Remo Secondary School Old Students to Raise N150 million for Renovation of Alma-Mater0
The Old Students Association of Remo Secondary School, Sagamu, Ogun State, have concluded plans to undertake a N150 million renovation of their alma-mater.
The Chairman, Organising Committee of the old students association, Oyeniyi Famoriyo, made this known at a press conference Wednesday at the Iwe-Iroyin Press Centre, Abeokuta.
The conference was part of preparations for the 60th annual reunion of the former students scheduled to hold at the college premises on Saturday, October 19.
Mr. Famoriyo explained that the developmental fund, which would be launched on the day, would be used for the renovation of 24 classrooms, the library, staff room, school hall and school wall; provision of a new school bus, a 60KVA generator and computers; and the construction of four additional classrooms, a modern kitchen, and a science laboratory.
The committee chairman, who was accompanied by another notable old student, Abiodun Allison, said the school, founded on February 4,1946, was the first co-educational school in West Africa and has produced a number of prominent and successful Nigerians both home and abroad.
He stated that, the decision to give the school a face-lift, was as a result of the fading and dilapidated state of its structures, which, he emphasised, was not in the interest of the ex students.
He disclosed that Saturday’s ceremony would also include an award ceremony, with awards bestowed on four former students, including two posthumously.
The posthumous awards would go to former Nigeria Ambassador, Segun Olusola, and the school’s first Head Boy, Ebu Awobokan.
Other awardees include Gabriel Ogunmola and the immediate past National President of the old students association,Tola Mobolurin.
Mr. Famoriyo called on old students who were yet to register with the association to take the advantage of the association’s new website and register online. He gave the website address as www.remosecondaryschool.com and e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
