The administrators were the Vice-Chancellors, Deputy Vice-Chancellors, Registrars, Librarians, Bursars, Heads of Departments, Deans of Faculties and Postgraduate Schools, Directors of Programmes and Services, and Provosts of Colleges. A sample of eight universities selected through stratified random sampling was used for the study. This comprised three State, two Federal, and three Private universities. The ex post facto research design of an analytical survey was employed. Three research questions were raised and answered. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data which were analyzed using the Pearson's Product Moment Correlation.
