Addressing the graduating students, Fr. Francis Eyo MSP said "when they were going to school they gave them three months and many came back like domes".

"Others would study hard during the summer holiday and would do well. No knowledge is a waste. We want to make this centre a year round centre of learning. How I wish facilities would be opened to all," he said.
