President of Golf Federation of Nigeria,Segun Runsewe said Golf can reduce Unemployment in Nigeria.
Runsewe disclosed this after an extra-ordinary meeting with the board members, which held at the federation’s secretariat office package B National Stadium Abuja.
The Director General Art and Culture said the Federation is set to organise constant competitions to make youths get busy with golf.
“I believe the youths and most of the leading captains are coming up with one or two programs.
“We are going to support them, golf alone can help us reduce crime, unemployment in the country only if we make them busy through sports activities.
”Golf also can positively affect the growth of economy in the country.

“We also have to do that now to improve the standard of living of our people through golf,” he concluded.
