What do Nigerian Universities do with Research Project Reports?

​These are research project reports of students of a Nigerian tertiary institution in waste dump.

This is how knowledge and information are managed in Nigeria. Even in 2017 Nigerian universities can be said to lack the culture and reasoning to maintain a good archiving or library system as seen in Timbuktu libraries: holding up to 700,000 manuscripts since the 13th century.

Nigerian universities have never been known to value research projects. To them it is just an academic activity that students go through to get a degree or diploma. They pass this notion to students who go on to become professors, administrators or educationists with that same wrong mentality.

We are in the age of information. Our universities and government should invest more on library and information management systems and education or be perpetually left behind.
