Covenant emerged no 1 in Nigeria and joint no 4th in Africa.

Unilag broke into the ranking for the first time, surpassing UNN in 3rd place in Nigeria and 18th in Africa.

UNN sits at fourth place in Nigeria with 26th in Africa.

Covenant, now solidly sitting as Africa's best private university, after American University Of Cairo slipped 200 places down the ranking into 800 - 1000 barcket would now go on to challenge the South Africa Trio - University Of Capetown, Witwatersrand University and Stellenbosch University

It is important to note that since University rankings began about 20 years ago, UCT, Wits and Stellenbosch have always remained the top 3. They have never been out ranked before and no Nation except South Africa has ever been top 3.

But by Virtue of Covenant University vision to be one of the top 10 varsities in the world it must attempt to displace the three south African Varsities.

While UI looks to rank among the top 200 universities in the world.

So funny how we masturbate about these rankings. Universities (esp American Unis) are ranked based on based on so many things (like the ones you wrote up there) including achievements. Things like Nobel prize and faculty breakthroughs. Nigerian Unis are nothing to write home about. Even covenant, how has all those their research papers benefited Nigeria. Let's not even talk the world. They are mostly abstract for the sciences or the humanities. To develop a nation, you need to up your game in science and technology which Nigeria (covenant inclusive) is not ready for. Imagine Nigeria is faced with insurgency since 2009 no school has been able to produce a metal, as in metal detecting device (correct me if I am wrong). Look at our highways? What happened to highway engineering?

So funny
When you spend your life watching BBN and all, you won't know what happens even under your nose. It further amuses me when some of you delve into matters you know little of.

The purpose of University rankings is NEVER to measure research breakthrough. Instead rankings measure contributions to Knowledge. University of California Berkeley has the highest numbers of Patent as at last year, yet it was never ranked within the top 5 universities in the world. Why?

The Wright brothers pioneered Air flight but the foundation in aerodynamics research was laid by Dr. Langley Samuel. The purpose of university assessment is to see the Universities contributing to Knowledge and how that knowledge is used globally, by who and for what reason.

Today, one of Apple's secret research center lays in ETH Zurich, the University can't even disclose the existence of the facility talk more of taking credit for the products that are formulated. Same with Georgia Institute Of Technology which houses much of US defense research.

Industries continue to adopt universities based on the core data that is supplied by Organizations like Times Higher Education. In the case of ETH Zurich, Apple saw indexed research work which shows ETH had huge potential for I think display imaging. Apple then established a facility...


Huawei Telecoms Academy is being considered for Covenant university simply because of the THE data that shows Covenant had a strong showing in Engineering and ICT.

It's just a matter of time

We have all it takes to be one of the strongest nation in the world but tribalism and religion intolerance is the biggest hindrance to it

The day Nigerians stop calling themselves by their tribal affiliation or religion we would move forward ..

Politicians are using this to divide us whenever something doesn't go their way and make it feel one tribe hates another tribe

Everything that's happening is politics been played wrongly , for example sowore wants to lead a revolution but northern politicians have interpreted it as a coup against the north just to make the south look bad and hold on to power whereas we know it's not true


I discovered that every Nigerian tribe have it's own strength and weakness but we exploit each other weakness, so has to prove we are stronger than each other whereas it's not suppose to be so

When we succeed as a tribe we celebrate it so as to belittle the other tribe so has to show our tribe is better than the other tribe causing problem for the whole country

What all this breed is bitterness and jealousy ,we don't need all this at all

I can't bliv Nigerians would be happy when one tribe something I'll happens to them ,I can't bliv we are happy and call ourselves name when someone is caught for drugs abroad or when one of us is used for rituals

I can't bliv Nigerians youths would be going to internet to search for news so has to belittle each other tribes so has to prove who commits crimes the most

The whole world doesn't know igbo Yoruba or Hausa all they know is Nigeria

Until this brings any fruit, it's just like any other in Nigerian universities.

We are already one of the strongest nations in the world (that's if you are talking about the strongest 150 Nations in the world.
One thing we fail to realize is that Nigeria was not formed to prosper. Rather, she was formed to make some certain countries prosper. Right from pre independent era, Nigeria has always been a fraud. It is not the fault of the politicians(minor) but that of the people(major). Remember the people go on to become politicians. Remember Arab spring? It was started by the people. Look at sowore, some peeps from the Eastern part think he is fighting his on course. And the list goes on...

That's where the problem lies, you can't get the Fruit(product) without the process.
THE conclusions are amongst many things informed by more than 21,000 leading researchers and lecturers who mostly have never visited Africa before. If they place CU top 500 out of 29,000 universities in the World. I'm sure they know what they are seeing something you can't see.
