1.1 Background to the Study
Nigeria as a nation has recognized the potential of information and communication technology (ICT) in new educational system. The national policy on computer education emphasised the need for the integration of ICT into the Nigeria educational system. The main purpose of ICT in university education is to involve university management into teaching and learning processes with the aid of ICT facilities. ICT facilities comprises internet, e-mail, computer assisted machine (CAM), e-library, facsimile telephone among others. However, ICTs represent a cluster of associated technologies defined by their functional usage in information accessed communication which also involve internet. Internet is worldwide network of computers, and a network of people using computers that make vast information available. The researcher observed the entire world as a global village. Technological advancement has brought information and communication technology (ICT) into virtually all human endeavours, including teaching and learning processes, acquisition of computer literacy skills as well as good face-value certificate. The researcher also sees that ICT has redefined living globally.
1.2 Statement of the Problem
The researcher observed that inspite of the much importance attached to the usefulness of ICT, most universities in Nigeria are not making use of this helpful tool maximally. Much is still needed to be done to improve ICT, especially in the area of communication; maintenance of records, decision making, planning, discipline; interpersonal relationship; staff development; student welfare/health services and provision of games/recreation services. 5 It has also been observed by the researcher that ICT infrastructure in most of these universities are grossly inadequate, most universities management staff, Heads of Departments and lecturers still carry office works to private business centres. Also, it is worthy to note that ICT is faced with myriads of constraints, which have restricted its efficient and effective use. The importance and usefulness of ICT cannot be overemphasized. The National Policy on Education (2014) recognizes the prominent role of Information Communication Technology ICT in the modern world today hence the integration of ICT in Education in Nigeria. Information has a vital role to play in human life and others area such as staff development, discipline, planning, decision making process, maintenance of records, communication and students welfare/health services in the universities in Nigeria.
