Arik Air, West and Central Africa’s largest commercial airline has thrown its weight behind IBB International Golf and Country, Abuja to stage the 2013 Independence Day golf.
The highlight of the event to mark Nigeria’s 53rd independence anniversary is the match between Nigeria and Ghana.
Arik is the lead sponsor for the two tournaments which are the most prestigious held at the IBB International Golf and Country Club Abuja.
The annual Nigeria/Ghana international golf match play will be held at the Club on September 28 and 29 while the Independence Cup will be staged on October 1.
Arik Air Managing Director, Mr. Chris Ndulue said the airline has been a great supporter of Nigerian sports and that the sponsorship of the golf tourney is the airline’s little way of identifying with a group of people whose patronage has been a great boost to the business.
“As a socially responsible airline, we strive to impact positively on our operating environment through sponsorship of events such as the Independence Cup,” Ndulue said.
Arik Air thanked the Management of IBB International Golf and Country Club, Abuja for giving the airline the opportunity to sponsor this year’s Independence Cup and thus identify with its valued guests.
