This was done to honor her selfless efforts in the area of learning and service to humanity,the CAS also noted that it was necessary that a facility such as the Assembly Hall in an institution of learning and character development should be named after someone who had dedicated her life to educating future leaders.

We remember her for her actions during the Abule-Ado petroleum pipeline explosion which eventually culminated in a fire incident at the Bethlehem Girls’ College.

“Reverend Sister Henrietta made the ultimate sacrifice on March 15, while evacuating her students from the fire caused by the explosion at the school.Her bravery on that day paid off as no student of the College was lost to the deadly incident,” he said.

The Chief of the Air Staff while unveiling the new hall also said he hopes that naming the Assembly Hall after her would not only be symbolic but would also continually keep her memory fresh in the hearts of people.

“I am convinced that the story of her heroic act on that fateful day will continue to light a path for younger generations and the ones yet to come on the value of selfless service to humanity. In addition, her sacrifice will also serve as a motivation to officers and airmen/airwomen of the NAF who are presently deployed to various theaters of operation in our country.

“I pray for the repose of the soul of Rev. Sister Henrietta Alokha, Her name deserves a place in the sands of time as she chose to put humanity before self,” he said.
