    If the criteria 4 ranking is on the numbers of graduates produced by the school, hw on earth can institutions like Afe babalola university dat has nt produce a single graduate be rated above institutions like UNAD, AAUA and Other. This Ranking is fallacious and Faulty in all.

  3. Salihu Reply

    This ranking is a trash. It is one of those media sentiments. How can all be universities from the south rated the first five or more. I am a josite, but i disagree with this rating.

  4. Yusuf Reply

    I disagree with d ranking based on aforementioned yardstick, imagine kwara state university that have not produce a graduate is rated above many fed. Varsity. Though am a unilorin graduate,but this is rubbish.

    i donlt think the people doing d ranking have any brain in their skull.nonsense ranking!

    This ranking is baseless & absolutely lacks credibility criteria. The criteria used discredits the entire so-called universites ranking. How would u argue d ranking based on d number of graduates a university produces and still went ahead to list some universities that were only established not more than a year ago on top of those that have been in operation for over 30years and have turned out so many graduates. While on the other hand university like Fed. Uni. Dutse hasn’t produced any graduate yet regardless of its graduates being competitive but ontop of universities known to be better than it. In a nutshell THIS SO-CALLED UNIVERSITIES RANKING IS SCANDALOUS. Pls i urge You to remove this DO NOT MISLEAD ORDINARY PEOLPLE

    How do you ascertain d competitivesness of graduates produced by a UNIVERSITY THAT IS YET TO PRODUCE ANY OF SUCH GRADUATES? Answer please. THIS SOUNDS CONTRADICTORY IN ITSELF

    I believe that Veritas University is the best in Nigeria. The first University to get full accreditation in all programmes at the first NUC visit. The University has all the necessary facilities for learning and administration. The library is connected to world best libraries.

    well for me its simple and I agree with the ranking,,if anyone has fact about which institution should come first or second should come out straight and gainsay the ranking,only with fact and not mere assumption.So lets be thoughtful and appreciating.
    Somebody actually took out his or her time to make this finding.It will be unfair of us to want to rubbish his/her effort.Thanks!

    This ranking has to be re-arranged, and am sure this isn’t based on Numbers of graduate produced. I believe it was jus made 4 fun.

    why is the ranking based only on number of graduates and graduation grades? why not number of diligents and useful products(graduates) of the university?
