It goes without saying that University of Ibadan is the best university in Nigeria. For me, that is the only university you can trust today to produce thorough-bred intellectuals and professionals. Young or old, they are the most purpose-driven and disciplined set of young people I have met. I'm proud of my Akoka but UI has a rich tradition I admire so much. UI's best is yet to come on the African ranking though.

Anonymous said...

What is the source of this publication. There are so many bodies doing ranking out there, and the rankings say different things. I think citing the source will help a lot.

Michael Jobi said...

Where is University of Benin in that list?

dats very good,but like my lecturers will say"der ar only 2 Universities in Nigeria,University of Lagos(university of 1st choice)& others"

SIMPLYCOCK said...

Utter rubbish!!!!
Linda, I am totally disappointed in you, OR YOU JUST WANT TO STIR CONTROVERSY...
You failed to let us in on WHO THE RANKING BODY IS, and what scientific and verifiable yardstick or parameters used for the so-called ranking...
There are quite a number of bodies that rank educational institutions in Africa, but the best known and authoritative are 4ICU and Webometric...
Each one does its own ranking based on its unique parameters...
Not a few of them, even currently, rank the University of Lagos as the number one in Nigeria...
But you failed to report it...
Now a pretender of a ranking body has come with its own so-called ranking and you are quick to parrot it on LIB....
You fall my hand big time, my dear Linda...
UNIBADAN may chronologically speaking, be the first, but it is by no means the best university in Nigeria (let alone UNN or ABU)!!
To know the best, first identify the various ranking bodies...
They are quite a number...
Then identify the leading Nigerian universities listed thereon and then proceed to highlight their rankings on those platforms...
Then take their averages...
Not that you select one unknown quantity of a "ranker", and go to town with, 'UNIBADAN emerges best in Nigeria...'
Don't be an agent of half-truth or sheer fabrication or baloney...
It is likely that the writer of the index Thisday report is either a UNIBADAN or UNN apologist, since the silly ranking got him/her thoroughly gratified...
I refer you to the websites of the most authoritative ranking bodies..
1. http://www.4icu.org/topAfrica/
2. http://www.webometrics.info/en/Ranking_africa...
Note that neither UNIBADAN or UNN, let alone ABU feature as the first two or three in Nigeria....
An utterly nonsensical ranking!!!!!!
Linda, #DELETE!!!!

I am so disappointed with so called researchers that come up with clueless rankings. My question is who did the rankings? It is abnormal to say rankings are derived from publications and citations between 2010-2014. Even the most recognised global university rankings tagged QS World University Rankings which is compiled by www.topuniversities.com conducts its global university rankings annually. The so called researchers of this rankings here on this blog are even scared to publish their names because the rankings are rubbish and fictitious.

And mind you, U.I is a Federal institution, with no quota system. That means its not an ''Ibadan'' thing. The lecturers and students comprise individuals from across the nation, based on merit. "So, Ibadan people, una well done O. I am proud of you", doesn't make sense.
