Titled “Proudly Johnian“, the portraits show the face, the name as the current achievement of the old boys. Campaign manager and publicity secretary Kehinde Bamigbetan said the awareness strategy started like a flicker but has now caught fire. ” The request from members for the “Proudly Johnian” portraits is amazing.
