Private universities in Nigeria have shown promising growth and could help retain the thousands of students who have in recent years spent billions of dollars studying abroad. However, to ensure that growth in post-secondary enrolment continues, the increase in the number of private institutions is being matched by increased government investment – part of a broader shift to expand the skilled labour pool and improve employability.
In a bid to improve the quality of Nigeria’s universities and ensure that more secondary school graduates opt to attend local rather than foreign institutions, the government has unveiled plans to increase the number of campuses and improve funding for state education initiatives.
Nigeria’s government is intervening to address understaffing at public universities following concerns over funding levels, while the private sector is also being bolstered to meet the country’s educational needs.
