It was a celebration galore at the 5th anniversary of Adorable Social club, founded by Princess Ada Okeke-Amam ,which took place at the popular EUC Modern Hotels and Suites, Amuwo Odofin-Festac Town in Lagos on Sunday 25th September 2016.
Cream de la Cream of the society, women NGOs, Community Leaders etc. were fully in attendance to savour the joy of turning 5 with the organisation.
In her opening speech, Princess Ada Okeke –Amam (Adakaibeya) retorted that the core objectives of the organisation in adding values to the society have been met. Though she said the journey has not all that been easy.
“The purpose of establishing Adorable Social Club by me 5 years ago was to add positively value to the society. It is not for frivolities or showing off. I believe that I have, but what of who do not? I believe I have many friends that I can rely upon, what of those who do not?
“I believe that a team work will always been a successful work. That was the reason for calling few of my friends together then , and we thank God that what we started on a small note has become a gigantic project in the areas of creating positive and better values to the society.
“We have branches now all over Nigeria. We have wiped many tears, fed the poor and still feeding them, gave shelter to those in need and even secured Legal services for those in core need of them , so that they don’t suffer for what they have not done. Truly, there is need to thank God. But I must confess the journey has not all that been easy, but with sheer determination; and the glory of God Almighty in us, we are thanking God for enabling us to make laudable roles into the society. I want others out there to do so’’. Okeke –Amam declared.
