“I have also given out over N30million in cash to the less-privileged and the elderly. We are happy doing this and will continue to do more, trusting God to reward us in his own way.

Appreciating the benefactor for the gesture, Principle of the School, Ify Felicia Agu, described the structure as ultra-modern hostel facilities with attached caregivers sections and kitchen for pupils and students.

“Part of the official commissioning were set of sewing machines for practical training, renovation of classroom and office block, payment of incentive of N30, 000 as motivation for the entire staff of the school and compilation of SSCE (WAEC) for the year 2023,” she added.
