The commissioning of the newly constructed principal’s block in Igoba Community High School in Akure has added another feather to the cap of the Principal of the school, Dr Grace Ibrahim who has been described as a change agent.
Commissioning the project, Permanent Secretary, Ondo State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mrs Lola Amuda said the school has improved tremendously under the leadership of the principal.
Amuda who was represented by the Director of Schools Services in the ministry, Dr Akindele Ige said the project will solve some of the problems of accommodation in the school.
While assuring that government will intervene in schools’ development, he called on other principals in the state to emulate what the principal has done and solve some of their problems within the limited resources available to them.
“She managed the fund at her disposal very well. Other principals should do something and should not be waiting for government because government alone cannot do it. Government knows what to do and it is planning to intervene”, he said.
Akure North Area Education Officer, Mrs R . M Ojo who also commended Ibrahim for putting up the project said everything about the school has changed for the better since she assumed office as the principal of the school.
She said her forthrightness has helped her to achieve the feat and expressed joy that this is happening in one of the schools under her jurisdiction.
The Principal of the school, Ibrahim said the project became necessary because the location of the former principal’s office was concealed and not good for monitoring of movement of students, staff and visitors.
“When I got here about two years ago, I discovered that the former principal’s office was hidden and we were also short of classrooms and some offices. So I decided that putting up a modern block will create more classrooms and offices”, she said.
Ibrahim who said the project was made possible by the approved running grants and other claims, noted that the construction lasted for one year.
On the a academic performances of the students, Ibrahim said one can judge from the results she met on ground when she came and the recent ones.
“As they perform very well in school, so they are performing very well in competition. I release them to participate in competitions, I coach and support them, I even finance them. My teachers too are hardworking and supportive and to the glory of God, one of the students will be representing the state in Abuja in Mathematics competition,” she disclosed.
Also commending the principal, Olu of Abusoro, Chief Olumide Afe who was represented by Adebisi Afe urged her to continue the good work for the sake of the students.
