Tinubu, Jakande, others to be honoured at Bishop Howells 40th founder’s day celebration

Bishop Howells Memorial Grammer School, Lagos, has concluded plans to hold its 40th founder’s day anniversary.

The week-long programme is expected to begin on September 28 and  end with the grand finale on October 3.

The school’s Chairman, Board of Governors, Oluseyi Ogungbe, at a press conference during the week for the unveiling of the celebration logo, said “Bishop Howells is the 3rd of the four schools that emerged from the prestigious CMS Grammar School on  October 3, 1980, others being Ajayi Crowther Grammar School, CMS Girls’ Grammer School and St. Luke’s Grammar School.


The school principal, Ven. Tunde Oduwole, noted it would be honouring Alhaji Lateef Jakande, first civilian governor of Lagos State whose administration  founded the school; Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu under whose tenure the policy of returning schools to their original owners was carefully conceived.

Among others for honour are 40 eminent personalities, including five proprietor-bishops, retired and serving bishops, board members, former principals, old staffers, old students and worthy parents.
