The first primary school in Nigeria is located in the town of Badagry, Lagos Nigeria. Badagry used to be a major commerce and slave hub in the 19th century. majority of the slaves in west Africa went through ''Badagry Point of No return''.
The introduction of Christianity in Nigeria during the colonial rule, led to the building of the first storey building in Nigeria where the yoruba bible was translated. Before then, the Colonial government had difficulties communicating with the locals and this led to the building of the first primary school in Nigeria which was done through the Christian Missionary Society (CMS) 1843 and it's still standing till date.
