The National President, Methodist High School Owo Old Students’ Association, Akinola Osuporu, has decried the sorry state of Methodist High School Owo, Ondo State.

Osuporu reacted to the poor state of facilities at the school in his New Year Message to members of the association.

Osuporu, who said the association is saddened by the deteriorating condition of the school blamed the Ondo State government for failing to perform its responsibilities.

While imploring members of the association not to relent in the spirit of benevolence of saving the school from total collapse, he pledged to judiciously utilise all funds to revive the institution.

His words: “As we are aware, the Ondo State Government is completely overwhelmed by the challenges of Governance, particularly with paucity of funds, and have abdicated its responsibilities of the running of our school effectively.

“In essence, for MHSO to keep moving forward, and be relevant in the upbringing of our youths in the school system, we need more funds; we need more teachers, and we need more physical developments in tandem with modernity.

“Before the end of the first quarter, we hope to do a documentary on MHSO, to show the sorry state of our beloved School. Save for the intervention of the Old Students’ Association, the whole system would have collapsed by now.

“I implore that we should not relent in the spirit of benevolence. It is in our benefaction that we can change the narrative of our Alma Mater. I appeal to all of us, Sirs and Mas, not to be tired in the cause of resuscitating our Alma Mater, from its decaying state.

“I pledge once again, on behalf of the Executive Committee, that all monies contributed towards this revival, will be utilised judiciously and accounted for at all times.”
