The three-day event, which kicks off tomorrow, Friday July 27, 2018, will begin with a ‘Back-to-School’ lunch and symposium themed, “The Kings College conundrum: where do we go from here?”
A member of the organising committee, Kings College Old Boys’ 88, Olumide Akpata, said the occasion will also feature official launch of three class projects donated for their alma mater.
He noted that the overall aim of the event is to give back to the school and also throw light on the issues of decay vis-à-vis educational and infrastructural development in the country.
On the activities lined up for the event, Akpata said, “After our ‘back-to-school’ lunch, we would have a Jumat service at the mosque, before proceeding to the school’s assembly hall for the symposium.
This would be followed by an official launch of all three projects donated to the college by our class.
“Recall that due to inadequacies of the school’s waste disposal system designed for a far smaller population, the Class of 88, last year raised and deployed N15 million for the redesign and refurbishment of the waste management facility.
The project, funded by the class and in commemoration of our 30th anniversary graduation from the college, is one of the three to be launched during the celebrations.”
Another member of the committee, Emeka Oragwu, said there would be a live performance of Dike Chukwumerije’s “Made in Nigeria” – a 120-minute depiction of 102 years of Nigeria’s history through poetry, dance and drama at the school’s assembly hall.
