During these period different types and methods of secretary services (Not modem) existed. In Egypt instance, where civitization started, there were local drums to convey messages in the community and in Akan kindom of Ghana, messages were represented by carving woods (Hassan, 1998). More over, most of the records of events in West Africa before the coming of the missionaries were oral. The coming of the missionaries to Nigeria in 1842 changed the course of events in this direction. The whife man’s first coming in Badagry in 1942 with the establishment of schools, churchs, and small scale business oriented enterprises led to the successful accomplishment of this mission and through administration the modern seccetary existed.
