University Of Ibadan VC, Olayinka Blasts UNN's Social Media Handler by HigherEd: 12:42pm On Jul 24, 2019
The Handler who claimed UNN was ahead of UI and Covenant university made some typographical errors which the VC corrected.

Apart from that, the entire news was based on "Transparency" indicator of Webometrics which is one out of four component of the webometrics ranking which represents 10% of the total ranking.

Blast indeed! I saw his comment on UNN official facebook page being furious that the report by UNN was wrong which is false. As an academic that he is, the least he should have done was verify the claim of UNN before throwing tantrums like a kid that his meal was denied him.

Trust UNN, he was put and placed on the place that he should be from the replies he got albeit subtly. UNN calmly acknowledged his notice on the typographical errors and equally shared the link to him to verify himself. I even verified it on his behalf and guess what, UNN is right.

Ranked not just above UI but even University of Ghana our neighbors.


I don't know why when UNN makes any breakthrough y'all come for the attack, the criticism and even belittles her efforts. What does it take from you to at least commend them and look inward to know what you ain't doing right to be ranked higher. Even from your post HigherEd, I can infer how you have already rubbished the achievements of UNN just because it's based on citations but that's equally the amount of research output from an institution.

Great Lions and Lionesses!

Well the point is this, if you must celebrate Citations as the basis of the whole ranking then you must give the full picture.

"Total citations" which UNN is parading represents just 10% of the total Webometrics rank.

"Excellence" represents 35% of the entire rank which measures the top citations received from top 10% universities in the world in 24 disciplines. UI usually leads in that area but you never see them parading that.

Webometrics is already very controversial as a whole. Let them wait till tomorrow when the full ranking is released before making any claims.

Just complicating things, you mean webometric itself is confused?


What stops UI from celebrating their 'excellence', if actually they are dominating in that field?

There is an adage in Igbo language that says when a warrior is praised for the one he has done, he would do more.


Allow UNN to bask in this achievement maybe this could spur them to surpass UI in the 'excellence' ranking if they are actually trailing UI there.

UNN is finished
That's what happens when you give wawa people something.

Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Awka that was established just yesterday is progressing exceptionally but those wawa things in Nsukka are pressing UNN down. They are running the school the same way the wawa Governor is running the state.

In a few years, UNN would be competing with IMSU.

Our attitudes as Nigerians will never change. Tribal sentiments are our biggest problems to the extent that we find something to tribalize about in institutions that belong to everybody. What is most important is for the Universities to invest more in research to benefit the country. However, no matter the amount of rankings Nigerian universities received, they will still not be able to come up with good research because the Universities in Nigeria definitely reflect Nigeria's backwardness. You cannot expect a poor country to have world class institutions. It is definitely not going to be possible.
