Golf Fore Peace tourney platform for diplomatic dialogue — CDS

By Daily Sports Nigeria on October 31, 2023

The Chief of  Defence Staff, General Christopher Gwabin Musa, says the Golf  Fore Peace Tournament, which is scheduled to hold November 25 at the IBB Golf Course and Country Club, Abuja will not only encourage friendly competition but also provide a platform for diplomatic dialogue.

General Musa, a Peace Advocate and  the Special Guest of  Honour of the event, stated this when the Golf  Fore Peace Tournament team, led by its initiator, Kemi Olowoyo-Otegbade; Chairman, Organising Committee, Ambassador Enoch Duchi, Makosi Musambasi and others paid him a visit recently.

The Chief of Defence Staff emphasised that sporting events, such as golf tournaments, had the unique ability to foster camaraderie and bridge divides.

“Sports, by their very nature, promote fair competition, teamwork, and respect for rules. These values, when embraced, can transcend societal divisions and unite individuals from diverse backgrounds, fostering a sense of shared humanity.

“Participants from various nations, backgrounds, and ideologies would have the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations, sharing their perspectives and experiences. This exchange of  ideas, facilitated by the tournament, has the potential to cultivate understanding, empathy, and ultimately, peaceful resolutions,” he said.

“By engaging in friendly competition and conversations outside traditional military contexts, soldiers and civilians could interact as equals, fostering mutual respect and empathy. Such interactions have the power to dispel misconceptions, reduce animosity and pave the way for peaceful collaborations in the future,” Musa added.
