President of Lagos Country Club, Mr Tajudeen Akande, has restated the club’s commitment to be a pace-setter among elite clubs in Nigeria and Africa.
Speaking ahead of the club’s 70th anniversary, Akande said that towards achieving this objective, the Management Council will continually build on the legacy of the founding fathers and past presidents by rebranding.
“I am happy to report that we have made significant progress since May 2017. We have upgraded the club’s main entrance, the Squash Section, the Table Tennis Section and the Tennis Section all wearing new look, with state-of-the-art facilities. Work is in progress on the Swimming Pool. The Children Galleria/Playground has been upgraded”, he stated.
“In terms of discipline and conduct, these have been significant improvements. Service delivery is surely improving gradually with the coming on board of a new Food & Bar Manager to support the new General Manager.
“We appreciate the huge financial assistance of Sir (Dr) Kesington Adebutu, and Lagos State Government in achieving these development projects”.
On his part, the Director-General of the Planning Committee, Mr Babatunde Okunuga, urged politicians not to be desperate in their bid to be elected into political offices, saying “these are the things responsible for inconclusive elections.”
In the programme for the anniversary tagged, ‘Something for everybody’, Okunuga disclosed that the anniversary lecture would hold on July 30, while the grand ball was fixed for August 3.
