What Are State Universities?
State universities are tertiary institutions that are funded and managed by the State Government where the University is located at.
We have three (3) levels of Governments in Nigeria (Federal, State and Local), and this universities fall under the coffers of the State govt, and as such, the Federal govt do not have much influence or say about what may or may not happen in such schools.
So, the appointments of the VC and other internal school affairs is done strictly by the State Government and not Federal.
Each States owns at least one University, as against the forty nine (49) federal Universities we have, there are Fifty Seven (57) Universities in Nigeria that are State Owned and more are been added from time to time.
