"Golf attracts the movers, shakers and diplomats of every country. Most of the important decisions that directs a country and businesses in the right direction are hatched on the golf," Otumfuo said at the 58th MTN Gold Cup.
"We must therefore treat the sport as a national phenomenon and stop the over reliance on one particular sporting discipline to the neglect of others," he noted.
