USOSA tasks Nigerians on national integration

Unity Schools Old Students Association USOSA has urged the government at all levels to promote and sustain programmes that enhance unity to enable the country to achieve national integration.

This was a consensus among the Unity Schools Old Students Association USOSA, at the National Convention, of the Federal Government College Jos Old Association.

Presenting a paper on the theme of the convention, Nigeria’s Unity In The Midst Of National Insecurity Ad Global Dow-Turn, Commodore Salihu Jibril said the constitution must be appreciated by all Nigerians with amendments that reflect societal realities for development.

He also called for good leadership across all levels ‘” If we are able to live together in harmony, then we can have national integration, absence of national integration leads to insecurity because of suspicion, ethnic agitations, religious crisis that has bedevilled this country for long”
According to him, if we are able to have national integration, tolerate each other and live in harmony then there will be security in the country.

 
Improved Security
The President General of USOSA, Mr.

Lawrence Wilbert also called on the members at all levels to join hands with the Federal government to improve security in Nigeria.

According to Wilbert, ” the Federal government should rise to their responsibility we call on all Nigerians specifically USOSA members in the Executive, Legislature and the private sector, even our members in the CSOs to join hands with the FG to tighten security in Nigeria”
He also called for more collaboration with the federal government in the area of provision and strengthening of infrastructure/projects across Unity Colleges, to ensure a more coordinated process.

A pioneer student of the school, class of 1977 Ambassador Haruna Gilson said the Federal Government College Jos which was established in 1973 has developed both in infrastructure, quality of learning and students population.

Development Projects
The National President of the Federal Government College Jos Old Students Association Mr.

Michael Magaji said the alumni has executed over 25 development projects at the Federal Government College Jos, Plateau state under its developmental projects.

Mr.

Magaji said the theme was chosen to encourage Old students of Federal Unity colleges across the country to continue to promote peaceful coexistence for the development of the country.

‘’As students of Unity College Jos, we came from different backgrounds, brought up to appreciate Nigeria as a country, one country.

 
“We were trained to live together, to be peaceful, tolerate one another, to believe in leadership and excellence, so in a convention like this we like to emphasise and project this values that are key to nation-building, so anyone who went to a federal college or any of the 110 unity schools is sensitive to the peace and unity of the country’’.

 
He called on old boys to imbibe the culture of giving back by embarking of projects that would uplift the status of their Alma-mater.

“Some of the Projects include, the establishment of ICT Laboratory, Libraries and the remodelling of 400 bed hostels, 200 hundred for boys and 200 for girl”s.

The Principal of the School, Mrs.

Victoria Vou Pam who confirmed the projects carried out by Old students commended them for the giant strides towards repositioning their Alma-mater.

‘’ I stand very tall with my head held high having realized that the college has over the years turned out distinguished personalities who have carved a niche for themselves in all spheres of life in this country and abroad.

And most importantly you have not forgotten your Alma-matter as you have executed projects that are too numerous to be mentioned,’’ she said.

 
Mrs.

Pam noted that although much has been achieved, there are more areas in which the college needs urgent intervention.

She listed the needs to include a multi-purpose hall, renovation of staff quarters and supply of computer systems.
