Abstract
The subject matter of this research work is to examine the effect of  Nigerian Pidgin English on the academic performance among the National Open University of Nigeria Students in Benin Study Centre. The main objective of this research work was to find out the impact of Nigerian Pidgin English on students' communication and academic performance. The design used for the study is a descriptive survey method. The numbers of students used are one hundred and twenty-five (125) from the National Open University Benin Study Centre. Four research questions were formulated to guide the study, from which the questionnaire was designed. From the analyzed data, it showed that students frequently use Pidgin in their daily communication within the school premises, lack of effective usage of English language has prompted the student to use Pidgin in their communication and the use of Nigeria pidgin by male and female students has encouraged wrong use and expression of English language. It was recommended that staff and students in tertiary institutions across the federation should engage the use of Standard English language in the communication rather than the use of Nigeria Pidgin. In addition, the use of Nigerian Pidgin by students during official communication should be discouraged by implementing laws that can combat wrong use of English Language in the school environment....
