American University of Nigeria is one of the best when we talk about tertiary institutions. Many people know about the school, but only a few have the right information about the school especially the school fees.
Education, they say, is the best legacy. As a parent or guardian, the best you can give a child after home training is quality education. In Nigeria, the education system is retarding due to poor management, fund siphoning, and other factors which is more familiar with government-owned schools.
However, the private sector is trying to revive it by establishing private schools. Presently, private schools compete favorably with public schools at the elementary and secondary stage and even at the tertiary level.
Before now, private universities are seen as option B for students who are unable to seek admission into public universities, but that notion is now out of it with the number of standard private universities we have in Nigeria today.
We have the likes of American University of Nigeria, Covenant University, Babcock University, Fountain University among others. Although these private universities are well known, most people perceive them as being too expensive due to their little knowledge about their fees.
