F. G. C. Idoani, We Greet Thee…

FGC Idoani, I greet thee!

FGC Idoani, we greet thee
FGC Idoani, we love thee
To show academic excellence: this is our goal
The unity of our dear nation: this is our pride

And due respect to our government, this we shall keep
The beauty of good behaviour, we shall uphold
We greet thee, dear principal
We hail thee, all our staff

And we will always keep in mind, FGC Idoani
Yes, this will be our source of pride, FGC Idoani!”

(… and then the usual noise after the anthem, remember? Any errors in the anthem, mine and regretted — 1994 was 12 years ago 😉)

See you in Idoani, if you ever had the privilege of attending the school I refer to as the training ground 😉 The enthronment and celebration of academic excellence, Nigeria’s unity, promotion of good governance, insisting on good behaviour, honour to the dutiful teachers/administrators, the love for FGC Idoani, and the pride we have in her training should move us to act. Reunion 2006 is the opportunity, February 25, 2006 is the date. Great, old FGC Idoani is the place. You and I are the people… let’s make it happen!

Eager to see you there…
