Checkout the NUC list of top 10 best Universities in Nigeria 2018

It is worth noting that National Universities Commission did not provide updated data for several years. This was officially stated by the Executive Secretary, Prof. Adamu Abubakar Abdulrasheed. But high powered Committee was constituted, and it has to deal with this task in future. It consists of prominent academicians. So the results will be really qualitative. The head of the Committee is the former Executive Secretary, Professor Peter Okebukola. On the Internet, you can find some ratings that repeat the outdated data or put ABU Zaria in the first position.
