Unity Schools in Nigeria: The Full List

Unity is an important attribute of any successful nation. This was why the Federal Government of Nigeria established the unity schools as a means of fostering national unity through the interactions of pupils from different parts of the country.

The unity schools are otherwise known as the Federal Government Colleges (FGC).

Admission into unity schools is based on a quota system; 30% of candidates are selected on merit irrespective of their state of origin; another 30% from other states; then 30% from the host state; and the final 10% are admitted based on exigency.

Prior to the Federal Government establishing the unity schools, we had the King’s College and Queen’s College which was established in the colonial era. These schools were located in Lagos and they can be said to be the first set of Unity schools.

After independence, 3 unity schools were established in Warri, Enugu and Sokoto. In 1973, the Federal Government decided to spread this concept to all the states of the Federation.

After the civil war, more unity schools were established to cushion the devastating effects of the war and promote national unity – North, South, East, and west.
