In a massive show of solidarity and support the Executive President of the Sasse Old Boys Association, SOBA UK over the weekend in Chesford Grange Hotel unveiled a one thousand pound (£1,000) donation to the ex-students of Saker Baptist College, ExSSA UK in their latest string of charitable support to alumni associations.
Cameroon Concord News Group understands that the money will help expand and improve ExSSA UK’s activities including their theme to engage and elevate the education of the girl child. In a captivating speech delivered by the much respected SOBA UK President Mr Ayuk Akoh-Arrey, the Sakerettes were reminded of the long standing connection between the students of Joseph’s College, Sasse and Saker Baptist College Limbe. President Akoh-Arrey told the sell-out crowd of over 300 guests that Sasse College and Saker Baptist share a long standing history, and that their cause to support the education of the girl child was a good cause, and he congratulated the National President of ExSSA, Ms Irene Tamajong and her organising committee for putting up a great convention.
The SOBA UK President made public the names of the many SOBANS who attended the event, among them, the former CPDM UK Section Vice President Comrade Alfred Bate Bawak, Chief Bate of MECA Leicester and Hon. Eko Ngwashi, along with members of the SOBA UK Executive team in full attendance.
The President of ExSSA UK, Irene Tamajong assured the guests at the convention that the money will be spent on good causes. Speaking to our UK correspondent immediately after his presentation, President Akoh-Arrey said SOBA UK will continue to make significant donations to support its members and charitable causes. He said the key target for SOBA UK now is to deliver a very successful Convention on 22nd September 2018 at St George’s Park, the Home of England National teams.
