He commended the achievements of his predecessor, Mr. John Onobote FCA, for fulfilling the mandates given to it by the Annual General Meeting, culminating in the election of members of the new Executive. He thanked him for personally bearing the cost of digitizing the school register from inception in 1962 up to year 2002.
