The induction ceremony took place in 3 main stages. The first step was an allocation of AKWABA Club President Mrs. Victoire GABALA who welcomed the audience and solemnly opened the ceremony.
The second part of the evening consisted of the enthronement itself. Indeed, after the Rotary song hummed in heart by all the audience, each godfather and godmother presented his godson and especially mentioned why they would make good Rotarians.
