GCI Principal Celebrates One Year In Office, Pays A Courtesy Visit To His Predecessor


As part of the colourful activities lined up for the celebration of One year in office of the 29th Principal of Government College Ibadan, Dr Tunde Odekunle (1976), the Principal, alongside the School Press Club and top officials of the School visited one of his predecessors, in person of Mr. John Olasupo Molomo at his residence in Erunmu, Oyo State.

Mr. John Olasupo Erunmu, an Old Boy of Government College Ibadan of the 1942 Set, was the third Old Boy of the School to serve as Principal of the School. He served between 1976 and 1978. It was under his administration that the present GCI Principal, Dr Tunde Odekunle gained admission to GCI in 1976. The Young Girl of the nonagenarian was also his Teacher at GCI between 1972 and 1975, she was a Yoruba Language Teacher.

The former Principal and his Young Girl, received the celebrant and his team with gladness and cheerfulness. He admonished the GCI Boys to face their studies squarely, and desist from any form of social vices. He quoted a line from the School song that stated that "By order, justice and fair play rule" to give a managerial advise to the Principal. Pa. Molomo reminisced about his good old days, both as a student, and Principal at GCI with the visitors. He noted that he was proud to have sent all his boys to Government College Ibadan for their secondary school education, that GCI is a model college, and a school to reckon with. He mentioned it that one of his happiest days as a Principal of his Alma Mater was the day P.B. Oyebolu (1947) (now a Patron of GCIOBA) presented to him the key of a brand new 32-Seater Coaster Bus, bought for the School.

At the end, Swanston House song, the House song of the ninety-four years old ancient Old Boy was sung. The Host and Hostess wished the Principal a tenure filled with terrific exploits and outstanding breakthrough. They also wished the members of the school's Press Club success in their academics. Pa. Molomo commended the Old Boys Association for their tremendous intervention in reviving the School, and prayed for complete restoration of the lost glory of his beloved Alma Mater.
