The Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi,  Esama of Benin, Chief (ROTN) Gabriel Osawaru Igbinedion and  Augustine Alegeh (SAN), President of Nigeria Bar Association (NBA)  are part of the dignitaries  that would grace the induction and fund raising ceremony of Rotary International District 9110, this Saturday at the Shell Hall of Muson Centre, Lagos.

This was made known during the courtesy visit of Yemisi Alatise, the International Inner Wheel First Black President to the district lately.

According to Chester Apasi , the  Chairman, Planning Committee, Rotarian Patrick Ikheloa  will be inducted as  the District Governor  for the  2016/2017 Rotary year.

The high point of the event which will start by 10:00am is to raise funds for the District’s mega projects, which is to compliment efforts to clubs in the district to further register the presence of Rotary in various communities by addressing Rotary’s six areas of focus which include maternal and child health, water and sanitation, economic empowerment and community development, peace and conflict resolution, disease treatment and prevention and quality education, Apasi said.

While reflecting on the personality of the District Governor to be induced, Apasi noted that Patrick is a man whose passion for humanity cannot be over emphasised, going by his over 20years of consistent investment of time, treasure and talent both as a member of the Rotary club of Gowon Estate and the afore mentioned district, where he has functioned at different leadership levels over ten years.

Apasi ,also expressed that a cross section of Rotarians in the district are optimistic that the incoming president who is a civil engineer , an astute administrator and strategist  would provide the nature of leadership that will further promote the  lofty goals of the organisation.
