The Rotary Club of Lagos District 9110 will next week inaugurate Mrs. Modupe Sasore as the new president of the Club for the 2016/2017 Rotary Year. The Chairman of the Public Relations Committee of the club, Ehi Braimah, in a statement made available yesterday, said the investiture will take place at the Metropolitan Club, Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island, Lagos on Friday, July 1.
Sasore will be succeeding Larry Agose, after an eventful Rotary Year.
The statement quoted Sasore as saying that the Rotary Club of Lagos is the number one Rotary Club in District 9110 having been chattered in 1961. She added that the Club has grown over the years with high quality professionals who have sustained it.
“I hope to sustain that tradition,” Sasore assured. “Rotary is known for humanitarian work all over the world and the theme of the coming Rotary Year is ‘Rotary Serving Humanity’ and we hope to continue to serve humanity.”
She explained further that the major project for the Rotary Year would be in the area of education. Sasore added that the club has noticed a decline in reading culture hence, the club intends to partner with an Indian outfit, Janyaa Organisation, to commence a process for a pilot project called Lab-In-A-Box with the support of the Lagos State government.
Sasore, a seasoned legal practitioner and arbitrator who became a Rotarian eight years ago, was trained at the University of Lagos where she bagged bachelor’s degree. She had her second degree in University of London and is married with kids.
