IT was a day of empowerment for students of Jubril Martins Secondary School, Issa Williams Memorial School and Iponri Grammar School, in Surulere, Lagos, when the Rotary Club of Surulere-South engaged the pupils on career counseling on what it takes to be a lawyer.
The project tagged: “Career counseling talk and donation of educational items to schools within Surulere,” took place at Jubril Martins Secondary School, where the students, in addition to the career talk, also went home with exercise books and writing materials.
Speaking at the occasion, the president, Rotary Club of Surulere-South, Nkem Okafor, hinged the project on one of the six areas of focus of Rotary International, which is basic education and literacy. “We are here to assist the students in the area of career counseling and have chosen Law as a core subject because we have discovered that most students do not really know what the course entails.
The guest speaker, Greg Okafor, advised the students to be a voracious reader if they want to be a good lawyer. He described a lawyer as an all-rounder, fearless and a man or woman of integrity.
The principal of Issa Williams Memorial High School, Jimoh Sulaimon, lauded the career talk and the writing materials given to the students.
