About Us

Unity schools are a great tool for Nations building. This fact should be obvious because the key objective for setting up the Unity Schools by the Gowon administration was to ensure national integration of the post war generation of Nigerians. Every Unity School was well funded, equipped and had students from all parts of the country. In addition, there were no tuition fees and travel to & fro school was paid for by the Federal Government. From sixties to seventies session, classes were held in temporary classroom blocks built on the college sites. 
Federal Government College is a co-educational day and boarding, basic and post basic institution owned by the Federal Ministry of Education. The College over the years has been in the forefront of academic excellence within the geographical region and across Nigeria as a whole. An outstanding performance in various Educational, Social and Sporting activities cannot be farfetched. This is as a result of an enabling learning and sporting environment existing in the school, with the existence of modern features such as; a Standard library, School media/ICT laboratory, Multipurpose hall, Tuck shops, Standard Football pitch, Badminton, Volley ball court, and Lawn tennis facility. A good and secured housing plan in form of dormitories/hostels is in place to accommodate the boarding students, under the supervision of caring and experienced house masters and mistresses. 
Our History is therefore incomplete without our past Principals and vice principals of the school up to date. Making our graduates continually being distinguished through the benchmark they make in different sectors and strata of the economy within and outside the country; including careers in business, engineering, law, medicine, arts, and the media.
