I am very impressed with this site. Its a bit curious that a very small percentage of alumni are actually active. We need to engage more people to visit the site. I will inform most of my comlag contacts, i urge you all to do same. Best of luck.

Suzzie thats the spirit we need to make it work. Sophia and others thanks for the commendations. I am certain, Sophie, that when the time comes God will raise through you a sweeter and more beautiful family so that your joy may be full..... just hold onto Him in Jesus name.

We need all hands together to make our Alumni a success story. It calls for sacrifice of our time, resources and intellect. We need to tell everyone about this site and the association. We can do it......

Lets all meet at the year ending celebration on the 18th..... Please tell others

It is the season of the year that most, if not all of us, try to become better, if only to show that we care at least once a year.  Here is hoping that we have a Christmas heart every day.

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all COMMANDOS !!

After this Uncle Jona New Year subsidy blues, I pray we all continue the struggle to battle and expose corruption and the looting of our collective patrimony wherever we encounter it in the polity. We need to leave a lasting legacy of a corruption free united Nigeria for our children.

Amazing! What happened here? Last post was early 2013 & since then, no more posts. Haba, my co Commandos, arise! Not in rhetorics, but in reality. I think this Alumni will work, when we actually exhibit the 'comrado' spirit across board. We may need to buy wisdom from well established Alumnis. Our conviviality should be with utmost genuine intention. More Grace to those who have laboured to see it work to this point. "Without Prejudice"

Alaba Oduniyi (1982)

Hi all,

Good this was re-ignited by Felix. God bless you sir.

Calling on all to freely use this forum to connect across board.

Things are beginning to look brighter for the association. We however need inclusiveness. To date we have just 10% of uploaded commandos signed up on this site. 

I implore all to tell someone to tell someone to tell.............and we sure will get the numbers.''The more the merrier'' they say.

The general meeting holds on the 28th of June 2015 at the INDOOR SPORTS HALL, UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS, AKOKA.

Expecting to see you all.

Duru Richard (1982)

Felix good to hear from you. I guess you are still in Lagos. Am currently in Bonny Camp. Yes old Bonny Camp. I know you recollect with fun memories. To our able leader Alaba, I hope to attend the scheduled meeting. Best wishes to all in this period of CHANGE.

14/06/15 11:42 PM #29    

Nwachukwu Felix (1982)

Hey! Gudevening, my brother, the General. Glad to hear that you are in Lagos now. I'm briefly out of town, but will be back on time for the June 28th meeting. We will sure catch up there.

@ Alaba, Presido, I think you should use your respected office to put a call across to the 'big boys' to personally  inform & invite them. Particularly against the back drop that there is not much traffic on this website. I look forward to great time on that day.

More Grace sirs

Ogolo Segun (1986)

A lot of "chatter" happens amongst many of us on Facebook. The key is to direct some of that traffick in this direction so we can have some real family talk. For example, e get one guy wey don dey annoy me, but by God's grace l go catch am during our meeting of 28th June.lol.

Chijioke Ezekiel (Ezeh) (1997)

Brethren, very good morning to you all.

My name is Chijioke E Ezeh ('97 Set). I would most appreciate 2 minutes of your precious time.

I have had several challenges lately with reaching you all until I stumbled on my login details to this platform this morning. In fact I had composed a letter I wanted to send to some of us that I knew how to reach personally.

I head a very small commitee of the Graduating Class of '97 and we are trying to raise fund for one of us, Akuwa Joy Adejo, who has been been battling umbilical hernia for the past 15 months at least. It has been a super daunting task raising funds biweekly for her dialysis at the NARH Yaba. The total of which comes to about N60,000 monthly!

Fortunately, in conjunction with her case doctor, Dr. Abiola Kareem, we have been able to secure a hospital/doctor in India to perform the necesary surgery (or surgeries) for her treatment and eventual cure. The current estimate stands at $15,000 but it could be more. However, the Indian doctors have indicated that payment may be made in tranches per milestone.

I had spoken with Yemi Mac-Gregor ('88 Set) who had helped me with more insight and advised me to reach out to us before going public, if need be. And that is why I am writing this to you here as opposed to reaching you individually.

Out of respect for the dignigty of the lady in question, we had agreed to not splash her photographs all over the internet. She may be indigent and needy of our assistance but we didn't think it would be appropriate to assault benefactors with her pictures. But I can send her pictures, contact details and communication with the Indian hospital for your perusal; plus, the contact details of the Nigerian doctor at the military hospital, Yaba. Time is really critical in saving her life. Here's my email: chijiokeezeh@gmail.com and number: 07030073908 08122960582.

Please see her account details below for the funds we are raising:

Akuwa Joy Adejo; 0128095253; GTB Plc

Trusting us to join hands in saving her life!

PS: I will be at the meeting this June.

We should real make this work! After all the effort put in by those who set up this platform it would be a shame for US not to capitalize on it, with a view to doing some good.

"INSURANCE is the equitable transfer of the risk of a loss, from one entity to another in exchange for money. It is a form of risk management primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent, uncertain loss.

It can also mean to pay a lump sum to get a leverage or protection against an incident of any magnitude at all so when (an) unexpected or even expected misfortune(s) is/are encountered, the insurer can step in, helping out to sail through the experience.

Insurance is a form of risk management in which the insured transfers the cost of potential loss to another entity in exchange for monetary compensation known as the premium.

Insurance allows individuals, businesses and other entities to protect themselves against significant potential losses and financial hardship at a reasonably affordable rate.

It is also known as INDEMNITY"....

Why all these definitions we may ask.

