Afe Babalola University Ado Ekiti (ABUAD)

Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD), a Federal Government-licensed, Non-Profit Private University is a model which is unique in many ways.

It is located on 130 hectares of land at an altitude of over 1500 feet above sea level which ipso facto provides a cool and ideal climate of learning and sports activities.

It is the only university in Nigeria, which prior to the issuance of a provisional license by the Federal Government of Nigeria, moved to its permanent site and constructed magnificent College buildings and College Hostels, Staff Quarters and equipped with modern teaching facilities including E-learning platform and electronic boards within eight months.


The vision of the University is to lead education reform in Nigeria by providing a world-class educational center of excellence in academics, character, sports and vocational development.

This vision is guided by the need to produce professionals who are sound and agile. Through its academic and professional programs, graduates of the University will emerge as people with professional skills and become business owners thus assuring each of them a job after graduation.

The Proprietor dreams of leaders and achievers who would be self-reliant, kind and generous, considerate and sportsmanlike. His guiding principle that it pays most who works hardest shall be taught, applied and practiced religiously. Students shall be made to believe in the golden rule that no matter ones background, nothing is impossible; and with hard work, one can make it to the top.

In form and structure, Afe Babalola University is conceived as a citadel for the promotion of an authentic learning environment that puts intellectualism at the center of its tradition. The temperament of universality and excellence shall be imbibed and shall be evident at every level of academic decision-making in all colleges and departments of the University.

This vision is in line with the policy of the Federal government which encourages public-private partnership. The Proprietor has deployed his vast contacts in business and professional circles to muster support for the fulfilment of the vision.


Afe Babalola University is a result-oriented institution for producing highly skilled and socially relevant graduates capable of applying scientific knowledge for the resolution of social and technological problems.
