I have been following the sequence of the School programme designed by the highly respected Old Boys Association.
However, I will like to suggest to my Alma matter of EBHS that strategies which might be considered.
(1.) As EBHS is looking forward to become a trust institution. There are Education funding trusts who are more committed to the progress of education, these are:
(a) British Nigeria Education Trust
(b) British National Council
(c) Education Trust Fund of Nigeria
(d) Wellcome Trust

There is an urgent need to rescue Eko Boys High School (EBHS) from the present decay. The school has suffered huge neglect since the forceful take over of all schools in 1979 by former governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande. To return EBHS back to its glorious past and meet the vision of its founder, Late Reverend Euba, there is an urgent need for the Old Boys to take urgent action.
To return the school to its previous enviable position before government control, EBHS need to be independent of government control. Like other schools returned to their previous owners by Lagos state government, EBHS need to be independent of government control hence the need to return the school back to its previous owner. As there is no particular individual or organisation that the school can be returned to, there is a need to set up a charitable trust to achieve this goal. A charitable trust needs to be set by the Old Boys that will take over the running of the school.
