The argument of which institution is better between federal and private universities is far from being settled as many students haven’t — and may never — reached any conclusion over which one is better.
We are not here to support or oppose either of the two types of universities, we are only going to let you know that both institutions have their advantages and disadvantages.
As for federal universities, which are owned and managed by the federal government of Nigeria, their tuition fee is relatively cheaper than their counterparts.
Unfortunately, you can’t take away the fact that they are prone to suffer from regular ASUU strike, which will definitely have negative impact on students academic calendars.
Private Universities, at the other hand, are free from unnecessary strikes, they possess quality academic vicinity and up-to-date learning equipments. Unfortunately, they demand high tuition fee from their students.
Nonetheless, it would be unfair to say that all private universities are not affordable. This is because Caleb University, a highly-rated private institution, renders very cheap education services to students.
