He also appealed to all the sets of ex-students to accept the newly initiated commandos and be carrying them along in all programmes and meetings so as to be united and pursue a common goal.
“The essence of such commando meetings is to encourage and support every old student in the pursuit of their ambitions. Therefore, I hand you over to the fourth generation of commandos to nurture and protect you as you go into the world you know nothing about.”
The Commandant of the school Lt. Col. Femi Oduyemi emphasised that discipline is one of the keywords students should embrace as they go into the larger society.
