Responding to questions, Dr. Kayode Fayemi called on the Alumni members to continue taking notes of the WHO protocols as regards the COVID-19 pandemic regulations in the process of exchanging pleasantries during the course of the week-long activities marking the 40th anniversary.

He commended the principals of both the Christ Boys School and the Christ Girls School for doing well as well as their Students for showing understanding.

He used the opportunity to announced that out of the 210 Secondary Schools in Ekiti State, that his government has successfully returned six back to their original owners in which the Anglican Communion in the State has already taken over the control of the two Christ Schools for boys and girls.

The Governor, however, frowned at the decision of the leadership of the Anglican Communion in Ekiti State to change to the School’s uniform and some other ideals that the Christ Schools are well known for, statewide and nationally from time immemorial.

Some of the members of the Alumni Association who spoke at the Press Conference appealed to the Governor to tackle the issue of insecurity and thugs invading the premises of Christ Girls School headlong by ensuring adequate security measures are put in place and that perimeter fences are also built around the Schools.

In his own remarks, the President for the 1976/1981 set, Mr. Olukayode Olakunle congratulated the members for coming back for the School’s Reunion and Homecoming after 40/41 years. He also praised the Christ School’s Family for a job well done in upgrading the road that leads to the Principal’s office and the ongoing renovation at a section in the Christ Girls School.

Also speaking with mediamen after the conference, a member of the 1975/1980 set and the current Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Netherlands, Ambassador Dr. Mrs. Eniola Ajayi stated that when she was President of the 1975/1980 set, that she was the one who renovated the Girls’ Section of the School and bought a coaster bus at the tail end of her tenure.

She counselled other members of the Alumni Association to always ensure they contribute their own quota to the growth and development of the schools whenever they have the opportunity to do so.
