Various reports presented at the Conference included that from the MOBA National Executive Committee, MOBA USA, MOBA Central Region, the School and the 2017 SYGs Speech Day Planning Committee. In his address, Ebusuapanyin Capt. Paul Forjoe (’73) urged Year Groups to meet their financial obligations towards MOBA. The Guest of Honour Dr. Arkutu spoke on the topic “My days at Mfantsipim, and what Mfantsipim means to me!”
Fraternity messages were received from the Methodist Church Ghana, Wesley Girls High School Old Girls Association, Presbyterian Boys Secondary Old Students Association (Odadee), St. Augustine’s Past Students Association (APSU) and the Accra Academy Old Students Association (Bleoo).
