Okatta told the Nigerian News Agency (NAN) in Abuja on Tuesday that the purpose of the tour was to secure the future of golf in the country.
“Now we’re about to start the 2021 season, and we’re going to be focusing on 18 and over kids.
“This will be so that we can ensure that the future of golf and that of young players is nurtured and developed from this part of the world.
“This is the goal of the tour, and we are 100% focused on making sure we achieve it and develop golf in the country,” he said.
Okatta said the foundation has embarked on a golf education program in CTF schools since 2018 to support the development of the sport at the grassroots.
“We also just launched the program in Owerri, Imo at the end of last year. Day-to-day we go to teach the students the basics of the game as well as provide them with kits and equipment.
“We do a lot with the limited resources we have. But, without a doubt, we continue to work hard.
“Golf is a fantastic sport and other parts of the world are ahead of us. So we try to catch up as much as possible, ”he said.
The return leg, which also started in Owerri on Tuesday, is scheduled to end on Friday. (NOPE)
