Laurine Ubanozie Is 16th President of Rotary Ikoyi Club Metropolitana
Afinancial expert and Executive Director of Heritage Bank Plc, Mr. Jude Monye, has said that the world and indeed Nigeria will be a better place if everyone imbibes the spirit of giving and service to humanity, for which Rotary Club is known across the globe. Monye gave this charge when he delivered a keynote address entitled: “Giving” at the official installation and fundraising luncheon of Rotarian Laurine Ngozi Ubanozie as the 16th President of the Rotary Club of Ikoyi Metropolitan, which took place in Lagos recently. He described the act of giving to mean ‘giving or offering service willingly without compulsion and without expectation’, insisting that all should support the good work of the Rotary Club in putting smiles on the faces of people, especially the less privileged by giving to support such humanitarian services of the Club. “No one is useless, who lightens the burden of others”, he said, emphatically quoting Charles Dickens. Meanwhile, the outgoing President of the Club, Rotarian Florence Egbeyemi, in her farewell speech, said that Rotary is accountable and has integrity, insisting that every money donated to the club must be put into judicious use for the good of humanity and must be accounted for. The newly inducted president, Rotarian Laurine Ngozi Ubanozie in her acceptance speech thanked everyone that contributed in one way or the other to make the event successful, pledging that she would build on the successes recorded by her predecessor. Ubanozie, a Risk Financial Expert, is currently the Relationship Manager of an international Collateral Management Company, ACE Global Depository Group.
