• To support nationwide cancer diagnosis centers
Rotary International’s governor, District 9125, Ayoola Oyedokun, announced plans for the club to raise over $ 1 million to provide mega-projects to rural communities across the country.
Oyedokun, who said so yesterday after being appointed the foundation’s 13th governor, said part of the fund will be used to improve cancer diagnostic centers across the country.
This, the governor said, should ensure that citizens have unhindered access to diagnosis and treatment.
Oyedokun noted that the foundation’s culture is to improve the lives of citizens, especially at the community level, and stressed the need to mobilize more members for the club to influence more lives.
He promised fairness, truthfulness, and transparency in Rotary’s financial management.
For her part, former Rotary governor Jumoke Bamigboye, who urged the new government to consolidate its achievements, identified the COVID-19 pandemic as the greatest challenge facing the new leaders.
