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.
