Federal University Gashua: Other Things You Should Know About the University

Education in the Northern part of Nigeria has taken positive steps in recent times. Although they are still not where the world expects them to be and some way off the standard of education in other parts of Nigeria, the government has pulled several strings in recent years to encourage education in the region.

While some few government-owned universities in the north make the grade among the very top tertiary institutions in Nigeria, some others have rather maintained an average standard and are not as popular or recognized among the top schools in Nigeria.

The university is located in one of the popular towns in Yobe State.  The motor of the tertiary institution, “Knowledge is Success”, summarized the essence of the university. The motto underlines the importance of education to the modern day world, specially indicating the importance attached to education by the host community as well as the need to be educated. While this motto acknowledges the universal value of education to society at large, it also particularly suggests the part historically played by the university’s host society in the development of Islamic education in Nigeria

Asides from the general civil unrest in the university environs, the school is relatively peaceful, comfortable and, to a large extent, friendly. Like most other federal and state universities, the school is governed by the national university association and is subject to nationwide strike.
