Oxbridge Marks Nigerian Independence Day

Though Nigeria marked its 52nd Independence Day on the 1st October 2012, the college had its own celebration on the 5th of October. The day was colourful and full of many exciting programmes. Students had a free day to come in white and green attire or native attire. They didn’t disappoint. At mid day we were served a sumptuous meal. A guest speaker also gave a moving talk on the imperativeness of Patriotism.

Coincidentally the 5th of October was also the day when students with ambitions for positions on the prestigious college SRC (Students Representative Council) presented their manifestos before the college community. It was all cheer and excitement as inspiring speeches were read to canvas for votes. Students later went to their respective classes to cast their votes for their candidates. We'll soon be announcing the new SRC members so stay tuned ;-)
