Eko Club on Sunday named some newly completed buildings on the premises of its Club House in Surulere, Lagos after some late members of the club.
This was contained in a speech delivered by the President of the club, Dr. Shamsudeen Ade-Dosunmu, during the half yearly general meeting of the club held at the Blessings Hall, Eko Club, Surulere, Lagos.
He said the decision to honour past members became imperative due to their pioneering and visionary roles, especially having deliberated with the executives of the club.
“Eko Club was formed by notable Lagosians 46 years ago. They were 93 in number. The exco under my leadership deliberated extensively on the contribution of the founding fathers and through consultation, we singled out three of them for their pioneering and visionary roles,” Ade-Dosunmu said.

Those honoured were Justice Mutiu Omotola Bioshogun, Ist Eko Club member, Chief Rasheed Alaba Williams, 1st president and Alhaji Sikiru Ashamu Agoro, father of the house.
“The above mentioned men were passionate and unique in the roles they played towards the formation and nurturing of this great club. But for them and their colleagues, there will be no Eko Club,” Ade-Dosunmu said.
He said Eko Club was the first social club to make donation to the Lagos State Government on COVID-19, adding that this was acknowledged through a letter from Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
