Members of a pressure group known as the Club ’97 in the Lagos State Civil Service at the weekend treated themselves to an End of the Year Get-together to mark the end of the Year 2018 and usher in the new Year 2019 in grand style.
In his welcome address, the President, Mr. Akeem Adesanya, Council Manager, Surulere Local Government while rendering accounts of his stewardship for the outgoing Year 2018 congratulated members and thanked them for their unflinching supports which was the reason for the quantum of successes recorded.
Club’97 was established in 1997 as a pressure group and an umbrella body to agitate for the interest of workers from the Epe Division in the Local Government Service in Lagos State.
This year’s get-together party also featured awards presentation to active club coordinators from selected Local Governments and Local Council Development Areas as well as honouring the retired and past presidents of the association.
The Chairman of the occasion is the representative of Epe Division in the Local Government Service Commission, Lagos State, Commissioner Olabode Garberden. In his speech, he commended the group members for being good ambassadors of the Division in Lagos State Civil Service while ensuring them of continuous qualitative representation at the Commission.
High point of the occasion was the introduction and video presentation of the Club’s Target Savings Scheme (TASA) to members of the Club by the Scheme Chairman, Mr. Rasak Osunsan. The Scheme is one of the major achievements of the current executives of the Club aimed at encouraging saving culture among members especially one targeted at a particular project.
Commenting on behalf of the Awardees, the past presidents of the Club, Otunba Adeniyi Otuniyi and Mrs. Toyin Bowale were full of appreciation to the group’s current executives and members for the honour done them. While praying for the growth and development of the association, members were admonished to keep supporting the President, Mr. Akeem Adesanya and his cabinet members in their bid to taking Club ’97 to greater heights.
