On the induction, president of the club, Rotarian Kenneth Nwoji, described membership drive as an important activity of the club.
”Membership is key to Rotary International and it has been said time without number that we should always work to improve our membership to ensure that we have people coming into the Rotary family.
“To talk about induction, a member qualifies for induction by attending the club meeting regularly and making financial commitments which are the dues.
“These are in line with the six areas of focus of Rotary, with much preference for community services, ranging from water, sanitation, economic development, child and maternal health. In other words, we ensure that we have a good environment.
”You will discover that Rotary through her foundation has fought hard to end polio in the world. The people of action called Rotarians dedicate their time and their resources to solve problems in the community by putting smile on the faces of people,” Nwoji stated.
On the future of the organisation, the Egbe Rotarian president described it as bright.
“Our target is to bring in young professionals with new ideas and enthusiasm that will further push our club high up. Today’s induction of new members gives us the opportunity to appreciate our members and look at where we have deficiency and make necessary corrections.
“It’s in this regard that I am charging these people that are inducted today to be good ambassadors of this club, and work in good faith, love and integrity to achieve their aim of becoming Rotarians for this is our divine mandate,” he added.
