he said here Sunday that once again, the University of Ghana has been ranked ahead of other universities in Ghana and West Africa.

"The UG was ranked in the fifth decile of this year's ranking; and our strongest pillar this year was research. This is definitely a great achievement, given that we were ranked in the fourth decile in 2015, with our strongest pillar that year being international outlook," Prof Oduro Owusu stated at the November Congregation of the University.
