Rotaract D9110, Nigeria.
Rotaract, an arm of Rotary International is a club for young adults committed to the ideals of service to mankind. Rotaract had its first club in North Charlotte, District 7680 USA followed closely by the Rotaract Club of Tacubaya, Mexico city.
Rotaract made her debut in Africa in 1969 with the Rotaract Club of Lagos (UNILAG), followed by the Rotaract Club of UNIBADAN, certified on 22nd July, 1970. Ten years after, the third club, Rotaract Club of Ilorin was certified by 17th April, 1980. the Rotaract Club of Lagos State College of Science and Technology (Now LASPOTECH) was certified as the 4th club on the 15th July, 1983. By the end of 1984, the following clubs were in existence in Nigeria – UNILAG, University of Ibadan, Ilorin, LACOST, MEDILAG, UNILORIN, ISOLO, LACOED, Ibadan Poly, Badagry, Onigbongbo, Satellite-Town and Festac-Town, while the following were in their provisional states NIJ, Ogba, Ota, Itire and Ile-Ife.
Efforts to organize and establish a district were championed by the Rotaract Clubs with the encouragement of PDG Julius Adelusi Adeluyi, Babs Ajayi and Bob Ogbuagu. Several meetings were held. A very decisive one took place in OWERRI in 1984.
At the meeting of clubs held at the College of Medicine, University of Lagos, Idi-Araba from 9th May 1984, this decision was ratified and D9110 was born. About this time, R.I. had split the country into two Districts 911 and 912 and subsequently, Rotaractors Cyril Afiawari of Onigbongbo and Chuks Agoha were elected DRRs for District 911 and 912 respectively.
