The Delta State University, Abraka, has risen to 38th in the latest Webometric ranking of Nigerian universities.
This was disclosed in a statement signed on Monday June 8, 2020, by the acting Director, Ceremonials, Information and Public Relations of the university, Dr Ben Nwanne.
The institution moved 40 places up from its former 78th position. It was also ranked the seventh best state university, moving up from its former 19th position.
“According to the rankings, DELSU made great gains, jumping from its 78th position among Nigerian Universities to 38th position. And from previous 19th position to 7th among state universities,” Nwanne said.

“Egwunyenga gave notice of his expected high-quality performance in the first few days of his administration. At his first Senate meeting on December 11, 2019, he assured his colleagues that he would work with them towards making DELSU the best state university in practically all aspects, including aesthetics and environmental uplift,” he concluded.
