President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has promised to intervene in the imbroglio between the Federal Capital Territory Administration Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed and the management of the IBB International golf and country club over the certificate of occupancy (C of O) of the complex.

The FCT administration is alleged to be demanding the sum of N255 million from the management of the club for C of O to legalize and authenticate the acquisition of the land.

But the management of the club led by its captain, Debo Olateju said on acquisition of the complex, the FCT then issued them with Right of Occupancy (R of O) instead of C of O.

Olateju, therefore, pleaded with the Senate President who is also an avid golfer to wade into the matter since the facility is just for recreation and public utilities and not necessarily a commercial venture.

However, according to a release signed by Paul  Mumeh, the Chief Press Secretary to the President of the Senate, Mark promised to look into the affair with a view to addressing the matter.

He charged the new executive of the club to bring in new ideas that would further promote the club saying that the club has over the years earned respect and reputation.
