The Old Girls Association of the Federal Government Girls College (FGGC), Gboko, Benue State, Class of 1991, has formally presented a renovated Charity House, a hostel block, to the school’s management.

According to the association, the decision to renovate the hostel was borne out of the urgent need to salvage some of the structures had become dilapidated and unsafe for habitation by young female students as part of activities set aside to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the association.

Speaking on the occasion, Class of ‘91 Project Management Team Leader, Mrs. Chisom Ajaero, said: ‘As we commemorate the 25th-year milestone since leaving school, we learnt of the deplorable and unhygienic conditions of some hostels and welfare facilities. We were moved to tears as to what had become of our great school, and we were confronted with the magnitude of neglect of this once prestigious learning institution and even more importantly, the imminent threat to healthy living and academic achievements of students in the school.”

Ajaero added: “Whilst recognising that the responsibility to improve and maintain living and learning conditions in the school is not our association’s primary responsibility, the current situation serves as a call to action to give back to this learning institution as products. Thus, the selfless contributions from our sisters had culminated on this joyous occasion”.

Earlier, Mrs. Grace Danbaba, Principal, FGGC Gboko expressed at the completion of the renovation work on the hostel, saying the seed that was nurtured in the hearts of the students had thus grown into the numerous intervention projects being carried out by the alumni.

Mr. Frank Omale, a director in the Federal Ministry of Education also commended the Class of ’91 alumni for their selfless benevolence to their Alma Marta and assured the students of government’s continued investment aimed at improving the quality of education and infrastructure in the country.

Blessing Kave, the school’s Head Girl, in a vote of thanks thanked the Class of ’91 for their selfless service saying the students will never forget the gesture and will also emulate the spirit of giving back even after they leave the school.
