Current head school who incidentally is a biological son of the founder, Alfred Aina, expressed his joy and appreciation to the organisers of the initiative.

An excited Mr Aina said “we welcome the noble idea as given by the organisers and we are happy that one of our illustrious daughters in the person of popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, will be coming over to contribute her quota to the development of the school. We are appealing to others to emulate her.”

There will be a CBS after party to celebrate the actress, create a convivial atmosphere for her to unwind with friends and put her on the spot for a no holds barred interactive session.
