BENIN CITY- Reconstruction Work at the dilapidated and rain-storm ravaged Anglican Girls Grammar School, (AGGS) in Benin City, has commenced in line with the promise of Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as stakeholders showered praises on the Comrade Governor.
A visit to the school premises by The OBSERVER  team, revealed that reconstruction work had begun with the dismantling of the AGGS Hall, in readiness for the actual renovation which the contractor handling the project said, will be completed in three weeks.
Speaking with The NIGERIAN OBSERVER, the project manager for the renovation of the school hall, Arch. Okorokporo Victor, of West field Global Construction Ltd, remarked that in three weeks time, the project would have been completed according to design and specification.
Meanwhile, it was praises galore for the Comrade Governor, Adams Oshiomhole again, yesterday as the President, Anglican Girls Grammar School (AGGS) Old Girls Association, Clara O.  Uzzi, the two principals of both Junior and Senior Secondary Arms of the school as well as students of the school poured encomiums on the Governor, describing him as a “Consummate, Passionate and action Governor whose educational policy is superb”.
While the AGGS Benin Old Girls Association president, Clara Uzzi, commended Governor Oshiomhole for heeding the call of the students to revamp the comatose situation of the once most vivacious Girls Secondary School in the then Bendel State, she described the Governor’s prompt response to the call of the students as fatherly, compassionate and pragmatic.
Mrs. Uzzi also used the opportunity to highlight some of the problems of the school to include encroachment on the school land through the erection of private buildings, mechanic workshops,  communication masts, commercial boreholes by unauthorised persons and pleaded for the intervention of the Comrade Governor in reclaiming or recovering the school property as he is set for the total rehabilitation of the school.
Principals of both Senior and Junior Secondary arms of the schools, Mrs Felicia Okundia and Mrs. Patience Aibueku, respectively, expressed joy, prayed for God’s continued protection  for the Governor and used the opportunity to convey their heartfelt appreciation to the Governor.
On their part, the students of AGGS trooped out in their numbers to express thanks to the Governor and urged him to incorporate in the total rehabilitation work, fencing of the school  to guarantee their safety in the hands of hoodlums.
It will be recalled  that on February 11, 2015 while inspecting the Adesuwa  Road rehabilitation and reconstruction project, Governor Oshiomhole was “ambushed” and “hijacked” by the AGGS Students led by Miss Aguebor Omosefe Joyce who pleaded with him to extend the “Red Roof Revolution” to their school, which had suffered terribly from decades of neglect by past successive administrations.
