You will agree with me that there are private universities and there are public universities. Among my top best list, there is a mix.

Web-o-metrics   which is a portal that ranks universities worldwide using special ranking system has ranked Covenant University and OAU as the first and second ranked respectively. Although I believe that this ranking is meant to change as several factors come into play.
