Princi! You were as firm and strict as you were compassionate. I am grateful for the opportunity to have had you as my principal during my time at FGGC Bakori and for everything I learned that helped shape me and prepare me for life.
You faced many challenges running the school, but you always communicated with and even engaged us in finding and implementing unique and innovative solutions. Your strategies helped make life in Bakori a lot more bearable than it could have been. I have since learned that we fared a lot better than many of our peers because of your passion, commitment, drive, energy and concern for us all.
I thank God for the vision he placed on your heart; I thank God that you were faithful to the vision; I thank God for your family who supported you and shared you with us throughout your years of service; I thank God for all of us who are beneficiaries of His blessings through you and I pray that we continue to be faithful servants of God's love and compassion that knows no bounds of race/ wealth / social / professional /political /religious (etc.) status and/or affiliation.
May God comfort your family and all who mourn your departure.

My PRINCI, my mentor, my heroine, my second Mum, I received the news of your demise with regret and sadness. As I reminisce on life with you in those days in BAKORI, I note with melancholic nostalgia, how you led us, those little girls then, through thick and thin, in abundance and in scarcity, intellectually, academically, spiritually and in all ramifications. Mum, dearest Mrs. Robinson, there you go, a great leader! I say fare thee well Mum. Rest eternally with God, your maker. If ever I were to be a Principal, I pray to be like you. I loved you, we loved you; but God loves you best. Adieu Sweet Mother. Adieu my Principal; PRINCI! Adieu my Heroine. Adieu dear Mother.

So sorry about the passing of Mama F.S. Robinson.
Princy as she was popularly called was our Darling, Caring, Beautiful and Intelligent Amazon.
I won't forget her innovative approach at F.G.G.C Zaria in curbing bullying and fagging which was a major issue facing unity schools at that time. I'm happy to have passed through her.
She remains a huge inspiration to all of us.
May her beautiful soul rest in peace and may God comfort you and the entire family.

Dear Princy, you truly came, you saw and you sure conquered! You lived life to the fullest, you impacted the lives of hundreds of young girls from every part of Nigeria.

We will hold you dear in our hearts forever. Rest in peace our dear princy! You have earned it.May God console all those you left behind.

We all came from different parts of the country to FGGC Bakori as young and impressionable young girls. You took us all under your wings and mothered us. You instilled great values in us that contributed in molding us into the strong women we are today.

July 1978. I had just completed my primary education and was on holiday. The previous December had seen me write the national common entrance. Bakori was not one of my choices when I had filled the application form. I had never heard of bakori. My eyes were set on Queens College or one of the other federal government colleges in the West. So in July 1978, I was just waiting to see which college was going to accept me when I got this letter from a college in a place I had never heard from. I gave the letter to my father. He too, had never heard of bakori, however he had heard of funtua because one of his aunts once lived in funtua and I think funtua was a well known industrial centre, well known to adults but not to kids like me.
My dad's initial reaction was 'that is too far for you to travel to!' . So it seemed like I would not be travelling to this unknown place that no one had ever heard about.
Later on in the evening when my mum got back from work. I gave the letter to my mum who read the letter to the end and when she saw that the letter was signed by one Mrs f s Robinson, she became excited. It turned out that she and Mrs Robinson had been fellow teachers at holy child college, Lagos around the same time I was born. In fact, it was Mrs Robinson who had driven my mum to the hospital when she went into labour for my birth.
So, it was decided that since this college was headed by someone well known to my mum, then it was safe to let me go to this far away place that no one had ever heard of.
End of September 1978, after driving through lots of bush in the middle of nowhere we finally got to fggc bakori and I got to meet this Mrs f s Robinson who turned out to be one of the most lovable, loving, caring, nurturing, motherly, matronly person I had ever met.
I will end this tribute by saying it was a privilege and blessing to have been a student in bakori. It was also a privilege and blessing to have been under the care and mentorship of Mrs fs Robinson who was also strict and a no-nonsence kind of person.
Continue to rest in peace, ma. You fought the good fight and you have gone to receive your crown.

Princi, As you were fondly called. You gave us hope as young girls to be prim and proper and to work hard because it pays. You always guided us to live like the Queens we are in word and in deed. The hope you gave us in every situation enabled us to have strength for every occasion. Everyone saw the" Bakori" in me and nodded knowing that I could be relied on .

From Doroth Eboh nee Ihejiahi (set of 1980). You were my earliest inspiration and demonstration of the boundless capacity and ability of women. You left us with no illusion that we could be and achieve just about anything that we set out to be and gender was not a barrier. At the time, I personally believed that this was the new normal untill I left Bakori to discover that female gender empowerment and access to rounded education was and is still an issue not only in Nigeria but in parts of the world. Thanks for being one of the champions of capacity development of the girl child. To your credit, Bakorians have continued to excel in their chosen fields. You have left your foot prints in the sands of time. My father, late Igwe Cyprian Ihejiahi who was one of your collaborators in the relentless campaign that all acquire a good efucation would smile in agreement. Rest in peace.

A Principal par excellence has gone.!!!
Any of us who says you did not make an impression in her life certainly has to visit a shrink. Your creating a home away from home must have been the only reason why I didn't change my school to one near Enugu. You were the world's best Principal, touching our lives in all ramifications. A beautiful disciplinarian and a wonderful mother to all of us. Always ensuring the best for us. I can say that 60% of what I am today is because of you.
One of my greatest regrets is not staying back for the dinner to express my appreciation for how you have affected my life and that of most of my "Sisters for life" . Your memories will ever remain indelible in my mind.
Sleep on Princi till we all meet again!!
I will always love you!!!

I recall several years after Bakori how you met my sister Linda and I at Balogun market Lagos and you did not only recognize us but also asked after our parents . You were simply a rare gem and treated us all like your biological Children.
We are consoled with the reality that you have gone to a better place where there is no more pain. Rest on my Principal till we meet to part no more.

A rare gem has gone to sleep. May God bless your soul for the love and discipline instilled into the lives of so many of the young girls destiny made to go through your tutelage. I am yet to out grow the memory of how you threatened the supplier who brought substandard loaves of bread for your 'daughters' breakfast. I knew how much you loved each and everyone of us on that day and so did my respect for you go on the increase.
I have followed in your footstep. Discipline is a keyword in my life, home, place of work and the lives of every young one committed to me. I will forever be grateful to God for giving me a mother in you.

Mama, that was what you were to us all. We came from distance parts of the world, to live in Funtua in Kaduna Nigeria, unaware of what will become of us. But we met you and the empty abode became like a home. Everything I learnt as a teenager came from learning at your feet. Though you are no more , I wil strive to make sure that the legacies you left behind including what I am today, burns on a hill for all to see.
Adios great one. Sabina O

I first heard the word “AUSTERITY” at the assembly and then felt it when our meals changed to Alkama cereal, wheat meal and some leafy soup etc.
Years later when interacting with Bakorians I heard of how you travelled severally on our behalf to the ministry of education and seminars arguing why ‘they’ could do better with funding and all! My respect and appreciation to you leapt many levels!
To a lover of Education and girl child, I say Adieu ma, you’ll always be a part of my memories and a reference subject in my drive for what ONE person can do to cause a change in a seemingly daunting environment.
