Anglican School’s one-day principal tasks FG on abducted students

by Church Times

The one-day principal of  Anglican Comprehensive High School, Ipaja, Lagos, Ndieze Chinonzo Chibueze has called on the federal government to speed up action in ensuring the release of the students who were recently abducted in Kaduna and Borno States.

Chibueze made the call on March 11, 2024, shortly after conducting his official duties as principal.


Excellent performance

The Board and Management of the school in a bid to celebrate academic excellence and motivate its students for future leadership roles appointed Chibueze, a Senior Secondary School student, Chibueze , as a One-Day Principal of the school.

This is in recognition and celebration of his academic brilliance.  He had six distinctions from seven subjects in the last Cambridge O Level Examinations. Cambridge O Level Examination is an internationally recognized qualification equivalent to Cambridge IGCSE and the UK GCSE which provides learners with excellent preparation for Cambridge Advanced as well as other progression routes.

Security crisis

While lamenting the spate of kidnappings around the country, particularly the recent abduction of school children by armed bandits in Kaduna and Borno States, Chibueze called on the federal government and Nigeria’s security agencies to urgently secure the release of the innocent children and ensure they are reunited with their parents.

He says, “While it is important to commend the efforts of both the federal and state governments in tackling issues of insecurity in the country, it is equally important to say that all security agencies in the country must be adequately prepared to proactively deal with future occurrences.

“It is also a delight to note that Nigeria’s current Inspector General of Police, Mr. Kayode Egbetokun is an alumnus of this great school and I have no doubt that he will live up to the ethos and principles of the school.”

Chibueze praised the school authorities for the honour done to him and his colleagues by the school authorities.

He used the occasion to admonish his colleagues to focus more on their studies and shun any form of anti-social behaviour that may truncate their dreams.

He said the experience he earned as a one-day school principal has exposed him to leadership traits that will positively shape his future endeavours.

Present at the event were parents of the students appointed as school principal, vice-principal, and other key school principal officers. The entire student population, staff, and management were on hand to celebrate and rejoice with the student leaders’.

In his address, the Principal of the school, The Ven. Joseph Adedeji stated that with the 50th Anniversary celebrations held last year, it is remarkable that ACHS, Ipaja is holding the maiden edition of the One-Day School Principal programme to mark the beginning of its 51st year of existence.

“The One-Day School Principal programme, expected to be a yearly affair, is designed to celebrate and promote academic excellence amongst the students on one hand, and also, more importantly, to inculcate leadership skills in the students and prepare them for future endeavours,” the principal said.

While regretting the recent abduction of students in Borno and Kaduna States by armed bandits, Ven. Adedeji called on security agencies to work in synergy and be alive to their responsibility of protecting the lives and property of the people.
