What You Should Know About Abia State University

This University was established in 1981 and located at Uturu in Abia State, Nigeria (at the rural/suburban area). It is among the public Universities in the country. Also, ABSU is a State owned University (that is, it is owned by Abia State government). Again, ABSU was created (by Sam Mbakwe when he was governor of old Imo State) under the name of Imo State University, Etiti. So, its main campus was located at Etiti, Imo State, while the Department of Law was located at a separate Campus at Aba.

But between 1984 and 1985 (that is, under the military governorship of General Ike Nwachukwu), this University moved to its permanent site at Uturu Okigwe. However, after the creation of Abia State in 1991, the Uturu campus of ABSU was ceded to Abia State. Today, it is known as “Abia State University Uturu, Isuikwuato Local Government Area, Abia State, Nigeria”.

This State University is organized in colleges and schools because it was founded on the same collegiate system with University of Nebraska. However, State Universities were created in different States in Nigeria in order to expand admissions and bring professional skills, facilities of modern research, and expertise close to the city and rural dwellers, and to help talented students to obtain higher education.
