IGSO Old Students Donate Multimillion Naira Garment Workshop To School, Urge Gov Aiyedatiwa To Prioritise Education

 

 

Students of the Independence Grammar School, Ondo, have cause to celebrate as the old students of the school ( 1984 sets) will donate a multi-million garment factory workshop as part of the 40th years reunion celebrations.

The commissioning and reunion comes up on Friday, 28th June 2024, at the school premises along Ondo/ Ore Expressway.

In a statement issued by the chairman, planning Committee, Independite Victor Oriola, the gesture is part of giving back to the school.

According to him, “as part of the commissioning, meritorious service awards will also be conferred on deserving old students to spur others to participate in the growth and development of the school.

Among those to be honoured are the national president of the Alumni association, Mr Dele Edokpayi and national treasurer, Engr Odunayo Olasanoye.

Other members of 1984 set to be honoured are Chief Abayomi Fadojutimi, Alhaji Alade Ademola, Damilola Roseline Awosanya, and Damilola Raymond Adeniyi.

On why the 1984 set built and equipped the garment making workshop for the students, a member of the 1984 set who coordinated the project, Mr Yinka Ijelu said it was as a result of findings that the students were going to learn how to sew cloth after school hours instead of attending the evening lessons.

The statement further read; “Since it’s obvious that government alone can not do it because of economic crisis, we have tasked ourselves to be able to contribute our modest quota to the education of the younger ones.”

The 1984 set, however, urged Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa to focus more on education, which is the pride of the state from time immemorial.

“From the late Adekunle Ajasin, Adebayo Adefarati and Dr Olusegun Agagu have all contributed their quotas.

While late Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu will be remembered for the Omotosho Industrial hub, Dr Segun Mimiko will be remembered for the University of Medical Sciences, Ondo.

“We would like Gov Aiyedatiwa to write his name in gold like Dr. Agagu who established the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa, by focusing more on education.” The statement said.
