Ephraim is now a lawyer, he came into Mt. St. Gabriel’s as a young boy in 1993 and later graduated in 2000.
Just like his father in 1973, he was the headboy of his set.
My first encounter with Father was when I got into MSG. When Fr. Frazer asked me my name, I told him Ephraim Fater Sarwuan and he said,
“Oh Lord, your father Dominic Sarwuan was our headboy in 1973”. Ephraim told ASKiNG RADiO Senior Reporter, KiNG JAMES YiYE .
According to Ephraim, that was how he became close with his father’s teacher.
He recounts moments where Fr. Angus Frazer “would come to class during Preps to supervise us and see if we were reading and once he sights any student who’s father was an oldboy, he will tell us stories about our fathers”.
He says, “the last time we were with him in Garkawa on a visit, he informed us that his superior in the Holy Ghost congregation sent him on an assignment to establish a seminary there where they would train priests for the church in Europe since vocation was dying in Europe”.
Fr. Angus Frazer holds the National Honours of MFR in Nigeria.
