Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe; Prof Eyo Ita (elected leader of then Eastern Nigeria Government in 1951); Dr Akanu Ibiam (Governor of Eastern Nigeria 1960-1966); Dennis Osadebey (pioneer Premier of the Mid Western Region); Vice Admiral Edet Akinwale Wey (former Chief of Naval Staff and Chief of Staff Supreme Headquarters); Prof Eni Njoku (pioneer vice chancellor of the University of Lagos); Adeniran Ogunsanya (former commissioner for education and later secretary to Lagos State government) and Nzo Ekangaki, a Cameroonian and former secretary general of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU).

    It was the PCN that owned the first printing press in Nigeria; introduced the game of football through Hope Waddell Training Institution and stopped the killing of twins through on of its pioneer missionaries, Mary Slessor.
