Abstract

This study investigated the use of ICT for decision-making in North-Central Nigerian universities. It adopted a correlation design, in which four out of the seven federal universities were chosen, using stratified random sampling techniques. A total of 240 participants responded to an instrument entitled: ICT and Decision-making Questionnaire. The data collected were analysed using means, frequency counts, percentage, rank ordering and chi-square. Findings revealed that printing ICT equipment were adequate while electronic equipment were fairly adequate in the universities. In addition, ICT has been effectively utilized for decisions on students’ registration procedures and budgeting. Inadequate funding and ICT equipment were ranked topmost among problems of ICT in the universities. Based on the findings, recommendations towards more effective deployment of ICTs in the universities operations are made.

Keywords: Decision making; Nigerian universities; ICT.
