According to a statement from the media officer of Dr Goodluck Jonathan, it notes that activities lined up for the programme include a lecture, an excursion and a dinner and award night.

The statement also adds that the reunion programme is part of activities of the alumni aimed at improving bonds among old classmates and it provides a platform to deliberate on issues affecting their alma matter and ultimately giving back to the school and society in general.
