The King’s College Old Boys’ Association has called on the Federal Government to improve on the management and infrastructure of King’s College, Lagos.
The call was made during a press conference to announce the programmes for the 112th anniversary of the college scheduled between September 17 and 19, 2021.
The Chairman of the organising committee for Kings week 2021, Mr Chuma Anosike, said KCOBA had contributed immensely to the development of the school.
He added, “The Association has as one of its top priorities for the year – the engagement of the Federal Government for an improved management structure for the college.
“Recall that deliberations have been holding on Public-Private-Partnership model as an elixir for funding education and the association has on its part set up two endowment funds, both of which are poised to ensure a proper and sustainable funding structure for the college under the proposed arrangement.”
He hinted that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila; the Director General of the World Trade Organisation, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala; a former governor of Anambra State , Mr Peter Obi; the Secretary of the Northern Elders Forum, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed; and a former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Bagudu Hirse, would be part of the anniversary symposium.
