Lagos- Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) has emerged as the best
Polytechnic in Nigeria.
Joe Ejiofor, Head, Public Relations, stated this in a statement made available to journalists in Lagos.
At the last count, Nigeria has 31 federal, 48 states and 61 private polytechnics spread across the six geopolitical zones.
The College Webometrics ranking had been in the upward
