Rev. Fr. John Asen
is currently the principal of the school. He succeeded Fr. Fraser and assumed duty on September 12, 2014. Interestingly, however, like Father Stanislaus Roman, Father John Asen also taught and gave chaplaincy services at Mount Saint Michael’s Secondary School, Aliade for nine years before his appointment as Principal of Mount Saint Gabriel’s Secondary School, Makurdi. He was the Vice Rector of St. James’ Junior Seminary, Yandev for five years before his transfer to Mount Saint Michael’s Secondary School, Aliade in 2005. Since he assumed the office of principal of Mount Saint Gabriel’s Secondary School, Makurdi, Father Asen has worked very hard to maintain the standards set by Father Fraser.
Under him, the school has been converted to full boarding, the iconic two-storey building belonging to the school has been renovated, Saint Gonzaga Gonza’s dormitory has been expanded and relocated and Saint Kibuka’s dormitory has been added to the list of dormitories. Also science laboratories have been relocated to more conducive structures and upgraded to conform to modern standards for the benefit of students. Boreholes have been sunk and a water tanker purchased in addition to repairs and steady maintenance of water pipe lines linking to the Benue State Water Works to provide portable water for students.
