The paper carefully examines the effect of the Nigerian pidgin english on the academic performance of university students using University of Uyo as a case study. The current status of pidgin english mostly used by students was also analysed.
In view of the findings, the use of Pidgin in formal setting should be discouraged since it has not been given its rightful recognition. Its coming into the institution is affecting the students’ academic performance. It is of uttermost importance that further research be conducted into the Nigerian Pidgin usage in order to ensure its standardization before it can be welcomed fully in the educational system and the country at large.
