As most of us already know, most private schools in Nigeria have very strict rules and regulations which they expect students to live by during their stay in the school and life in Igbinedion University is not so different from this. Igbinedion University, Okada is one of those schools with very strict rules and regulations which you must obey.
Private Universities in Nigeria are often regarded as Secondary Schools because there is usually no difference from the life you live in a boarding school and the life you live in a private university.
On a scale of 1 – 10, I will rate them as 7 in terms of strictness. I will rate other schools like Covenant university at 9.
