Due to ASUU strikes and unneeded breaks in the academic calendar, private universities are the top choice nowadays because they need to adhere to the Nigerian academic calendar.

In Nigeria, tuition at private institutions is ten times more expensive than at federal universities. Private institutions are more expensive, but they provide a high-quality education, and their graduates have a better chance of finding employment right away than those from most public universities.

Private institutions are more concerned with a student’s ability to pay the high tuition fee than with the quality of education they deliver.

This indicates that there are many private institutions where prospective students can enroll in the program of their choice. As was already established, private institutions maintain regular academic schedules and abstain from joining the ASUU strike or any other strike that affects public universities.

Standard learning rooms and facilities are well-equipped in private universities, enabling students to complete assignments, practicals, and experiments without difficulty. The accessibility of these resources improves academic performance and helps pupils learn.
