Ekpoma 13th April 2021


The prestigious Ujoelen Secondary Grammar Ekpoma, a foremost secondary school in Esanland is receiving an infrastructural facelift courtesy of the Old Students Association, who has commenced the construction of a perimeter fence round the school to prevent Intruders from gaining uncontrolled access to the facility and also to prevent encroachment.

This was disclosed to Radio Esan by Mr. Mike Eraga, the president of the Ujoelen Grammar School Ekpoma Old Boys Association (UGSEOBA) following the commencement of work.

Mr Eraga said “the decision to assist the academic and infrastructural development of the old school came up in our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on April 3rd, 2021 where we took a decision to build a perimeter fence for the school to prevent incursion and external encroachment. Same day April 3rd, 2021, a ground breaking/foundation ceremony was performed and Chemistry textbooks were donated to the school”, he disclosed.

Mr Eraga added “right now, workers are on site for the fencing project. So much to still be done in the school to be repositioned to regain it’s lost glories. We are soliciting all other Old Boys to join hands and support this work to return the school to the good old days”, he appealed.

This is quite commendable but the association should make concerted efforts to reach out to other prominent old boys of our beloved Ujoelen Grammar School, Ekpoma. A lot of us were home during the Easter break but didn’t know about the said meeting held on the 3rd of April. Now that the Executive is supposedly in place, more engagements should be undertaken to bring most interested old boys on board please
