Speaking on the mission of the club, ambassador Ekoko said: “We want to build leaders that will make the needed change that we need in our country, leaders that will be effective and committed in their various calling that will bring our country to the world best and that is why we engaged our youths in series of leadership seminars that will be of great benefit to them in their various leadership position.”
