Captain of the club, Prince Segun Oyinlola expressed his appreciation for the First Lady's support and timely intervention over the water challenges that the club has faced within the recent years. Prince Segun informed Her Excellency that water is now running and the golf course is now ready to host upcoming tournaments and events which include a special children's programme and the male and female tournaments that the club had hitherto had challenges hosting in Kwara despite the Kwara teams attending tournaments in other states.

His Excellency, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq who is the Grand Patron of the club approved for water to be channelled to the course direct from waterworks.

Prince Segun also appreciated the Hon. Oyeyemi Olasunbo, Commissioner for Finance efforts of the the timely release of funds.

Recall that Her Excellency had recently visited the Golf Course in company of Kwara State Commissioner for water resources, Hajia Arionla Lawal on the need to look into the issue of lack of water which threatened the 18hole course. As a stop gap measure the Commissioner for Water resources ordered for the course to be watered manually pending when the club would be watered independently from the Waterworks.

Present during the plaque presentation was the Lady Captain of the club Mrs. Iyabo Ayinde.
