The authors call for reexamination of appointments and promotion processes in the Nigerian
tertiary educational system. Tracing the meaning, origin, and development of politics in
education, as well as politicization of appointments in tertiary institutions, they question today
emphasis on ethnic, political, and primordial considerations in terms of appointments and
promotion in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. They see the revigoration of the entire process and a
conscious and conscientious change to a more proactive process of employment which allows for
competition and excellence as a way out of the academic quagmire in Nigeria; else, the search
for quality education will simply be a mirage.
