The Governor of District 9141, Rotary International, Rotarian Ikponmwosa Ogiemudia says Rotary International decided to embark on the planting of trees in order for the environment and its inhabitants to get enough oxygen as well as curb natural disasters.

He noted that the exercise was to let the future generation know that the future is in their hands.

The Rotary DG who visited Osubi Community Health Centre being constructed by Rotary Club of Osubi, promised that WAEC fees of 21 students of Opete Secondary School, Enerhen will be paid by the district.

The Assistant Governor of District 9141, Dr. Ogbonna Ikenna commended the DG on behalf of other Rotarians for personally launching the tree planting campaign and presenting the donations.
