About Ahmadu Bello University (ABU)
Ahmadu Bello University Zaria is a federal government research university in Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria.
ABU was founded on 4 October 1962, at the University of Northern Nigeria.
The university operates two campuses: Samaru (main) and Kongo in Zaria. There is a pre-degree school in Funtua a few kilometres from the main campus owned by the university.
The Samaru campus houses the administrative offices and the faculties of physical sciences, life sciences, social sciences, arts and languages, education, environmental design, engineering, medical sciences, agricultural sciences and research facilities.
The Kongo campus hosts the faculties of Law and Administration.
The Faculty of Administration consists of Accounting, Business Administration, Local Government and Development Studies and Public Administration Departments. Additionally, the university is responsible for other institutions and programmes at other locations.
It is named after the Sardauna of Sokoto, AlhajWe sir Ahmadu Bello, the first premier of Northern Nigeria.
The university runs a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate programmes (and offers associate degrees and vocational and remedial programmes).
It has a large medical programme with its own ABU Teaching Hospital, one of the largest teaching hospitals in Nigeria and Africa.
As Nigeria approached independence on October 1, 1960, it had only a single university: the University of Ibadan, established in 1948.
The important Ashby Commission report (submitted a month before independence) recommended adding new universities in each of Nigeria’s then-three regions and the capital, Lagos.
Even before the report, however, the regional governments had begun planning universities.
In May 1960, the Northern Region had upgraded the School of Arabic Studies in Kano to become the Ahmadu Bello College for Arabic and Islamic Studies. (The college was named after the region’s dominant political leader, AlhajWe sir Ahmadu Bello.)
In 1966, Dr. Alexander was succeeded as ABU vice chancellor by Dr. Ishaya Shuaibu Audu, a pediatrician and associate professor at the University of Lagos. Audu had been born in Wusasa, near Zaria, in 1928. A native Hausa, he was ABU’s first Nigerian vice chancellor and a northerner. However, his membership in the Hausa Christian community of Wusasa probably had some later impact on his tenure.
ABU was seriously affected by the coups and the anti-Igbo riots of 1966. But, under Dr. Audu’s leadership, ABU was to grow and develop at an even faster pace.
Growth in student enrollments had been held hostage to growth and development of A-level training at the secondary school level.
So beginning in 1968–69 ABU broke free from the British three-year heritage and established the School of Basic Studies to provide advanced secondary pre-degree training on campus.
Students who entered through the School of Basic Studies essentially embarked on a four-year programme toward a bachelor’s degree.
Opposed initially by some, the school proved a great success and enrollments expanded even more rapidly. By its tenth year ABU total enrollments including non- and pre-degree programmes were put at over 7,000 of which more than half were in degree programmes.
In its first ten years, the University of Ibadan produced 615 graduates. At ABU the corresponding figure after 10 years was 2,333 first degrees, along with several advanced degrees.
From the beginning, ABU was remarkable for the breadth of its ambition. In its institutions, but mainly on or close by the main campus by Samaru, ABU was creating a range of programmes that only the very most comprehensive of U.S. state universities could have matched.
Ranging far beyond the standard fields of the arts, languages, social sciences and sciences, it included engineering, medicine (the Zaria hospital was an ABU teaching hospital), pharmacy, architecture, and a wide variety of agricultural departments including veterinary medicine.
What was called the Kongo campus just outside the old city in Zaria taught public administration and carried out a programme of in-service training for local government throughout the north. The Faculty of Law was based at the Kongo campus.
The Faculty of Education taught education courses and managed the Advanced Teacher’s Colleges in the northern states.
At the Kano campus (now called Abdullahi Bayero College) ABU taught courses in Hausa, Arabic and Islamic studies.
The University has thirteen faculties:
- Faculty of Administration
- Faculty of Agriculture
- Faculty of Arts
- Faculty of Education
- Faculty of Engineering
- Faculty of Environmental Design
- Faculty of Law
- Faculty of Life Science
- Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science

The university also has a Division of Agric Colleges (DAC) a research institution established before the university was but later merged with the university. The Faculty of Medicine was upgraded to the College of Medical Sciences in 2024, with five faculties; 
- Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences
- Faculty of Basic Clinical Sciences
- Faculty of Clinical Sciences
- Faculty of Dentistry
- Faculty of Allied Health Sciences.
