Abstract

This study examined corruption, university governance and development with focus on the

University of Nigeria. This is because governance plays a critical role in the success of any

organization, especially higher education which is the bedrock of national development. The

study is a descriptive qualitative analysis, while data was collected through secondary sources.

Systems theory served as the theoretical framework. The findings show that there have been

systematic decline and collapse of research in Nigerian universities, particularly the University

of Nigeria, as the bulk of research conducted by lecturers in the institution are neither related to

nor determined by the demand and priories of the Nigerian economy, society and polity. The

study further demonstrated that rapid deteriorating of hostel facilities, overcrowding and undue

congestion in rooms, over-stretched lavatory, laundry facilities and poor sanitation. It therefore,

concludes that governance in the University of Nigeria has not had positive impact on teaching,

research and development in the institution. The study therefore, recommends imperative for

university leaders to be re-oriented in consonance with acceptable democratic and international

standards in the management of the system. In this regard, there must be a total overhauling of

the system such that universities in Nigeria would be run properly.
