Imbibe sporting culture, Mark tells Nigerians



President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has tasked Nigerians to imbibe sporting culture in order to keep fit saying government is keen at improving the sector and make the nation sport driven destination.
Speaking at the 3rd Pro-Am Pa Aikwuta Mark Memorial Golf Tournament in Otukpo at the weekend, Senator David Mark, said as the game of Golf was gaining ground in the country; other sports must not be denied of growth.
Speaking through his wife, Helen, the Senate President urged Nigerians to rise and engage in one form of sport or the other, pointing out that government alone could do everything without the support from the people.
According to Mark, “Sport is a way of life; it keeps you fit and brings out the best in you.  I want to implore everyone to associate with one form of sport or the other.
“The best way I can ignite the memory of my late father is to organize a memorial golf tournament in his honour, which I will continue to do.  My father lived a life full of passion and sacrifice. So, I should remember him passionately with the best game I play which is golf.
Senate President also commended the participants at this year’s tournament, adding that the St. Mark Golf and Country Club, Akpegede, Otukpo. was one of the best golf clubs in the country today because of the efforts of some few individuals.
He, therefore, called on well meaning Nigerians to join in the efforts to make Nigeria a desired destination in terms of sports.
This year’s 3rd edition of Pa Aikwuta Memorial Golf Tournament featured various categories of golf play, while the defending champion, Amos Korblah, thrilled the participants with another win to retain the trophy.
