The National President Federal Government College (FGC), Kaduna, Old Students Association, Tukur Gazali has called on old students to come to the aid of the school in terms of development and helping to restructure the school to its glory days of academic brilliance and importance.
He gave the call at the association’s Annual General Meeting, Founder’s Day and commissioning of a Corpers Lodge and Matron’s quarters held at the school at the weekend.
Gazali urged members to be prompt at paying of levies which he said will help to meet the needs of the school and hasten development and provision of infrastructure in the school.
According to him, “the only way we can give back to the school is the ensure that levies and pledges are met at the appropriate time, after all, we should be grateful for what the school made us become.”
At the commissioning of the built lodge and matron’s quarter, Mrs. Omowunmi Kalejaiye, leader of the 1986 set that built and donated the Lodge advised fellow old students to be mindful of the school’s needs and requirements, adding that the building was just the beginning of greater things planned for the institution.
“We don’t need to wait for the federal government all the time. It’s our duty as old students to encourage our children in this institution to aspire for greater heights and this is how to do just that,” she stressed.
Speaking at the occasion, the Governor of Kaduna state, Malam Nasiru El-Rufai, represented by a Director from the State Ministry of Education, Alhaji Adamu Mohammed Mansur pledged the government’s support to the school in its drive at revamping the state’s education sector.
“The government of the state under this administration is bent at revamping the state’s education sector and your institution is going to benefit as well. We (government) promise to assist in many ways as our children’s future depend on it,” he added.
