Rotary Club of Falomo hosts District Governor
• Plans to keep beggars off the street
The Rotary Club of Falomo, District 9110, hosted its District Governor, Dr. Adewale Ogunbadejo, to a breakfast meeting. The club’s president, Mr. Jetta Ijeta, at the event disclosed that the club was poised at ensuring that beggars are no longer found on the streets of Lagos.
The District Governor, who was impressed by the club’s performance, urged members to up their ante in humanitarian activities.
According to Ogunbadejo, “what motivated me to join rotary was the will to do more good for people, because as a human being, there is a limit to what you can do, but when you work with other people, you would be able to so much more than what you couldn’t do as a person. There is joy when you impact on someone’s life.”
The club’s president, Ijeta, noted that his club would be embarking on some projects at the Rotary’s Wheel school established for rehabilitation of beggars in the country.
According to him, “we are going back to the wheel school, which we built for the beggar’s children. The essence of it is that we want to get these children off the street. We want to get them to be educated so that when they grow up, they won’t be common beggars.”
Ogunbadejo was born in Lagos on 14th September 1959 to the Family of Late Alhaji Salman Adebayo and Alhaja Musinot Aduke Ogunbadejo, both of blessed memory. A Prince of Soungbade Royal Family of Ososa and Anikilaiya Ruling House of Ijebu-Ode.

This he followed with higher school studies at the famous Igbobi College Yaba between 1975 and 1977.
He passed both the Ordinary level and Advanced level examinations in flying colors.
These paved the way for his admission to study medicine at Nigeria’s Premier Medical School at University of Ibadan from 1977 to 1982. He graduated with the Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery Degrees.
After internship and national service, he worked in various hospitals, including Post-Graduate experience in Surgery at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba before setting up his own practice, AniyunClinic on 1st September 1990.
