The Founder

Prof. Adamu Abubakar
Gwarzo Founder of the Maryam Abacha American University of Nigeria, Kano, Federal Republic of Nigeria.

I wish to announce the establishment of a new Private University in Kano, Nigeria. The University known as Maryam Abacha American University of Nigeria (MAAUN) is established to cater for the needs and aspirations of students in areas of learning, research and development studies. It is the first English University in Niger and founded by my humble self as its President.

The policy thrust of the university is to place emphasis on knowledge since knowledge is life. It also aspires to become one of the world class best in the various courses it seeks to offer for students.

Indeed, the Institution seeks to become a global Centre of learning that extends the boundaries of knowledge and human experience through research, creativity, innovation and the delivery of a professional education in the highest caliber in Africa and the world. The mission and the goal of MAAUN as an educational institution, is the persistent motive to provide a distinguished educational service that conforms to the wishes of the society towards promoting knowledge and discipline.


I wish to inform you that the university has already taken off in its part time courses. Choosing the American standard Academy to continue your studies really reflects your aspirations towards distinction and Academic Excellence.
