Over 400 customised 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 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 (FRSC), Mr. Clement Oladele and a host of others.
The multi-million naira star project was in fulfilment 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.
“This is just one of our own little ways of serving humanity,” said the president. “We thank Rotary and we also thank all those that have supported us”.
