Members of Community Secondary Grammar School (COSGRAMS) Ugep all-time alumni association have, yesterday, April 8th, 2021 chosen Chief Daniel Ubana, fcai, as their consensus president.
The association which prides membership of all ex-students of the school since its establishment in 1965 — 2 years after Nigeria became a republic, has old boys and girls of good repute in all walks of life; amongst whom are former governor of Cross River State, Dr. Clement Ebri, current Nigerian Ambassador to Italy, Amb. Mfawa Abam, to mention but a few.
Chief Daniel Ubana who was enrolled in COSGRAMS on the 18th of October, 1974 and finished thereafter on 26th June, 1979 emerged president of the association after his nomination by one of the union’s founding members, Miss Ikwo Florence Usani went uncountered but rather endorsed by all.
In his acceptance note, Chief Ubana promised to do his best to support the efforts already in place. His words;
“Let me thank all of you for this nomination and the subsequent endorsement as the President of this noble body of intellectuals.
“I appreciate you all and want to humbly say that I accept the responsibility to lead. I will do my best to support this effort to help bring back the glory of our school where we were all trained to be what we are today.
“In doing this, I will seek your support so that all of us will succeed at the end.
Let me thank Florence Usani for this wonderful initiative of hers. I thank you all and God bless,” Chief Ubana said verbatim.
