The governor spoke at the tee-off ceremony of the first Arsenal Open Golf Tournament at Obinze Golf Course, near Owerri, on Saturday.

Performing the opening ceremony, the governor thanked the organizers for choosing Owerri, the Imo State capital for the tournament. He also thanked the management of Polaris Bank for sponsoring the event that attracted captains of industries, local and foreign investors to Imo State.

He described the tournament as a thing of joy, noting that it is holding at a time when those who are not aware of the real security situation in Imo are scared of coming to the state.

“With the tournament taking place in Owerri you are able to see that after all, there is peace in the state and people are at home doing their normal businesses without fear of molestation or harassment”. 

Governor Uzodimma thanked the Imo Golf captain and organizers for their support and assured that he will do everything within his powers to give the golfers, the organizers and Polaris Bank the support and encouragement they need to have a memorable outing in Imo.

Welcoming the governor and his entourage to the ceremony, the Captain of Imo Golfers, Chief Cliff Orjiakor appreciated Uzodimma for gracing the ceremony and recalled the experiences of Imo golfers and their colleagues across the country in the past at Obinze Golfers Field.
