    i think it is arranged by the facilities and standards of these universities cuz there is nothing else apart from these two things.

    I think the order shld be ;
    1 OAU
    2 UI
    3 UNILAG
    5 UNIBEN
    …then other follows. And to the guys comparing EKSU and FUOYE,I strongly believe the later is by far better than the former…forget date of establishment. To me,EKSU is just a Glorified secondary school.FINAL… Take it or you leave it…I REP OAU
