State Universities – According to the National Institutions Commission, Nigeria now has fifty-four accredited state universities (NUC). The amount and sorts of courses that these universities can provide are determined by their capacities.
Only four state universities have fewer than twenty recognized programs, according to data acquired from Nigeria Universities Commission (which regulates university programs) and JAMB. Take a look at these ivory towers for a moment.
1. Edo State University, Uzairue
Edo State University, Uzairue is the first of them. This university was founded as Edo University Iyamho under Governor Adams Oshiomhole. The state House of Assembly renamed the organization in 2020, according to a story in Thisday Newspaper. This university currently offers 17 undergraduate programs that are accredited. Civil Engineering is the only one that has interim accreditation, while the other 16 have complete accreditation.
2. Plateau State University (PLASU)
Plateau State University (PLASU) in Bokkos is the second institution in this category. It was established in 2005 under Governor Joshua Dariye’s administration. PLASU’s four faculties provide sixteen approved programs. Interim accreditation is provided to two of them (Geography and Mass Communication).
3. Sule Lamido University (SLU), Kafin
Sule Lamido University (SLU), Kafin Hausa, is an ivory tower with only a few approved programs. The university was approved by the NUC in 2013 as Jigawa State University. The university was founded under the management of Sule Lamido, and the school was renamed after him a year later. SLU now offers 15 full-accreditation academic programs in the faculties of Arts, Education, and Science.
4. Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology
Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (previously Ondo State University of Science and Technology), Okitipupa, is the final university on this list. Under the administration of Governor Olusegun Agagu of blessed memory, this institution was granted regulatory certification in 2008. It was, however, renamed by Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, the state’s current governor. There are nine full-accreditation programs and one interim-accreditation program at this school.
