Rotary Club of Victoria Island East has unveiled the Chief Executive Officer, Come Homes and Properties, Rotarian Macdonald Ukaeru, as its 35th imaginative President and Rotarian Juwon Amodu, as President-elect.

The club also inducted eight new members and raised funds that would enable it to embark on some projects.

Ukaeru, while speaking at the event held in Victoria Island, Lagos, under the distinguished chairmanship of the Chief Executive Officer, Victory Group Ltd., Otunba Sola Olatunji, expressed delight over the honour accorded him to lead the group and urged members to support his administration to achieve their objectives.

He noted that the gathering was because of members’ love for humanity and said that he joined the group barely five years ago to enable him to assist individuals and groups that require assistance.

Ukaeru said the club as a transparent organisation had put smiles on the faces of many, given hope to the hopeless, inspired the downcast and excited the service enthusiasts across various spheres of human endeavours.

He, therefore, promised to leave legacies at the end of his administration and urged members not to relent in assisting to continue running the errands of visiting and providing succour to the less-privileged in the neighbourhood and beyond.  

Earlier in his address, the Guest Speaker and Managing Consultant/CEO, Team Building International, Yinka Olugbodi, urged members to continue with their good deeds, saying their day of being crowned as kings and queens is at hand.

Also, in her welcome address, the Chairperson of, the Investiture Committee, Rotarian Mokesioluwa Seun-Adedamola, stressed the need for selfless service to humanity and encouraged members to give towards improving the community where they live.

In the chairman’s speech delivered by his representative, Mr. Tunde Longe, the philanthropist and big player in the marine sector of the nation’s economy, described the event as a milestone for the group in achieving its objectives and advised members to have the passion to follow relentlessly.

The newly-inducted members include Babarinde Balogun, Chinyere Mordi, Catherine Onotu, Nwajide Angus and Mary Ini Udu, Emilia Nweke, Oluwabusola Kayode and Imonighara Ese.
