Rotary Club of Omole Ojodu installs new president
The Rotary Club of Omole Ojodu, Lagos, has installed Dr. Theophilus Taiwo Ajose as its second president for 2017-2018 Rotary year.
In his acceptance speech, Ajose said his vision included expanding the humanitarian services of Rotary at the local level.
“The local level is the closest to the people. A lot of people at this level do not know what Rotary is all about.
“While Rotary’s vision is to eradicate polio and other natural diseases that affect children and youths in which we are also involved, during my tenure, I am in addition to that, taking up on education and provide amenities for the less privileged.
“I want everyone to feel the impact of Rotary during my tenure,” he said.
Ajose, recalling the achievement of the Club in the past two years, disclosed that it partnered with the Turkish and other foundations and was able to provide rice, meat and clothing for students in orphanages.
He said the club also carried out free health camps and also empowered the youth.
He debunked the claim that Rotary Club is a secret society saying: “Members of the public are allowed to attend Rotary meetings, which are held in hotels, club houses and so on. Rotary is a humanitarian organisation and not a secret cult. It is also the coming together of people that as the opportunity arises, help themselves in their businesses,” he said.
