Quality of education is one of the fastest pathways to national development. It was Nelson Mandela that said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” We believe the importance of education to a nation can not be over emphasized. In most parts of the world education is regarded as a fundamental human right as it remains the basic criteria to measure the growth and development of any nation.
Sadly the level, quality and standard of education in Nigeria has witnessed a geometric decline in the past two decades and this unfortunate trend has made Nigeria the leading country of origin of students from Africa migrating to other parts of the world in search of quality education. FreePastQuestions.com was born to solve a part of this problem.
