The newly installed president of the club, Ibironke Alaba, who made the promise in her acceptance speech at her installation ceremony while taking over the mantle of leadership from Abiodun Oshinibosi, as the 15th president, promised to take off from where the former president stopped, adding that she would try her best not to let the club down, but justify the confidence reposed in her.
She reiterated the club’s commitment towards improving the lives of the people living within and outside its area.
Alaba explained that the clinic upon completion would also accommodate the incubators and photo theraphy machines that had been donated in the past to the hospital.
She also commended the succession plan of Rotary Club, just as she adds that it is worthy of emulation by the government.
“My main focus as the president is to build a national clinic for the Ifako-Ijaiye General Hospital.
We feel the space where the incubators are placed have become very small and we decided to have neonatal clinic.
“It is our project and it will be my joy that we will be part of these projects by donating generously to my success and that of the club.
It is a two-storey building with all the designs to accommodate neonatal equipment. We have been donating incubators and photo theraphy machines for the hospitals,” she said.
