Classique Gentlemen’s Club debuts in Lagos
A new social club, Classique Gentlemen’s Club, yesterday, was inaugurated in Ikosi Ketu area of Lagos State, with a charge to members to focus on the core values of the club, which are Commitment, Friendship, Openness, Respect, Courage, Equity and Democracy (C-FORCED).
Speaking during the investiture ceremony, the chartered president, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Hakeem Adeniji, charged the new members to give in their best towards representing the best values of a core gentleman in conduct and character, while also devoting their energies towards the betterment of society through the club’s philanthropic gestures to assist the needy and less privileged in society.
Adeniji said: “It’s a new club we are inaugurating today, it’s like unleashing a brand new club on the world, it’s a club that comprises gentlemen who have decided to come together to foster stronger relationships so that the purpose of coming together can be achieved.”
The Publicity Director, Sulaiman Oluwashina Ishola, said the club is barely five months but the members have been together for over 20 years as members of an organisation with the aim of reaching out to the less privileged.
“We have been relating together for over 20 years as members of one organization. We had a club we were in but had to pull out of that club because of certain irreconcilable differences. We discover that some of the members in the other club do not share the principles we enunciated with that club, so we felt as like minds to come together and continue the philanthropic vision that binds us together.”
