State House of Assembly

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.
