The Founder of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos, Dr. Olumide Phillips, has stepped down from office.
In a statement on the school’s Instagram page titled ‘Dowen College Shares Plans Going Forward: A New Chapter’’, Phillips, who served as board chairman of the institution, also announced their (board) retirement.
Part of the statement read, “The founding members of the Board of Governors including the founder and Chairman of the Board, Dr. O. Olumide Phillips, have decided to retire and pass the baton of change to a new generation of seasoned professionals who will run with the vision, leadership passion, commitment and values they have worked rigorously to establish.
“This will also enhance communication and effectiveness with the Parents Teachers Forum.”
The school added that it is working with the Lagos State Ministry of Education and has taken on board their guidance and suggestions concerning various areas of improvement.
The management again commiserated with the family of late Sylvester Oromoni, praying that the school never experience such an unfortunate incident again.
