President of Lagos Country Club, Tajudeen Akande, has vowed that the club will continue to be a pace-setter among other clubs in Nigeria and Africa.
He stated this while speaking ahead of the club’s 70th anniversary held in Ikeja and he asserted that the club will always improve on the already existing legacy of its previous leaders.
Akande said: “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.
“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, John Ekpah Akogu.
