Rotary Club of Ikoyi Metropolitan, with support from Forte Oil, has delivered on the promise made by its President, Rotarian Florence Ayoola Egbeyemi to the Obalende /Ikoyi community in Lagos to provide chairs and desks to pupils in schools within the locality. According to Egbeyemi, Basic Education & Literacy is one of the focus of the Rotary Organisation and the donation of the furniture was to ease the sitting and studying of pupils in public schools. The first set of schools that have received the furniture items are Dodan Barrack Primary school and Army Day Primary school. She urged other organisations to emulate this laudable deed of Forte Oil.
During the event, the Rotary District Governor (DG 9110) Patrick Ikheloa commended Egbeyemi the 15th President of RC Ikoyi Metropolitan on her 17th project launch and thanked the representative of the CEO of Forte Oil, Mr. Seye Alabi for his companyâ€™s support as a socially responsible corporate citizen. â€œThe Rotary club of Ikoyi Metropolitan really appreciates the efforts of great organisations such as Forte Oil in partnering to deliver this project and helping to nurture and assist the future leaders of our great country,â€ Ikheloa said.
