During the ceremony, Mr. Omoruyi spoke with appreciation for the support from parents, old boys, government departments and Non Governmental Organisations, adding that such partnerships are "key to achieving effectiveness in all school learning." He added that education as a tool for National Development is an expensive venture that prompted the Federal government to recognise and solicit participation of private initiatives as stated in the National Policy of Education.
