The History

The war ended in January, 1970 and in September, 1973, the state government compulsorily took over the management of all educational Institutions and directed the remaining of schools to give them a new identity. St Patrick College Asaba was renamed Nnebisi College. For the first time, a man not ordained a priest in the person of Late Mr. E. N. C. Okoh was appointed to take over the enviable office of principal in 1969. He stayed in this office until 1970. The succession of principals in the following years is as follows: Mr. P. O. Agokei (1970 – 1973), Dr. G. U. Onukaogwu (1973 – 1975), Mr. R. O. Asonime (1975 – 1983), Mr. B. U. Okonji (1983 – 1992), Mr. G. N. Mobuogwu (1993), Dr. G. C. Ikenwe (1994), Mr. P. G. N. Okolie (1995 – 1999). From the year 2000, St. Patrick College was divided into school I and School II. Consequency, they were two principals running concurrently. As such, we have Mr. P. C. Okiwelu (Jan. 2000 – 2007), Sir E. A. Nwanze (Dec. 2000 – 2007), Den. C. C. Ngemegwai (Aug. 2007 – 2010), Mr. J. C. Isitua (Aug. 2007 – 2011), Sir E. I.
