Top 30 Oldest Secondary Schools in Nigeria

Secondary school life is the most crazy life you can ever enjoy, these moments are forever cherished because you get to meet some friends you might never see for a very long time. I went to a secondary school regarded as the best in the State, Iganmode Grammar School, Ota, established in the 1960 and still is not in the list of the Oldest schools in Nigeria.
I had friends I wished we saw everyday, but it's not possible, some already got married, some out of country and some yet to gain admission, still pushing to study in the Nigerian university. 

Well, if you had your education in any of the underlisted schools below, then I'll regard you as an old school student in the new school era, these schools are the oldest according to the years of existence, they are as old as the existence of Nigeria, the first secondary school in Nigeria is the Baptist Academy Obanikoro, Lagos which was established in 1855 by American Baptist Missionaries,The schools' imposing Chapel dominates the entrance of the school next to the football and sports pitch.

Is your school among the listed school above? If yes, you are an old school student and you were taught in an old school setting, and if No, you need to come get some tutorials from me on how survival was when I was in secondary school, you probably went to some new school with little or no social life. Feel free to drop your comments on the secondary school you attended.
