Here is a Brief History of Holy Family College, Oku Abak
The non-inclusion of Catholic faithful among the beneficiaries of the
Ibibio State Union Scholarships, coupled with the discriminatory
admissions policies of schools on the mainland owned by different
protestant Churches, gave birth to Holy Family College in 1942.
Under the mentorship of bishp James Moynagh, hofaco was created.
The College celebrated her silver jubilee in 1967. To mark the celebration, a special edition of the college magazine, “The Link” was published.
After the Nigerian civil war in 1970, the Nigerian government enacted a policy which empowered it to take over all schools established and run by various religious bodies. This period saw a serious deterioration in the physical development and moral standards in the college
Our golden jubilee celebration happened this year. Even though government was still in charge of the management of the school, the church and Old Boys gathered to celebrate the event. The Lagos branch of the Old Boys association led by Mr. Moses Ekpo and Chief Don Etiebet provided major funding for the celebration.
Holy family college was eventually handed back to the Catholic mission in 2006. This takeover saw to a massive infrastructural renaissance. Presently, HOFACO is fully owned, managed and administered by the Catholic Diocese of Ikot Ekpene, with Most Rev. Bishop Camillus R. Umoh as Proprietor.
With the return of the college to the Catholic Diocese of Ikot Ekpene, The school management, Old students and other stakeholders gathered to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of HOFACO. The event which was celebrated between 12th to 13th December 2018, was celebrated with Pomp and pageantry.
The school currenlty headed by the principar, Rev. Fr. Dr. Columbus Archibong, and his amiable team who have restored the glory of the school to fullest height and made holy family not just a school, but a family worth sending your wards to.
