The Chairman of the Nigerian Universities Ranking Advisory Committee (NURAC), Professor Emeritus Peter Okebukola, in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja, made known the good news of the superlative performance of Nigerian Universities with emphasis on Covenant University’s leading position in five major Subjects.     

Coming on the heels of the impressive ranking of 12 Nigerian Universities in the World Universities Rankings published on October 12, 2022; where Covenant University was ranked among the top three (3), by Times Higher Education (THE), this is very cheering news for the Nigerian University system.

 Speaking on the rankings, the Vice Chancellor, Covenant University, Professor Abiodun Adebayo, gave all glory to God, stating that the accomplishments the University has recorded in the past years, has not been by power or might, but by the validity of God’s Covenant word over the University.

He reiterated the fact that Covenant is God’s own University, which has been given a unique mandate to raise a new generation of leaders in all spheres of human endeavour; and this accounts for the outstanding feats recorded in the institution over such a short period of time.
