“Unity Schools epitomise the dream of a united Nigeria and a Nigeria where every child irrespective of the socio-economic situation, geography, language and, ability deserves a decent education. I really enjoyed the cooperation and support of the USOSA EXCO, NEC, the National Leadership of all Old Students’ Associations, including of my alma mater Queen’s College Lagos.”

On new board chairman, Akpata, the former chairman described him as one that is passionate about the continued development of unity schools across the country.
