Nigerian comedian Bovi Ugboma has renovated some of the class and staff rooms of the University Staff School in Benin city.
The commissioning of the newly renovated classroom block and staff rooms took place on Monday, September 12, 2022, at the premises of the school.
The project was commissioned by the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Philip Shaibu.
The deputy governor later took to his Instagram page where he praised the comedian for his laudable effort.
“This morning, I commissioned a 430-capacity 20-classroom and 2 staff rooms project renovated by an Alumnus of the University of Benin Staff Primary School, Bovi Ugboma. The donor is also an international stand-up comedian,” he wrote.
“Despite my tight schedule coupled with the short notice, I made it important to be there to encourage him and other like minds. I laud his courage and the initiative for being responsible to give back to his Alma mater.”
The comedian who is an alumnus of the school visited the school about a year ago.
Bovi’s benevolence to the school includes a 430 capacity, 20 classroom block and two staff rooms.
Other dignitaries who turned up for the event were colleagues and friends of the comedian, I Go Die, I Go Save and a host of others.
He has organized popular stand-up comedy concerts across the globe.
Bovi is married to his wife, Kris Asimonye Ugboma and they have three adorable children.
