This is a list of Universities in Nigeria -This is a list of universities in Nigeria. Nigeria is organised into 36 states and a federal capital territory (FCT) in Abuja. As a result of the oil boom years of the 1970s, tertiary level of education was expanded to reach every sub-region of Nigeria. The federal government and the state governments were previously the only bodies licensed to operate ScholarsJoint universities. Recently, licenses have been granted to individuals, corporate bodies and religious bodies to establish private universities in the country.
