The Old Boys Association of Obazu Community Grammar School (OCOGRAMS) recently paid a courtesy call on the Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere, an “Old Boy” of the school, and passionately pleaded with him to ensure that “our alma mater must not die”.
In an address read by the chairman of the association, Prince Greg U.O. Ihenacho, KSC, they noted that the school has been closed for long and urged the Deputy Governor to do all in his power to resolve the problems.
He pledged the association’s readiness to assist in the reactivation of the school’s infrastructure in partnership with government and Obazu community.
Prince Ihenacho added that the present state of the school does not befit the reputation of the school as an institution that has produced men in various fields of human endeavour who have contributed immensely in the development of the state, the nation and humanity in general.
Congratulating the Deputy Governor on his recent elevation, the association described his appointment as well deserved being a dedicated, loyal, honest and humble servant of God and humanity assuring him and Governor Okorocha of their total support.
In his response, the Deputy Governor disclosed that the present administration has already sited four buildings in the school and assured them of government’s resolve to give the school a face-lift.
Urging unity among members of the association, he posited that way they could do a lot to bring back the lost glory of the school.
He thanked them for their persistent support from the time he contested for the senate in 2005 and now he has become the Deputy Governor and enjoined them to continue supporting the present administration in the state.
