                                                                   Abstract

The study is on university academics’ perceptions of Nigeria’s ceding of Bakassi to Cameroun without plebiscite. The study derives its significances in the Anyoku’s (2012) criticisms of Nigeria’s handing over of Bakassi to Cameroun; and Soyinka’s (2012) belief on self-determination by the Bakassi people. A total of 118 university academics of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Nigeria, of 25-65 years were used. The instrument was Likert (1932) format Check-list. The sampling was multi-stage method with 2×3 independent groups post facto designs. The statistics were Repeated Factor Independent Sample Test, and One-Way ANOVA analyses. The findings at P<.05 were (1) University academics perceived the use of the International Court in settling the Bakassi international disputes as not being rational. (2) university academics perceived Nigeria’s decision to handover Bakassi to Cameroun without plebiscite as inadequate. (3) Gender of university academics did not significantly influence their perceptions of the inadequacy of Bakassi handover without plebiscite, in which both genders had above average with the female gender having higher perception. (4) University academics educational levels significantly influenced their perceptions of the inadequacy of Bakassi handover without plebiscite, in which all the academic levels had above average perception with doctorate degree holders having higher perception. (5) Professional cadre of university academics was significant in the perceptions of the inadequacy of ceding of Bakassi to Cameroun without plebiscite, in which all the professional cadres had above average perception with high cadre academics having higher perception. Recommendations are: Nigeria, Cameroun, and the international community should conduct plebiscite on Bakassi’s nationality. This will resolve many psychosocial identity crises arising from the Nigeria’s ceding of Bakassi to Cameroun.
