It was a memorable gathering when Ansar-Ud-Deen High School Old Students’ Association (AHOSA) , Falolu, Suru-Lere, decided to host and honour the outgoing principal of the schools.

In recognition of their tremendous contribution to their great school, Lagos, Nigeria and humanity in general, AHOSA organised a retirement sendoff party for the two principals, the Principal, Ansar-Ud-Deen High School, Mrs Nimotallahi Folashade Moronkeji and the Principal Ansar-Ud-Deen Junior School, Mrs Afusat Abiodun Ogunbadero for their excellenct service to the school.

At the reception held in the school hall, family members of the outgoing principals, old students, teachers and students of the school gathered to pray for the principals. About 1700 students were fed while the students entertained the audience with choreography.

The National Missioner of Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, Sheikh Abdulrahman Ahmad, prayed for the outgoing principals.

He also commended the school for the peaceful transmission of power, as this is not so common in many institutions.

The Tutor General/Permanent Secretary, Education District IV, Mr Olusegun Osinaike, on behalf of the Lagos State Government, also praised the principals on the selfless service rendered to the state.

“They are outstanding educationists and an administrator per excellence and an unequalled mothers with the way they manage human and material resources to achieve great feats.”

He also commended the old students as they deemed it fit to honour the principals.

The president of AHOSA, Mr Rafiu Williams, said the surprise send-off party is a continuation of the intention of the old students to give back to their school.

“This is a continuation of what we have been doing, which is giving back to the school, appreciating those who have made huge contributions to the progress and development of the school.”

He described the sterling service of the two principals as one that will continue to have a far-reaching impact on the students in the school.

“The two outgoing principals have done excellently in the history of the school. So, we decided to show gratitude to them. During their tenure, we never had any adverse report or any negative report about the school either from external or internal sources. This is to say thank you and appreciate them, as they are living the school.

Former Principal of the school, Alhaja Wusamot Adegoke, prayed for the outgoing principals and charged the incoming principal, Mrs Shereefa Yusuf to build on the existing foundation build by her predecessor.

The First Vice President of AHOSA, Mrs Folashade Akindele, commended the outgoing principals for taking the school to a greater height and impacting sound academic and moral capacity on the school.

“We are very proud of the way that they managed our alma mater, on behalf of the old students, we say thank you and wish you well in your retirement.”

She added that there are numerous projects in the pipeline, which the old students are planning to do for the school.

She appealed to the government to rebuild the three-storey-building classrooms demolished as this has resulted in overcrowding in some classes.

Akindele, also commended all the teachers for their commitment and dedication to the school.
