The sudy of Russian Language in Nigeria dates back to 1960, when the University of Nigeria Nsukka was established and the course introduced, first, as a minor, and later, as afull degree course. Shortly after, it was introduced at the University OIbadan and like at Nsukka, as a susidiary, and later, a degree course. The spread reached the University of Lagos in 1970. Ever since then, many other universities have signified interest in the course among which was the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), which unfortunately could not progress with the course after a short time.
