Friday 4th July, 2019. The Executive Chairman, Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye LCDA, Hon Rasaq Olusola Ajala, hosted the Rotary Club of Ilupeju Central yesterday in his office. Welcoming them in his office, Hon Ajala thanked them for the support extended to him and the party. He said their current theme (Connecting the World) was aligned with the programme of his government. He said: "The government can not do it alone; hence, there is need to be associated and have synergy with every patriotic Nigerian and any responsible corporate entity to be able to fulfil the covenant we have with our people. He also added that the government and Rotary club have shared a theme and objective but on different platforms. He believed the new President has everything it takes to take the club to a greater height like her predecessors. As an honorary member of the club, he assured them that he would continue to support and identified with them as he does to other organizations that have the passion to support and help the community. He said: "Both the government and the club are in the same pedestal in serving the people." He equally assured them that his government will reciprocate their kind gesture by supporting them in anyway it can despite that there are so many areas where the government's attention is needed. Responding on behalf of the club, Rotarian, Eniola Afolabi, thanked the Chairman for hosting them. She prayed to God to strengthen him to be able to move the LCDA to a greater height.
