The Nigerian Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday, received on a courtesy call, a delegation of the Old Boys Association of Igbobi College, (ICOBA) to which he belongs.
The delegation led by Yomi Badejo-Okunsanya, (who represented the President of ICOBA), intimated Prof. Osinbajo about plans for the 90th Anniversary of the school.
In his response, VP Osinbajo stated that the anniversary was an opportunity to achieve many things including “drawing attention not just to the achievements of the school which are incredible, but also the potential in improving public education, and education generally in our country.”
“There is a resurgence, there are alumni everywhere and they are saying more or less the same thing, what can we do to get our schools back to what they used to be?”
He went on to say that the activities around the 90th anniversary of the school would “spark a great deal of interest and start a revolution of sorts around improving the quality of schools.”
The ICOBA also paid a courtesy call on another old boy, the Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
