RUN DOWN OF LEO PROGRAMMA AND THE PROFILE OF NEW AKWA CITY LEO CLUB

After becoming international in 1920, three years after its formation in 1917,the co-founders of Leo Club JAMES GRAVER and WILLIAM ERNEST in 1957, proposed the involvement of young people to the value of selfless service to humanity and the world at large. 10 years later, precisely in 1967,the international board of directors gave approval to the formation of Leo Clubs as officially activity of Lions Clubs international.

LEO PROGRAM IN NIGERIA, Although the first Leo Club was organized in Pennsylvania USA in 1957, it was not until February 8th 1983, that the first Leo Club was organized in Nigeria in the name of CALABAR DOYEN LEO CLUB. Calabar Doyen Leo Club, though the first to be organized in Nigeria became the 3rd to be certified by the International office in Oak Brook on May 30, 1984.

PROFILE OF NEW AKWA CITY LEO CLUB. new akwa city Leo Club is a metamorphous of Akwa City Leo Club.

It is on record that, the club set a standard and new record in the then DISTRICT 404, Nigeria when it became the first club to received certificate within 5 weeks of its organization., formed in April, 1992, certified in Jun 1992 at the International office, USA. New Akwa city became the 75th Leo Club to certified by the International office.

Within the first five lionistic year of its existence, the club had produced two Regional Directors, the best Leo president in the Region 1994/95LY and the District 3rd Best Club (1994/95Ly).

At then, the possibilities for greatness were almost limitless, but just as it seemed as if the sun was rising, twilight came, when the sponsoring Lions, club, Itu Lions club lost its charter to render the club parentless.

To recommence it’s service journey became quite clear, when the remnant of the club in 1999 under the guidance of Hon. Godspower Udofe, 100%P,PRD, initiated a re-chartering process of the club under the sponsorship of Uyo Lions club. This dream became real when in the year 2001, the club under the name of NEW AKWA CITY LEO CLUB became recognized and issued with a charter certificate of organization with Leo Edet Enyong LAH, 100%P,PRD (now a Lion with Uyo Central Lions Club) as its charter president.

Three Hearty Cheers to New Akwa City Leo Club for 5 years in service

Whereas, when the idea of recharting this club in October, 1999 was conceived, some people received the proposal with little or no interest, while others doubted the ability to organize, manage and sustain the club, especially as it maintains the believe and thinking of some of our people that, no good thing can ever be formed by our people, to survive or a long period, especially when it has no financial benefit. Today, by the special grace of God, and with the help of some selfless minded members, NEW AKWA CITY LEO CLUB has proved detractors wrong, by surviving to become one of the most outstanding and valuable charter Leo Clubs in Nigeria, that is very active and in good financial standing.

Deserving greater honour is Lion Nse Ekefre MJF, NLCF, (four star fellow) who through his benevolence, regular support and encouragement has made this great achievement possible, our Lion at heart, lion Umanah O. Umanah, Sir you deserve a big honour. Our past Leo adviser, Lion Bassey Okor,
