As stipulated by the Golf section rules, the Vice Captain of the Golf Section, Mr. Bayo Alli and another officer Mr. Oluremi Olukoya conducted the AGM, with over 80 eligible golfing ladies of the sub-section in attendance.
Other officers on the committee are: Mrs. Candy Agu- Lady Vice Captain, Mrs. Irene Ubah – Honorary Secretary; Mrs. Abah Oputa – Honorary Treasurer; Mrs. Meenakshi Kumar – Competition Secretary; Mrs. Gloria Joel-Onowakpor and Mrs. Mercy Kuye – Joint Handicap Secretary; Mrs. Tinu Feshitan – Social Secretary; Mrs. Edith Udegbe and Mrs. Ify Onukwuba – Joint Publicity Secretary.
In her acceptance speech, the new Lady Captain congratulated the outgoing Lady Captain Ms Tosin David for a successful tenure. She thanked all the ladies for turning out in their numbers to vote in the new committee. She said this is significant as it shows the love for the game of golf and the growing interest among the ladies in the affairs of the golf section. ‘Let us all move past the elections and work together as a team,’ she said.
Iyiola promised that ‘transparency and fairness’ would be her watchword in the running of the affairs of the subsection. She said, “we will be transparent and carry you along in all we do. Nothing will be hidden.”
