The Kabiasi of Erin-Ile in the Kwara State of Nigeria, His Royal Majesty, Oba Alidubaniyu Ajibola Olusrokun II on Friday paid a visit to his alma mater, Philip Quaquoe Boys School at Cape Coast describing the visit as a very important event in his life.
Accompanied by his wife Olori Alhajia Balilat Ibrahim and a high powered government delegation and other important dignitaries, the Kabiasi who is in the country to receive an international award in Accra on Saturday, said, “the visit is more than enough”.
In a brief address, Oba Olusrokun II thanked God for giving him the opportunity to live to see his lama mater which he left some 53 years ago and prayed for divine wisdom for the pupils and advised that they should study hard for them to become prominent personalities and useful adults in future.
“If you don't have education, forget it”, the Kabiasi declared, adding that the current era required excellent education and that they should aspire to get quality education and desist from watching unprofitable programmes on television.
He told the pupils that they are better of compared to their days when it was very difficult to access education saying they had to walk long distances to school among other difficulties.
He also recalled the olden days when children were very respectful and disciplined and expressed concern that, there was so much indiscipline among the younger generation and attributed this to lack of parental care and control and noted that, if parents should play their roles well “we would not have such problems”.
The headmaster of Philip Quaquoe Boys School, Mr Richard Mensah Attah thanked the Kabiasi for the visit as well as the computers presented to the school and pledged that they would be put to good use.
He gave a brief history of the school which, he said was known as the Government High School in the then Gold Coast,
