Rotary Club of Agege installs President
Abiodun Bello has been appointed as the 38th president of Rotary Club of Agege, Rotary International, District 9110.
Abiodun said he would be focusing on Rotary International’s seven areas of focus.
We have done tree planting, which has impacted students through reading culture from textbooks. We did this for 36 schools and the students were also counselled.
“We also went to secondary schools for career counselling and 27 schools were gathered at Government College, Agege, who were talked to by lawyers, accountants and architects, among others and the exercise was very impactful. Two students among them, a boy and a girl were given scholarships under our Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) for answering questions correctly.
“We still have a lot to do, including conflict resolution,” he said.
According to the president, the club is planning to have a Rotary House, which would some of the miscreants as the club intends to take area boys out of the streets and train them in different vocations in the house, which would make them become better persons in the society.
He added that he was sure that the exercise would make them re-think and become good citizens while their parents too would be happy and the society would be better.
He said that the project would be a continuous one as his successor would continue wherever he stops.
