The AD Scientific Index ranking 2024 has ranked the Nile University, Abuja, as the best private university in Northern Nigeria.

According to the ranking published on the website of AD Scientific, titled: ‘Nigeria Private Universities Ranking 2024’, the Maryam Abacha American University (MAAUN) emerged second best private university in the North.

This is as the American University of Nigeria (AUN) was ranked third in the same category.

In the overall ranking, Redeemers University was ranked 1st University in Nigeria, followed by Covenant University Ota and Afe Babalola University, which emerged 2nd and 3rd, respectively.

Nile University, founded in 2009, was ranked 10th, MAAUN, established in 2021 in Kano, was ranked 11th, while AUN got ranked as the 13th university in Nigeria.

Al Qalam University in Katsina was ranked 33rd, Al Hikmah University Ilorin 39th and Skyline University 42nd.

MAAUN was established in 2021 by renowned philanthropist, Professor Adamu Abubakar Gwarzo, who is also the founder of Niger Republic’s best private university, Maryam Abacha American University of Niger.

Reacting to the ranking, Prof. Dr Bikash Sharma, co-founder and president of International Academic and Management Association, described it as a stepping stone for MAAUN.

Sharma said, “It’s high time that we did a complete overhaul of the education system globally, employing the best lecturers, and equipping our universities with the best facilities.

“MAAUN achieving this feat in less than 3 tears is not surprising. The founder has proved his commitment to standard and internationalisation.”

“It is high time that we move from traditional teaching to experiential learning,”

On his part, Isa Gwadabe, an educationist, hailed MAAUN for projecting its image through commitment to academic excellence.

“This is not an achievement to the institution alone but to the entire Kano State and Nigeria in particular. Among all the universities that were given licences together, MAAUN is leading in just less than 3 years,” he added.

LEADERSHIP reports that AD Scientific Index is one of the best rankings for scientists in the world.

“I hope other institutions will emulate MAAUN towards achieving this great feat,” he further stated.

The ‘AD Scientific Index’ on its website said the University Rankings will not only show the areas in which a university is best or focused but also reflect the results of the institutions’ scientific recruitment policies.

This feature reveals the ability of institutions to attract successful scientists and the ability of institutions to promote advances and retain scientists.

‘AD Scientific Index’ is the only university/institution ranking system that analyses the distribution of scientists in an institution according to the top %10, %20, %40, %60, %80 percentiles and total scientists.
