  1. I have always wanted to go to a university that does not just go by the name university, but is also worth my time because I hope to finish not only as a better student but going home with well enough knowledge. for sometime now, the university of Ibadan has been my number one option, but with the interesting details i got from your site, i would need to consider some other universities. plus I also love the setup and structure of your site, you do not see that many sites with your style these days. if you want some interesting details on Aeronautical engineering, then check the best Aeronautical Engineering institutions in Nigeria. you can also check this link for some NECO syllabus if you would be sitting for the exam this year.
