The election, which was keenly contested, was held at the school premises, Kuto, Abeokuta during general meeting of the Association.
The National President of the Association, Dr. Julius Soyinka while delivering his speech after the election, commended members for the high level of maturity displayed during the electoral process with the admonition that their commitment and contributions are pivotal to the growth and development of their alama mater. “It’s important for us to know that our commitment is critical in moving our school forward. Without St. John’s Anglican High School, all of us wouldn’t have been where and whom we are today, hence, it is important for us to give back to the school that moulded us”, he added.
