List of All Approved Universities in Nigeria (2022).

If you’ve been waiting to know the list of Universities in Nigeria, this blog post is for you.

Interestingly, the increasing drive by Nigerians to obtain a university degree is also increasing the establishment of more universities.

This, of course, is to meet the demand.

Before now, the state government and federal government in Nigeria were the only bodies licensed to establish and operate scholars joint universities.

However, that has changed now.

Because individuals, corporate organizations, and religious bodies can now be licensed to establish and operate universities.
