From Olly Owen: Attached is a picture of the first primary school in Northern Nigeria, founded in 1865 under Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther, and thus representing the beginnings of boko learning and english literacy north of the Niger.
It stands in the grounds of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Lokoja, Kogi State, and is still a working primary school, under the control of government.
Here for more pix.
As a historic monument and a working school, I hope you'll agree that this building is in need of both sympathetic material restoration, and support as a working institution.
If you have any ideas or suggestions as to how this issue could be highlighted or furthered, there are people on ground in Lokoja who are interested, and I can help to link up. firstname.lastname@example.org
