President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Yoruba Tennis Club as it celebrates its 90thanniversary.
A statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, the president joined the Lagos State Government, all members of the club and teeming supporters in marking the unique milestone of the oldest club in Nigeria, which was established in 1926.
Buhari commended the visionary leadership, innovative spirit and the brotherliness among members that had sustained the club since it was first conceptualized as an informal organization of tennis lovers to a formal and cosmopolitan group with a strong global appeal.
“As the club celebrates its 90thanniversary, the President urges members to use the platform and opportunity of regularly assembling people of various backgrounds to promote peace, unity and national cohesion,” the statement added.
Buhari wished the Yoruba Tennis Club a joyous and memorable anniversary.
