Rotarian Afolaji Abolaji Paul has been sworn-in as the 11th President of Rotary Club, Abule Egba Metro, Rotary International, District 9110.

Rotarian Afolaji Abolaji Paul has been sworn-in as the 11th President of Rotary Club, Abule Egba Metro, Rotary International, District 9110. The investiture was also used to induct the 2021-2022 board members and raise fund for the club’s humanitarian projects.

Speaking after his inauguration, Paul said his projects for the service year were in line with projects assigned by the Rotary International, with the rehabilitation of six classrooms and four toilets at Army Children School, Abule Egba, as his star project, to make the school conducive for learning.  

“We carried out our tree planting in a school at Ota and we are also going to renovate Ile-Epo Police Station, among others. During the routine District Governor’s visit to our club, we would empower 10 widows with cartons of Indomie, rice and money.

“We are giving scholarship to a student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, aside donating medical equipment and circumcision kits to Primary Healthcare Centre in Abule-Egba Community, as well as erect the four-way test at Abule Egba Roundabout, among others.”

Paul, who promised to donate $7000 to the $3000 already donated to Rotary Foundation to become a major donor, encouraged other members in the club to emulate his gesture.  

Representing the District Governor, Assistant Governor Rotarian Kolawole Ogunsesan, said he expected Paul to increase members, sponsor students to RYLA, and support DEWEF, while the club members also contribute generously to the Rotary Foundation.
