The newly elected national president of Ezemu Girls Grammar School Old Students Association (EGGSOSA), Ubulu-Uku in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta, Mrs. Rosemary Ofunne has pledged to work hard towards assisting the Girl-Child in the society to find her bearing in life through the instrumentality of education.
She has also vowed to join forces with well meaning individuals in the society to contribute towards the development of their college which is the only girls’ secondary school in the town even as EGGSOSA is also poised to give back to the Ubulu-Uku community.
Mrs. Ofunne who emerged as the first democratically elected national president of the old girls association of the 42-year-old college made the pledge recently in her acceptance speech after the election which was conducted virtually by the electoral committee set up by Ubulu-Uku Development Council led by Sir Jonathan Monye.
The new president, a graduate of Sociology has also promised to run a transparent administration with accountability and honesty as her mantra in all her dealings.
Speaking with AtlanticNewsonline on phone, Mrs. Rosemary Ofunne said “I have been prepared professionally with a Masters Degree in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution; Bachelor Degree in Sociology and National Diploma (Secretarial Studies and Public Administration) and hope to bring my knowledge to bear on the Association’s activities.”
She is an Associate Member of Chartered Institute of Personnel Management (CIPM) and Nigeria Institute of Management (NIM).
A business administration graduate from the University of Lagos, Mrs. Fidelia Enyi-Odia was elected as the Vice President in the keenly contested election while a Telecom engineer, Mrs. Philomena Ojini emerged the Secretary General.
Ojini holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye and later trained as Telecom engineer with TTC Mobile. She is to be assisted in running the Secretariat of EGGSOSA by Mrs. Chioma Chukwuma Innocent who holds a first degree in business administration from St. Paul University College, Awka. She is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Flourishing Limited.
A former aviation personnel (Air Hostess) Mrs. Edith Morkpai Onyekaba was elected as Financial Secretary. Onyekaba who graduated from the University of Benin with a Bachelor of Arts (Ed) in English and Literature and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Management from the University of Calabar has ventured into private business on disengagement from the aviation sector.
A United Kingdom based Mrs. Rosemary Nwugbana was elected Treasurer of the Association. She holds a Higher Nation’s Diploma (HND) in Town Planning from the Federal Polytechnic, Oko and had worked briefly with the Warri South Local Government Area before relocating overseas in 2007 where she is currently a social and healthcare worker in United Kingdom. She is also the Chief Executive Officer of Gorgeous Boutique in Asaba, Delta State.
While Mrs. Stella Jones-Ofunne; a graduate of Sociology from Nnamdi Azikiwe University emerged as EGGSOSA Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Judith Amagbakhen (Nee Okoh);
a graduate of Public Administration from Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma was elected Organising Secretary.
The Public Relations Officer; Mrs. Jones-Ofunne in addition to her first degree in Sociology also holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Benin
and she is currently Head of Personnel Management in Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State.
It would be recalled that last December the Old Students Association had a re-union during which some attempt was made to assist the College with the construction of Information, Communication Technology (ICT) Centre.
AtlanticNewsonline gathered that the project has not taken off, as the Care Taker Committee that put the re-union activities together has outlived its tenure. It is expected that the new leadership would hit the ground running as the College seriously needs some assistance.
