Egbetokun visits alma mater, praises Anglican tradition
The students of the Anglican Comprehensive High School, Ipaja, Lagos (formerly known as Awori Comprehensive High School), are set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their school in September 2023. And to see the level of preparation, one of the old students, the Acting Inspector General of Police (AIGP), Mr. Kayode Egbetokun, last weekend, visited the school to liaise with others on the event.
Egbetokun, who was a 1979 set of the school, disclosed that his visit was not in connection with his new role as the Inspector General of Police, but as an alumnus and particularly as the chairman of the planning committee for the 50th anniversary celebration.
Commending the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) and the school management for keeping to the Anglican tradition of excellence, Egbetokun promised to contact friends and well wishers to support the school and improve its infrastructure.
The media consultant to the association, Tunji Oguntuase, in a statement said that the AIGP promised to take the matter as his personal responsibility to give prizes to the best behaved students and the best in mathematics for each class in every academic session.
Recalling his time at the school, Egbetokun expressed gratitude to God for the period he spent in the school and the impact the school had on him.
The National President, Reverend Femi Lapite, commended members of the management and assured them of the institution’s continuous support as indicated by the AIGP.
The Executive Secretary of Lagos Anglican School’s Management Board, The Ven. Ayo Olusa appreciated Egbetokun for coming and the entire executive members of the Old Students Association for their support and concern. He implored them never to lose sight of improving the infrastructural facilities of the school.
The principal of the school, The Ven. Joseph Adediji, enjoined the old students to support the school’s drive for development.
