The Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) would confer honours on two personalities at its 38th Awards Night on Saturday, June 29 at the Banquet Hall of the State House in Accra.
The duo — Prince Kofi Amoabeng, Chief Executive Officer of UT Bank, and Michael Ikpoki, Chief Executive Officer of MTN, — would be honoured by the association for their contribution to the development and promotion of golf in the country.
A SWAG statement yesterday, noted the personal commitment and dedication of Amoabeng to the sport over the years which had in no doubt put golf on a higher pedestal.
“In addition to being captain of the Tafo Golf Club, Mr Amoabeng is on record to have personally financed the renovation of the Tafo course and raised its standard to international level.”
On Mr Ikpoki, also an ardent golfer, SWAG said the sport had seen tremendous improvement thanks to corporate sponsorship from MTN Ghana since he took over the reins of the company.
The two would be honoured with special awards on the night expected to attract 800 guests from the sports industry and invited guests from the corporate world.
The Awards Gala is to honour sportsmen and women who distinguished themselves in the year 2012. —GNA
