GCI Class

Babalakin expressed satisfaction with the notable achievements of GCI Class ’91 Set, especially the developmental projects embarked upon to impact the students positively.

“I am aware of all that you are doing, but I want you to do more.

“As you all know, an MOU has been signed with the state government and this has been our prayers for years.

“GCI is now ours; we have been doing a lot, but the government wants us to do more, because we are actually in the trial period.

“And the more we do physical development and it is visible for the government, the faster it will be for them to be convinced of our determination to run the school,” Babalakin said.

Patron of the Class

Also, Babalola, in his capacity as the Patron of the Class ’91 Set and Chairman, Governing Board of GCI, said the school was back on track to attain its former glory.

“Though, it is not back to where we want it to be, I can assure you that with your supports and everyone, GCI will be where we want it to be in the next three years.

“We have a robust plan and presentation approval from the government, so nothing is stopping except us.

“Please, pass the message to your junior ones and your senior ones; this is the time we need ourselves the most,” he said.

John Alamu

Also, Mr John Alamu, an Agripreneur and Guest Speaker at the event, spoke on tips on how to get extra income.

Alamu said that agribusiness was the answer to the various economic hardships facing the country and the most important source of livelihood at this period.

Tunde Akinsola

In his anniversary message, Mr Tunde Akinsola, the Chairman, GCIOBA 1991 September set, said the mission of the set has remained sacrosanct.

GCIOBA Community

Akinsola said: “This is to become the most dynamic set within the GCIOBA Community, thus fulfilling our statutory obligations to the restoration of GCI.

“And, providing a platform for networking, career enhancement and creation of entrepreneurial opportunities within the class set.

“We believe in software intervention that can add value to the lives of the current students in GCI.

Government College

“In the last one year, we have sponsored so many initiatives tailored toward adding value to the boys in Government College, Ibadan.

Essay Writing Competition

“One of such is sponsorship of Essay Writing Competition, co-sponsorship of Jets Day Programme in partnering with the school management, payment of 2022 fees for three best students during 20212022 academic calendar.

“We believe so much in the education initiative.

Seyi Jegede

Also, Mr Seyi Jegede, the Chairman, Convention Planning Committee, said comparing the past with the present, so much had changed in the education sector.

“We are aware that it had not been the same most importantly in terms of employment of teachers; it had been lagging behind.

“I am well aware that as old boys, we have been involved in the decision to ensure that we have more teachers in school.

“I am sure that lots of teachers in this school (GCI) are the doings of the old boys, we have PTA teachers.

“At some points, the percentage of PTA teachers is almost more overwhelming than what was provided by the government.

“We know the government cannot do it alone as education is a collective responsibility, considering the enormous responsibilities and challenges in the hands of the government.

“But, it is the right of every child to be educated.

So, I just wish the government could do more,” Jegede said.
