By Friday Idachaba

“One of such was the late Alhaji Bello Ipemida Ochi (the father of His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello) may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

“Many God reward him for his love for the children of other parents he laboured to cater for while in the school as an employee, Amen.

“The school where Pa Bello’s humane attributes were exhibited and remembered might no longer exist as it is currently being proposed to be a military barracks.

“We wish to use this medium to appeal to you to use your good offices to ensure that the school is spared and retained so that it can continue to turn out quality products with legacies as an institution of repute.”, the alumni added.

The association used the occasion to thank Gov. Bello for the appointment of Prof. Salawu Sadiku, an old student of the school, as pioneer Vice-Chancellor of Confluence University of Science and Technology (CUSTECH), Osara in the Central Senatorial District of Kogi.
