He emphasized, “We know there are many schools that the government needs to rebuild, but the government cannot do everything. That was why we decided to execute this project as a legacy and encouragement to other alumnus of Iganmode Grammar School’.
“This great institution has produced titans in academia, business tycoons, top politicians and profession experts in different fields of endeavors, we cannot therefore watch with folded arms as the school deteriorates. We have a lot of projects in the pipeline, and we hope with the cooperation of all our members and the national body of the old students association, we will be able to achieve more successes”, he said
