A socio-cultural organisation, Eko Club, has sworn in a former member of the Lagos State House of Assembly
They were selected and sworn-in during the club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) attended by members and held on Sunday in accordance with the organisation’s constitution.
In his acceptance speech, Agoro assured members that under his tenure, the objective of the founding fathers, which were to protect and promote the interest of its members in all spheres of life, would be maintained and strengthened.
While paying glowing tributes to the founding fathers of the club, he noted that the club would also be making useful contributions to the development of Lagos State and Nigeria.
Agoro, who appealed that members should be civil in their activities, tolerant, and overlook others’ shortcomings, challenged the Club’s Board of Trustees to rise and take up their statutory functions as stated in Eko Club constitution, given the crisis confronting the organisation.
On behalf of his administration, he promised to uphold the constitution of the club, guide jealously the norms and traditions, and customs as laid down by the founding fathers of the club in 1974.
Commending the immediate past president, Dr. Ade Dosunmu, the president thanked the erstwhile and past leaders for their positive contribution towards the progress of the club.
Agoro emphasised that the new leadership would sustain and consolidate on the improvement of facilities of the club, as already done by the former presidents with great caution on the finances of the club.
He, therefore, enjoined members to continue to show their support to the leadership to bring more positive development to the club.
