Maxwell Konadu named a strong start line-up featuring Mamelodi Sundowns new signing Mumuni Abubakar and Tema Youth's Moses Odjer.
The Black Satellites piled early pressure and duly carved the opening goal in style.
Tema Youth winger Francis Narh caused havoc on the flanks before playing through Nketiah who swept a screaming low drive home.
Striker Jacob Apau wasted a penalty in the 22nd minute to double Ghana's advantage after Narh was heckled inside the box.
Nketiah, Narh and Odjer all wasted glorious scoring opportunities in the dying embers of the first half.
Ebenezer Inkoom got Ghana to a flying start 11 minutes after the interval when he raced to connect home a Narh low cross from the left wing.
The pressure was sustained and Uganda's Hippos had no answers. .
Although the 2-0 win would have secured qualification, Emmanuel Gyamfi put the game beyond the Ugandans with the third goal on 83 minutes.
Ghana's next opponent will be Morocco in October.
The 2013 African Under-20 Championship will take place from March 16-30 in Algeria.
