So, we are always inclined to feeling that public universities are better because they have the capacity, both human and physical resources, and a good number of them are doing very well.
“But then, they are also public universities that are setup like social infrastructure facilities for rural dwellers. Those kind of universities, unless they upgrade, they remain social amenities for rural dwellers and so they are not global.
“However, there are also excellent private universities. Some are very small, but contributing their best and also big and they are also contributing their best.
“Though in Nigeria we do know that much of the research-based post graduate research are being done by public universities, so they are still leaders”, he said.
Nyityo also said while public universities are doing their best, their private counterparts are also doing their best, stressing the need for government to put more money in the public universities to enable them discharge their responsibilities to the society.
He said the University of Ibadan, which is the first in the country, will continue to lead the way in terms of innovation and breakthroughs in technological research, and described the Rivers State Branch as the most vibrant in the country.

A youth body “Sor Babbe 2024” under the auspices of Ogoni Sim Vanguard (OSV), in Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State has commended the State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubura, for the appointment of their Chairman, Board Of Trustee (BOT), Ambassador Marvin Yobana as the Caretaker Commitee Chairman of Khana LGA.
The commendation is contained in a statement signed by the Secretary, Comr. Inaabura Terekpa Henry and the group Coordinator, Comrade Nwigbo Emmanuel, who described the Governor as a “God-given Governor” that mean well for the development of Khana LGA and beyond.
The statement also identified Yobana as a bonafide Ken-Khana son who is truthful and represents “a pure definition of putting a round peg in a round hole”.
“Also, we want to cease this opportunity to remind His Excellency, Siminalayi Fubara, of our undeterred support for his leadership due to his developmental stride in Khana and Rivers State at large.
“We are also calling and appealing on behalf of the good and peace loving people of Babbe district, in Khana LGA, for him to look in-ward with regards to the forth-coming Local government election in Khana.
“That no Babbe son or daughter has been given an opportunity to serve the endowed and blessed people of Khana in the capacity of a democratically elected Chairman since the commencement of the present day dispensation of democracy from 1999 till date.
”What is good for the goose is also good for the gander. Babbe is a child gifted, enormously talented and prodigiously endowed with grassroot servant-hood leaders and support-based galvanisers that can contribute immensely to the growth and development of Khana and Rivers State at large in all ramification, if given the opportunity.
“As a group, we want to reiterate again that we remain resolute, focused and undeterred on the Babbe mandate, as this will serve as a justifiable unifier and thus strengthen the existence of PDP in Babbe and the local government as a whole.
“We also congratulate our BOT Chairman on his appointment as CTC Chairman, Khana LGA”, the statement stated.
