  1. please must be through online registration to register for any of the school?..what if there’s anything like scam in it?..

    and how do we know the registration is reliable.

    Reply
    • Hello Chiamaka,

      For some schools, it is online and you’ll know if it’s legit if you see it on the school website (I.e if the school has one)

      If not, there’s supposed to be a publication with the school’s letterhead, signed by the VC or registrar of the school to authenticate the publication.

      It will also be great if you know people that attend the school so you can contact them to clarify your doubts.
