Purpose of and need for forming the Association.
The common bond of solidarity, comradeship and brotherhood formation in Ombaci College;
Desire of the OBs to rekindle the fire among all stakeholders [students, academic staff, OBs, Parents, Board of Governors, partners and government to restore the glory, pride and premier status of Ombaci as “ First among equals” or “Primus Inter pares”.
