He admonished the leadership to set up a committee or task force to oversee the affairs and the compliance of schools to the COVID-19 guidelines after the reopening of schools.

The Ogun President of NAPPS who also doubles as the Proprietor, Paragon International Schools, Dr. Lawrence Holumidey expressed how glad he is for the visitation of the students leadership.

He charged the leadership to maintain a cordial relationship with his personality even after his tenure as the NAPPS President.

NAPPS President charged the students leaders to be sincere with all what they do, saying that they are the main point of target for developing a nation.

According to him, it is very important for you to work hard and be ready to serve diligently.

The Akeweje as he is fondly called also pledged his support to the students’ leadership and the body as a whole.

The NAPPS President in his concluding remarks charged the visiting Students leaders to put more efforts in their mission so as to be seen as an epitome of a good leadership for the upcoming ones.
