In line with its cardinal objectives and in accomplishment of its own 2018 September calendar goal which is the month for Basic Education and Literacy Month, the Rotary Club of Ikeja South, District 9110 hosted a graduation ceremony for students of its Adult Basic and Post Literacy class.
While addressing the graduates, Governor of Rotary District 9110, Rotarian Kola Sodipo, urged them not to rest on their current success as this was just the first of many rivers to cross in their educational voyage.
He also stated that he was happy to be in the midst of Rotarians from the Ikeja South, adding that he was highly impressed with the quota they were contributing to making Lagos a better state.
In the same vein, the club’s president, Rotarian Yinka Adeosun, hinted that a literate society and education for everyone was one of the club’s principal and fundamental goals and that it would continue to make sure the success it has recorded in previous years continue.
He also urged them to get others informed of the programme so that they would be part of it.
Certificates were awarded to students who were all smiles and full of thanks to God, and gratitude to the club for such an opportunity which they reckoned was very rare.
In killing two birds with one stone, the club also hosted a free prostate cancer screening for men above age 40 in partnership with Clinix HealthCare.
It also featured a lecture by Service Project Director, Rotarian Barth Ufoegbunam, wh threw more light on the disease in question, its symptoms, tests to undertake, preventive measures and possible treatments. Questions were raised and answers were provided. It was indeed an impactful programme which was organised as part of the District Governor’s visit to the club
