President of Rotary Club of Omole-Golden, Mr. Babajinmi Ajibola, has urged the Lagos State Government to support Rotary clubs in improving people’s lives.
Ajibola, who spoke at the weekend in GRA, Ikeja, at his installation as the 16th president, said the government should support Rotary clubs to perform their roles as voluntary organisations providing humanitarian services.
Some of the areas of the club’s interventions, he noted, are peace and conflict resolution, disease prevention, access to potable water and sanitation, enhancement of maternal and child health, improvement of basic education and literacy, as well as youth/women empowerment needs.
He said Rotary Club of Omole-Golden, during his tenure, would do a lot of projects in the health and education sectors.
Ajibola also urged the Federal Government to address insecurity so that foreign investors would not be discouraged from starting businesses in the country.
He said: “The theme for this Rotary year is ‘Rotary Connects the World’. With this, the Rotary International President, Mark Maloney, is urging Rotarians worldwide to reach out to our friends and families to become more involved in Rotary activities by pursuing better connection with them and the world at large. My desire is to therefore engage in impactful projects that will showcase us as committed Rotarians, thus making more people seek to become part of us.
“Our projects cut across the six areas of focus in Rotary and these include promoting peace, disease prevention and treatment, providing clean water, providing maternal and child care, providing basic education and literacy as well as empowering and developing our community.”
