President of Rotary Club of Garki, District 9125, Dr. Victor Onukwugha, has disclosed that the club was set to commission 11 water projects in Bwari and Kuje area council in May.
He made this known during the District 9125 Conference held at Agura Hotel, Abuja, at the weekend.
“The boreholes are world-standard and aimed at improving the health conditions of the inhabitants. Bad water is the source of many diseases. The projects are located at villages in Bwari and Kuje area councils in the Federal Capital Territory. We have trained the inhabitants on how best to manage the facilities.”
He added that the club in the past one year had done an e-library for secondary schools in the FCT, distributed mosquito treated nets and built road signs at junctions to prevent accidents among school children.
According to him, the major problem of the club in the past one year had been quality membership.
“The migrant nature of Abuja makes membership problematic. People join and get transferred shortly. But we do our best to sustain the tempo of Rotary objectives. Rotary affects people’s lives positively and we do our best in that regard.”
The governor of District 9125, Lawrence Okwor, called on Nigerians to join Rotary and contribute meaningfully to the development of rural communities.
