Golf, like every other sports, is a veritable tool to facilitate unity among diverse regions, like we have in Nigeria, and that is the idea behind Unity Cup Golf Championship; the brainchild of current captain of Ikoyi Club 1938 (Golf Section) Dr. Meckson Innocent Okoro, and he found a worthy ally in Polaris Bank, sponsor of the three-day tournament that took place last weekend. He is broad-minded, a thinker and a doer. Anytime Okoro dreams, it must come to pass. Though it might take a while, and difficult atimes, as its always the case on the golf course, it is the result that matters.
Okoro dreams unity, he dreamt oneness, he admire an opportunity to gather golfers from across the country as a unifying force. To achieve this, he came up with the idea of ‘Unity Cup Golf Championship. However, he also reasoned, “no matter how beautiful an idea is, it needs fund to succeed”.
