The Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine, Rotarian Azuh Arinze, alongside other journalists and media houses like The Punch, The Guardian, The Nation, TVC and Radio Lagos were on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, honoured by Rotary International, District 9110 Nigeria – comprising Lagos and Ogun States.
According to Rotarian Bola Oyebade, the District Governor, the awardees were meticulously singled out for their immeasurable coverage and reportage of Rotary activities. Lavishing thanks on them and at the same time soliciting more support from their media organisations, he added that it would have been tantamount to groping in the dark if all the good works done by Rotary were not duly highlighted by them.
Dubbed the Humanitarian Reporting Award 2021, the ceremony held inside the Bank PHB hall of the Rotary Centre, in Ikeja GRA, Lagos. A hybrid event, respected Rotary leaders like DG Bola Oyebade, DGN Omotunde Lawson, DGND Ify Ejezie, PDGs Michael Olawale-Cole, Deinde Soga, Richard Giwa-Osagie, Kamoru Omotosho, Patrick Ikheloa, DS Mufutau Adelotan, PAG Samuel Ayetutu (chairman of the organising committee), PAG Lanre Kassim, etc were all there.
