Description One defect that is easily noticed among some students of university, polytechnic or college of education in Nigeria in contemporary time is their inability to communicate effectively in both spoken and written English even though they are taught English for Academic Purposes (EAP) either in form of “Use of English” or “General English” depending on the institution before they graduate. Linguistic scholars have considered the defect as one of the major factors responsible for poor academic performance among some students of tertiary institutions in Nigeria. In recognition of this fact, this paper primarily reviewed the state of affairs with regard to the implementation of the EAP curriculum in tertiary institutions and pointed out some of the anomalies. The paper, however, highlighted some measures considered to be adequate and appropriate for the effective implementation of the EAP curriculum in tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
