Addressing the media, the President said the gesture forms part of the objectives that triggered the formation of the group.
After a careful reflection on the academic gains received when they were students of Osei Kyeretwie Senior High School (OKESS) which is the reason for who they are now, he said it was therefore needful for them to give back to their alma mater.
“We are determined to do more for our almamata”, he indicated.
General Secretary for the group Madam Isabella Adusei also briefed that the group has a membership of 86 including those in the diaspora.
She said the group was formed to help members and the school.
She mentioned that funds for the refurbishment was realized from the financial contributions from members.
The group also used the occasion to engage the students. Dr. Kwabena Boakye in his address empowered them to take their academics serious so as to earn a good place in life after school.
Headmaster Mr. Michael Mensah thanked the alumini for the support.
“I am happy to have this library fixed and refurbished”, he remarked.
He promised to ensure that the facility is put into good use and well maintained.
