FG lauds Rotary International on humanitarian peace, others

The federal government says Rotary International, with 1.2m volunteers across the world and over 35,000 clubs, made up of business and professional leaders in Nigeria, has distinguished itself as a foremost organization providing humanitarian service and promoting peace and goodwill across the world. 

The Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Sunday Dare, who spoke in Abuja at the 2021 All Nigeria Rotary Conference, said the theme ‘Uniting Nigeria through Rotary’ was apt because there was unarguably no service organization with the preponderance of volunteers across religious persuasions cutting across ethnicity and tribe like the Rotary Club.

Dare, represented by his Special Assistant on Multi-Media, Toyin Ibitoye, said additional 25,000 younger Nigerians would benefit from the federal government’s N75bn soft loan for Small and Medium Scale Enterprises.

He said a total of 6,054 entrepreneurs had so far benefited from the scheme.

He said: “Crafted as a 3-year loan of 25bn annually with each beneficiary getting between N250,000 to N3m, 6,054 entrepreneurs have benefited so far, while another 25,000 are on standby to go through the specified training before funds disbursement.”
