Nigeria’s fintech company, eTranzact International Plc, has reaffirmed its commitment to facilitating more business collaborations within the public and private sectors in Nigeria through its sponsorship of the eTranzact Golf Classic in Lagos.

The eTranzact Golf Classic is a three-day professional and amateur golf tournament scheduled to hold from Thursday, April 27 to 29, 2023 at the Lakowe Lakes Golf Estate, Lagos.

It will feature registered professional golfers from across Nigeria and other countries slugging it out for fun and glory while gathering ranking points on the professional golfers’ development tour.

The registration portal, which opened on April 10, 2023, has over 200 professionals and category one amateur golfers already registered for the tournament.

Speaking at the event, the Managing Director, Niyi Toluwalope, said eTranzact, as the pioneer fintech company at the forefront of connecting businesses and agencies in Nigeria, has taken on the responsibility to create more avenues for productive business-to-business (B2B) collaborations and they have found the game of golf most suitable for this.

“We are a super fintech company working with businesses and governments to facilitate seamless trade and exchange of value while also working with other fintech to drive successes across sectors. It is therefore not unexpected that we want to create more platforms for business leaders to network and drive more collaborations.

“Golf is a precision game that develops the minds of its players, and teaches spontaneity, focus and concentration while also encouraging strategic thinking and creative problem-solving. These are all qualities that successful business leaders must possess regardless of age and experience.

“Therefore, having identified the role the sport plays in our society, we have chosen it as our way of connecting business leaders and professionals who have embraced it to relax and refresh their minds to face the rigours of creating more innovative ideas that will grow African economies,” he said.

In his comment, the Deputy Managing Director, Hakeem Adeniji-Adele, described the forthcoming fester as a launching pad for greater involvement of the company in promoting sports and the general well-being of Nigerians. He spoke on the core target audience of the sport as smart, discerning and innovative individuals.

He said: “Obviously, sport is very important to young people across Africa and as the leader in the youth-dominated fintech space, it is a natural desire for us to constantly create and support ideas that bring excitement with development together for the younger demographic.

“We hope that the eTranzact Golf Classic will also help us to gradually get younger people more interested in playing golf because of its many mental and physical benefits. The future of our industry and indeed corporate Africa is youth and we can as well start to build that lifestyle that helps them to keep their minds refreshed and creative for the growth that the continent relies on them for.”
