The design of the study was the descriptive survey design. The population of the study was all the 13,784 academic staff and non-academic senior administrative staff in both the Federal and State Universities in the study area. The sample of the study consisted of 1,379 University staff.

Data were collected using a researcher-made structured questionnaire title, "Information and Communication Technology and Staff Questionnaire (ICTSQ)". And an Interview Schedule (IS). The ICTSQ was subjected to a reliability analysis using Cronbach Alpha which yielded a reliability co-efficient of 0.77. Mean and standard deviation was used to answer the research questions while chi-square (X2) test of goodness was used to test the hypotheses. Data collected from the interview schedule was analysed using simple percentages. The findings of the study showed that internet services had significant influence on staff job performance. There was also a significance influence of the use of animations on staff job performance. Another finding indicated that use of laptop had significant influence on staff job performance.
