The President of the club, Rotarian Michael Ajibade, premised the commendation on members of the club’s commitment of their 3 T’s made up of time, talent and treasure to moving the club forward.

During the visit, three members of the community, Mrs. Amdalat Mohammed, aged 50; Mrs. Rasidat Wahab, aged 47 and Mr. Timothy Abiodun, 50years, were each empowered with grinding machine.

The beneficiaries appreciated the magnanimity of the club for providing them with means of livelihood.

“We have contributed substantial amount of money to the Rotary Foundation, which include three major donors. That means a Rotarian has donated more than 10,000 dollars.

“This year we are sponsoring five youths to Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) while our representative will equally be with them at the programme,” he said.

Ajibade declared his tenure’s star project as ‘Eye screening and surgery’.

According to him, 250 patients will be screened, with drugs given out while free eye glasses will be given to those with poor eyesight.

He added that 40 eye cataract patients would be operated on.

Ajibade looks forward to increased membership and would like to be remembered after his tenure as a president that came and added value, not only to the club, but also to the society.

In her comment, Lawson described the club as a progressive one that has grown membership consistently for the past five years.

“The club has a structure and has been carrying out solid and impactful projects year in year out. Except for few areas, it has shown quality leadership traits meaning that it is a club with a goal.

The club has contributed to Rotary Foundation and also set goals that are challenging, contributed to DEWEF as a club and I have encouraged them to also support DEWEF as individuals. I told them to maintain their exemplary performance,” she said.
