Private Universities In Nigeria & Locations

It is no longer easy to come up with the list of Private Universities In Nigeria as it used to be in the early 2000s. This is because we now have many of them – over 60 private Universities. This number is more than the number of state Universities we have in Nigeria.

The first Private University in Nigeria is Igbinedion University Okada. It was established in 1999 and located at Okada Wonderland in Okada, a town beside Benin City, Edo state. I have seen articles that claim that Madonna University is the first private University to be established in Nigeria. I don’t know where that came from but this is contrary to what many Nigerians know. Maybe because they were both established in the same year 1999.

In the list below, you are going to be having the names of all accredited private Universities in Nigeria and their locations.
