    The Old Boys Association of the Government College Ughelli (GCUOBA), has commissioned three classrooms blocks building renovated, and  donated a 3.5KVA solar power system to the school.
    They also bought and handed over to the school leadership and management  a modern piano to their Alma mater in Ughelli, Delta State.
    The donation was made  as part of the activities marking the class’ 40th graduation anniversary.
    Barr. Larry Ovwromoh, the Chairman of the Government College Ughelli Old Boys Association (GCUOBA) Class of 1974 said, “this gesture is a way of giving back to the school which laid a solid foundation for us.
    He decried the drop in quality education across the nation. Ovwromoh expressed the association’s rediness to partner with the government to ensure that the school remains top among colleges in the country.
    He said:  “we are here as classmates to celebrate our 40th graduation from the school, because of what the GCU did for us, we are here to give back. 
    “This is why we renovated this block of three classrooms and bought a piano for the school. Because music is a major part of the school idea, and we also provided solar system for the sick bay.

    “On the aesthetics, they have tried to maintain the beauty of the place but as to quality of studies, I think there is a general decline, not just with GCU, but all over the country. 
    “There has been a steady decline. The attitude of students to learning has also changed drastically. We are now in the digital age where methods of learning involve audiovisuals than actual reading and writing. 
    “The old boys as a body have identified that issue and we are trying to pick up the teaching method and facilities by even providing extra teachers for lessons for the students to assist them in their final exams.
    “We are thinking that there is a need to partner with government to be involved in the admission process to filter those who are not supposed to be here. The teachers that come’s here should be deliberately selected so that we can have qualified teachers for the school.”
    Mr Onwah Isaac who is an old student of Government College Ughelli, when commissioning the Project said, “we are giving these iteams to make learning easier/meaningful for the students and staff of this college. 
    “I encouraged you the students of this college to take your studies seriously, i am assuming you that the 1974 Class will continue to support the school”.
    The principal of the college, Mr Ezekiel Akpeti, in his remakes said, “I commend you the Old Boy’s  for this donations, am assuring you that I will continue to ensure that the school maintains its academic status of excellence for producing great men in the society”.
