More than 1,000 residents of Ogun State were the beneficiaries of a charitable endeavor providing free eye treatment and surgical procedures. This initiative was organized by the Riders and Owners of Motorcycle Organisation (ROMO) in collaboration with the Lions Club within the state.
During the program held in Abeokuta, Alhaji Abdulfatai Sotayo, the Chairman of ROMO, emphasized the importance of enhancing the healthcare services available to the people of Ogun State, in alignment with the efforts of Governor Dapo Abiodun’s administration.
Sotayo stated, “We all recognize that health is wealth, and we are acutely aware of the significance of good eyesight in our daily lives. It is with this understanding that our organization forged a partnership with the Lions Club to make a meaningful impact on the lives of our citizens. This endeavor also serves as a way to complement the commendable healthcare initiatives led by the governor.”
Akintande Abiodun, Chairman of the club’s committee on eye awareness for 2023, along with Taiwo Fatokun, the first Vice District Governor of the Lions Club, revealed that the project, named ‘Vision in Lions Club,’ signifies the club’s commitment to promoting and preserving eyesight throughout the month.
