Weppa Wanno Pyramid Club of Nigeria, more popularly known as Pyramid Club formally came into existence on December 25, 1987 at the Ogbake Primary School ground, Agenebode. However, the Club has a chequered history behind it. What is today a formal body was first, a gathering of young friends with one goal, to encourage one another and make academic progress in life. The residence of pa Johnson Ayemoba, the father of Charles Ayemoba was the rendezvous. This place was christened “House of Assembly”. The activities at this venue rotated around academic discussions on how to acquire high education as most of the group had just finished the School Certificate or were studying for the Advanced Level General Certificate of Education (G.C.E. A/L).
By the turn of the decade, many of these young men had not only finished post- secondary education, but had also started to settle into various careers. With this development, it had become almost impossible to have another venue where the group could congregate at the same time. The “House of Assembly” was disbanded unofficially by the fact that the members were in schools scattered all over Nigeria, while others were engaged in various vocations across the nation. Therefore, the idea of a common meeting place went into limbo. However, the immediate precursor to what is today known as Pyramid Club, was the meeting held at No. 10, Muyibi Street, Wilmer, Olodi-Apapa, Lagos at the residence of Bernard Adomokha in March 1986. The meeting was convened by Bernard Adomokha. Present at that meeting were Marcel Okhakhu and Kadiri Okoro. As would be expected, not much was achieved at this meeting as many of those invited did not attend. In spite of this, the trio present laid the ground work for subsequent meetings of the club. Marcel Okhakhu who was then at Ibadan was mandated to be the Secretary and to call subsequent meetings.