The reason is that sometime ago, a proposal was circulated across the secretariat of many alumni bodies including ours and was looked through by authorities in the house who commended the idea but knew that it was actually not for the now but probably later in the future.

This piece is just to sensitize us all of the fact that there can be a lot of synergy between THE ALUMNI MOVEMENT AND THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY.

Some of us might be insurance aware while others may not be.

Some of us might even just have been hearing that word since "only God knows when" but what it is about we may even not know.

A number of us may even be in the practice as ones who have decided to take it up as a profession, discipline or career.

Another number of us might have even studied it while in Secondary or even Tatiary Schools but have dropped it and opted for other trades.

Some of us might even be Insurance Lecturers with certificates, diplomas, degrees, higher degrees in it passing all learnt and known to scholars, pupils and students.

Some of us might have even sat or are at the moment sitting for the professional examination in a bid qualify and become chattered.

Some of us might be in professions that the Insurance Business requires such as Accounting/ Accountancy, Human Relations, Public Relations, Information and Communications Technology, Computer Science and Engineering as well as other relevant branches of Engineering.

And a few of us may even be Insurance Officers in other field of endeavor.

Whichever category we find ourselves, the truth is THE INSURANCE BUSINESS is hyper relevant to everyone, everywhere and every time.

A number of us in our privacies, works, homes and so on might have even had causes to take the policies no matter how little. All of us who are privileged to be using cars have if not the COMPREHENSIVE COVER, the THIRD PARTY COVER (it is compulsory in Nigeria and it should be in every nation across the earth.

So please all, this is just a sensitization forum to place in the consciousness of all that it is a possibility. But like every project and pursuit, there is a beginning, commencement and a start.

That beginning, commencement and start will be discussed in the future.

Just for the know, some other Alumni Bodies especially have been encouraging their members to embrace insurance, take insurance policies under as many covers they can afford including those of their alumni bodies....

We will continue from here subsequently by GOD'S Grace...

On a light and humorous note, many of us will often say "God is the only sure and Divine, Heavenly and Celestial insurance cover".

yes He is but it still pays to have the Terrestrial, Earthly and Human one.

Thank you all and let us all ENSURE AND BE SURE we are all INSURED AND ASSURED....

38th Founders Day Anniversary....

On Tuesday, September 29; 2015, every alumnus who is chanced is invited to be part of the program that will constitute the annivasery of the school.

(The idea behind this is to begin a process leading to the 40th annivasery and not waiting till then and taking advantage of the fact that things are currently looking up for the house, its members, the school vis a vis relationships that exist between them )

So we are looking at having programs such as:-

A Road Show within the school premises and neighboring areas

Walks which will be sees as CHARITY WALK, UNITY WALK and SOLIDARITY WALK.

Interactive Sessions between the Alumni Body and Students Body to include Novelty Sports and Games between the Alumni

Public / Anniversary Lecture which will have either a Public figure, a formal staff of the School or even any brother or sister amongst us deliver

Presentations of gifts to the school by those sets and classes marking their anniversary re-unions this year such as 1980 - 1985, 1990 - 1995, 1999 - 2005, 2009 - 2015 and so on.

Facility tour around the school

Debates

Quiz

All these are in the pipeline for the day.

More suggestions are needed by everyone.

World Teachers' Day, also known as International Teachers Day, is held annually on October 5 since 1994, commemorates teacher organizations worldwide. Its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers

 

According to UNESCO, World Teacher's Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding, and appreciation displayed for the vital contributions that teachers make to education and development.

Education International (EI) (the global union federation which represents education professionals worldwide) strongly believes that World Teachers' Day should be internationally recognized and celebrated around the world. EI also believes that the principles of the 1966 and 1997 Recommendations should be considered for implementation in all nations.

Over 100 countries observe World Teachers' Day. The efforts of Education International and its 401 member organizations have contributed to this widely spread recognition. Every year, EI launches a public awareness campaign to highlight the contributions of the teaching profession and practice.

 

We need to look back through time, to the past and into our history to Celebrate the Impact of TEACHERS, TUTORS, LECTURERS, TRAINERS and COACHES in our lives and in our upbringing.

 

They may be no more

They might have called it quit from the job or thrown in the towel at work

They might have retired or about to

They might have changed profession, practice, location and so on

They might still be in service

They might still be under tutilage or in training

They might not yet have been born

This is looking back at the past, then the present and foward to the future.

We salute them all all the time.

HAPPY TEACHERS' DAY.

World Teachers Day 2016: 12 Quotes And Inspirations Sayings To Celebrate Educators Across The Globe

NOTHING IS TO MUCH FOR THE PROFESSORS IN THE PROFESSION OF BREEDING PROFESSIONALS... AND ALSO INTELLECTUALS....

Wednesday OCTOBER 5, 2016 happened to be World Teachers Day, an occasion to celebrate all of those who shape the minds of  generations. 

World Teachers Day was created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1994 to celebrate the educators of the world. The global holiday is held on Oct. 5 each year in recognition of the special intergovernmental conference convened by UNESCO in Paris that adopted the UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers on that date in 1966. The recommendation declared education a fundamental human right, acknowledged the essential role of teachers to society, set international standards and defined teachers' responsibilities. 

For most, Oct. 5 is just a day to pay their teachers a little bit of extra gratitude for shaping their lives and minds and those of their children. UNESCO holds an annual conference in Paris where it hands out the Hamdan Prize awards, but the organization recommends those who can not attend the Paris event take the opportunity "to discuss, compare, learn, argue, share and improve" wherever they are in the world.

 

As ALUMNI and Members of various ALUMNI HOUSES including this one, We honor them from time immemorial as we have been honoring them and will continue to honor them till time everlasting.
