Each day of my life, I continue to live with the pleasant memories of having the very best of education at UMass and being a part of the CIE family.


On my return to Nigeria, I served in the state schools system of Imo State in the South Eastern part of Nigeria, as a high school principal. In 1998, I went private and set up a Secondary School – City High School, Owerri - in Imo State as an institution where youth, apart from attaining academic and moral excellence, can appreciate and uphold democratic values. The school is already making an impact among the rural population around and has graduated students who have ventured into different meaningful areas of human endeavor including teaching, social sciences and health. We have now expanded to accommodate Nursery and Primary sections which are equally doing very well.
It is a joy to put into practice, the skills that I acquired in Educational Management at UMass. I will be turning 79 on June 22, 2013 and am still very active working on my school project and always feeling fulfilled and proud to have passed through CIE/UMass. Like any school in its teething period, there are obvious problems, including need for library books, science equipment, computers and other teaching aids.
