The National Universities Commission has ranked the University of Ibadan first in its latest 2021 ranking released Monday. 

The lead presenter, Prof. Peter Okebukola, disclosed this in Abuja at a capacity building workshop on improving the ranking of public universities in Nigeria, organised by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund.

He said the ranking involved 113 universities across the country using 12 indicators. 

He said the institutions were ranked based on total number of full-time students, number of international students, students and staff ratio, efficiency, google scholar index and contribution to knowledge economy. 

Other criteria were percentage of international staff, programmes with full time accreditation, all citation per capital, among others. 

“You cannot get any form of ranking system in the whole wide world that does what Nigeria has done. For this 2021 edition, based on the 12 indicators that we have developed, the University of Ibadan is the first followed by Federal University of Technology Akure,” he said. 

He said some universities did not show up for the ranking, urging them to partake in the next one.

Earlier, Executive Secretary of TETFund, Elias Bogoro, said Nigerian universities were not doing well in global ranking hence the need to reposition and showcase them to the world.
