By George Ariegwe
It was a moment of joy for Mr. Amos Mukoro, a retired Principal and immediate past Principal of Agbarho Grammar School, Agbarho in Ughelli North local government area when a send forth party was organised by the school in his honour
. The event which was held at the school premises was graced by Principals of various schools, educationists and friends
Speaking at the event, the guest speaker, Rev. Father Barnabas Esegine described Mr. Mukoro as a disciplinarian of a high repute who has paid his dues as far as the teaching profession is concern.
According to him, the qualities possessed by Mr. Mukoro in the present day Nigeria are not a mere feat, adding that the present record set by him is a enough to challenge any principal that is taking over from him.
Delivering her speech, the new Principal of the school, Mrs Judith Akpowoba Onoghojebi described the immediate past Principal of the School, Mr. Mukoro as a well groomed and seasoned school administrator, an educationist, a leader, bold and fearless, a goal getter, truthful and straight forward
She said, for Mr. Mukoro to have gotten to the zenith of his career, grade level 17 which according to her, is the highest position in the teaching career equivalent to the post of a Permanent Secretary either in the federal or state civil service one can attained.
Mrs Onoghojebi while praying to God to grant the retired Principal good health and long life, appealed to well meaning Agbarho sons and daughters that the school is in need of Volley ball pitch, table tennis, Lawn tennis court, tables and chairs for the library, tables and chairs for teachers.
Mr. Amos Mukoro, in his speech explained that it was no longer news that when he came to the school, everywhere was road in the school, but today the opposite is the case as the school now has a perimeter fence with a locked up gate which according to him, is the first and only school in Delta State with a perimeter fence and gate built through community and Principal’s effort.
He pointed out that the School was not a WAEC centre, but with the help of Mr.Onodjeje Victor, the school became a centre in 2016 for senior secondary school examination.” Today the School can also boost of electricity light. “When I came in there was no electricity light but by October, 2015 we were able to see light and we also acquired a pre-paid meter”, adding that the light should not have been possible if not for the effort of Chief Felix Oghenebrorhie Ofurhie, a teacher in the School who donated a concrete electric pole to the School.
Highpoint of the occasion was the cutting of the send forth cake by Mr. Mukoro assisted by Rev. Father Barnabas Esegine, Mrs Judith Onoghojebi, Mrs Efeurhobo, Chief Felix Ofurhie, Mr. Joseph Emovwoyan and others.
