    ” The federal universities with impressive rankings are the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, University of Ibadan, University of Lagos, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, University of Ilorin, Obafemi Awolowo University, Federal University of Technology, Akure, Bayero University, Kano, and the University of Benin,” he stated.
