FROM: Barr. Kingsley Essien (Global President, BIFOBA )
TO: All members of BIFOBA
My dear Brothers,
Welcome to the month of October. October is a very important month in the history of our great country – Nigeria. This is the month that Nigeria, our dear Country got her independence. Our Country is now 56 years old. Your Alma Mater, is also 56 years old. As we celebrate Nigeria, for remaining as one nation up to 56 years, let us also celebrate our Alma Mater and by extension, ourselves for having attended a school that shares the same age with Nigeria. Congratulations.
