He said over the weekend at the Minna Cantonement Golf Club when the Grand Patron, Major General Salihu Zawaya Uba Tee-off to mark the coming on-board of a new captain for the Minna Golf Club that golfers will compete for various trophies.


According to him “We have different trophies for different categories of players and we limited the invitation for obvious reasons. We have professional groups, zero to 12 years, 13 to 20, 21 to 28 years and of course the female and veteran categories.


“We tee off today to mark the beginning of a new exco. I am the new Captain of the Minna Golf club and it is a tradition to initiate the coming on-board of  a new Captain to golfers so that they will be aware of a new leadership. We had the Sallah Mug during Sallah period and we are starting the Cadre’s competition this month.”
