This research paper examines the effects of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) on Nigerian educational system with a focus on Kogi State University (KSU), Anyigba. The study employed the survey method, choosing 40 academic staff, five library staff, 5 management staff and 250 students randomly from the seven (7) faculties at KSU. A questionnaire containing 39 questions was administered using mean (X) and standard deviation (SD) and t-test to analyze the data. The hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance and a coefficient of 0.85 was established using the statistical tool of Pearson product moment correlation coefficient. The result among other things showed that (1) lack of ICT professional, resources, infrastructure and management support affects effective teaching and learning and research development in Nigerian schools, (2) common challenges include but not limited to poor funding, lack of infrastructure, lack of technical support and lack of professional development in ICT use and integration into curriculum. It is the recommendation of this study among other things, that the government and her agencies should support their own ICT policy by providing funding to schools and to also look at curriculum changes that encourages ICT integration.
