Over 400 customized bags and thousands of ROKEJAS exercise books,
rulers, biros, pencils, erasers, sharpners, etc were on Thursday,
March 22, 2018 shared to pupils of Temidire Primary School, in Akute,
Ogun State, by the Rotary Club of Ikeja-South.
Led by the President of the club and Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of _YES
INTERNATIONAL! Magazine, _Rotarian Azuh Arinze, and ably supported by
past presidents like Bade Oke, Niyi Adesanya, Remi Bello, Julius
Nwokoro, Remi Babarinde as well as members like Michael Effiong, Okey
Anachuna, Funmi Abe, Hilary Egeregor, Segun Agbi, Andrew Esechie and
Omolara Omotosho, the community literally stood still for the
Rotarians who arrived in a convoy.
Equally part of the team was veteran broadcaster and Biscon
Communications Chairman, Prince Bisi Olatilo; Chief Executive Officer
of Encomium Weekly, Mr. Kunle Bakare; MD/CEO of Marketing and
Promotions Concepts, Mr. Kunle Onime, alongside a special delegation
sent by the Ogun Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Mr.
Clement Oladele and others.
The multi-million naira star project was in fulfillment of the promise
made by Rotarian Azuh, who is the 31st President of the club, during
his investiture on Sunday, October 22, 2017 to donate bags, books and
other writing materials to schools.
Excited and enchanted, the pupils, their teachers and Temidire
community leaders showered praises and thanks on Rotary for making a
difference in their lives. Just like they first did 10 years ago,
during the tenure of AG Remi Bello, MD, Crittal Hope Aluminium, who
facilitated the construction of Temidire Primary School then.
Thrilling the visiting Rotarians with songs, dance, poem recitation
and so on, joy and happiness were boldly written on the children’s
faces all through the event.
