The Acting President of Rotary Club of Tin-Can Island, Lagos, District 9110 Rotary  International, Rotn Francis Aniezechukwu, has passionately pleaded with the government at  all tiers and the society, to please assist the Rotary International, execute its numerous  programmes to alleviate the problems of all, especially, the suffering masses.

He said it is  important for the wealthy, the privileged and the organised private sector,  to join the Rotary Club  in its capacity building programmes, as government alone cannot  shoulder the  responsibility.

These remarks were made at the end of the club’s membership and extension awareness drive  and walk, which flagged off from the premises of ThisDay Newspapers in Apapa, Lagos.
