The Managing Director of FBNBank Ghana, Victor Yaw Asante who is also a member of the Rotary Club of Accra – Ring Road Central, has assumed office as Governor of Rotary District 9102 which covers Benin, Ghana, Niger and Togo.

As District Governor, Mr. Asante is expected to preside over activities of the international humanitarian organisation in the four countries which form his District, ensuring a successful delivery of assistance and benefit to deprived communities and individuals in line with the organisation’s agenda.

Commenting on his new role in Rotary International, Rotarian Victor Yaw Asante said: “Rotary offers us opportunities for attending to issues which fall broadly under diversity, equity and inclusion across several areas. Within the four countries in District 9102, there exists several situations which Rotary and its partners, including the various governments, continue attending to. My role is to lead a group of professionals committed to improving lives in our communities”.

The principle of Rotary as an organisation is that clubs be grouped into districts led by an elected officer, the Governor, for their efficient and effective administration. Presently, Rotary District 9102 has over ninety clubs across the four countries, with two thousand, four hundred and eighty-five members. Rotarians in Rotary District 9102 remain committed to increasing their efforts at eradicating polio; promoting peace; fighting disease; providing clean water; saving mothers and children; supporting education and growing local economies.

Mr. Asante has officially assumed office as District Governor today, having been a Rotarian since 1989 and serving in various positions within the international humanitarian organisation at Club, National and District levels. He has variously served as Club President, Assistant Governor and Chair of a few District Committees.

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.4 million members of more than 34,000 Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work improves lives at both local and international levels – from helping families in need within their own communities to working toward a better world.

Today, Rotarians lend their time, expertise and resources to do good in their communities – focusing on peace and conflict prevention and resolution; disease prevention and treatment; water and sanitation; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; economic and community development; and the environment.
