Rotary Club of Kubwa in Abuja has commissioned its intervention projects in the area.
The projects included a police control post, filling of potholes and landscaping of road at Aso Savings junction In Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory to ease traffic flow.
At the event, the president of the club, Emmanuel Abonta, said it has been the practice of Rotary Clubs to identify areas of need within its catchment area.
He added that the projects would help road users to commute easily to their destinations.
Abonta said, “We adopted a community somewhere here called Kungabukun where we have helped to renovate their health centre, provided free drugs to all pregnant women, renovated their LEA school and built a new classroom and administrative blocks. We have also provided a bus-stop at Ashafa within this neighbourhood.
“As a voluntary organisation, we cannot sit and fold our arms, we have to come out to fill in the gap. That is what we are trying to do here today, by giving back to the community,” he said.
Abonta advised Nigerians to embrace and support humanitarian work and provide solutions to the society’s problems, adding that the government cannot do it alone.
On his part, the district governor (D9125) Sagab Sani Ahmed said the project is to improve infrastructure in the community.
Ahmed said one of the major aims of Rotary is to “develop a community within which Rotarians live and this is one of such projects. This is a commendable project particularly looking at the area it is being done, which is very useful to the people.”
