This is a major throw back. The period when church was really missionary, not only bringing people to God, but also helping in educating its host community. How many free schools do you see churches building now? All interested in making money, collecting from the poor gullible members and enriching themselves, fake pastors everywhere with fake miracle. The end is near indeed undecided

If northerners started learning boko in this school wherr did they start learning haram? Atleast now we can see where part of the problem started.

This is good history. I hope this is not the present look of the school.
Because the fact of the matter is, if you want an experienced private IELTS tutor in Lagos, with a comparatively guaranteed one-time success at the exam, send a mail to editus dot ng at gmail dot com, and let's talk.

Blessed is he that brought this school to existence. Just to liberate black man from ignorance and fetishism to engender development /advancement of humanity.

Meanwhile, on the Sakwato Zaria axis at the same period in history, another young Devil called Othman Danfodio and his gang were busy murdering people and raping women upandan in the name of Jihad to steal people ancestral lands for the establishment of Islam.
Same time same human beings but different mission.

What?

What is nice about this, unless you want to modify later?


They should build a better structure for the school and partially maintain this(keeping the original look) for history sake

The OP got the headline wrong. The Primary school is the first in Northern Nigeria not in Nigeria in general. You are right the first Primary school is in Bdagry,Lagos.

I did my pre nursery in this School. They called it class toro toro grin There were few of such structures some of them got demolished in early 2000 and replaced with a new structure that couldn't even last up-to 10 years.
lokoja now looks like an ancient naija villa were ppl are happy to die due to lack of money and frustration.

..this is never the first primary school, that a building is very old or dilapidated doesn't make it the first.

First primary school is in Badagry, St Thomas primary school in Mobil in year 1842

It should not be functional classrooms rather the structure should be restored and serve as a tourist attraction.

I thought they said the first primary school was established in 1842 in Badagry or the OP meant first primary school in Northern part of Nigeria? 1842 & 1865 thats like 23 years difference yo!!
And how can learning take place in that building?
They should build a wall around it and turn it to museum
