Dr. Fayemi stated this on Saturday at Christ’s School, Ado Ekiti
during the commissioning of the renovated Archive/Museum building by
the Class of 1967/71 in commemoration of their 50th year of their
graduation from the School. He called on old students to always give
back to their alma-mater in order to ensure continuity of development
in the school.

While commending the set for the wonderful work they are doing to
elevate the school, especially fixing a project that binds all
students together, the Governor assured them that he would rally
support for them to ensure that they complete all they set their minds
to do for the school.

Commissioning the project in the presence of the Speaker of Ekiti
State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Funminiyi Afuye, Secretary to the
State Government, Mr Biodun Oyebanji and former Deputy Governor of
Ekiti State, Prof. Modupe Adelabu, Dr Fayemi also charged both old and
current students of the school to ensure that they are not
disconnected from the tradition that binds them together and which had
made Christ School a citadel of learning for ages.

“And now that we have returned the school back to its original owner,
the way old students are really competing healthily to pull back to
the school is something I find most remarkable and my set is also
involved in the competition as we have tarred the two roads in the
boys and girls sections and I think the set after us did the old sick
bay and now you are doing this. If we all pull back little by little,
we would not only rekindle what this place used to be, we would have a
brand new school we would be proud to send our children back to.

“One thing binds us, it is the tradition that this school has, that is
all we all are inbuild with, the tradition of excellence, tradition of
God-fearing and the tradition of discipline in everything that we did
while we were here and that is why you have not forgotten your
connection to Christ School.

“So, what you are doing is worthy of emulation, I am sure other sets
will hear about it and they would find a way to put back to the
school. I mean we must consider the current principal of the school to
be particularly lucky to be experiencing this rebirth, this renewal of
Christ School as it used to be.”

Earlier in his welcome address, the Chairman, Planning Committee, Dr
Charles Akinola noted that the building was the heartbeat of Christ
School as the archive was modelled in an effort to preserve, re-enact
and showcase the rich history of the school.

Dr Akinola assured the governor that immediately after the
commissioning, the Union set would kick start the second phase of the
project which would include equipping the archive with archival
materials, construction of the quadrangle complex including the
adjoining classrooms.

He called on all alumni to continue to support the school to enable it
achieve all its lofty ideas in conducive and technologically friendly
