This study investigated the Influence of Principals’ Role Performance on the Management of Facilities in Public Secondary Schools in North-Central Zone, Nigeria. Specifically two objectives were formulated to investigate the influence of principals’ role performance on the management of Infrastructural facilities and Instructional facilities. Two research questions and two null hypotheses were raised in line with the specific objectives. A descriptive survey research design was employed for the study. The study population comprises all public secondary school principals and teachers totaling 2,198 and 34,460 in all the six states and FCT Abuja in North-Central Zone, Nigeria. The Research Advisor 2006 was adopted for the sample selection of 333 principals and 381 teachers from the 333 public secondary schools. Data were collected from self-developed structured questionnaire titled “Principals’ Role Performance on Management of Facilities Questionnaire” (PRPMFQ) made up of 20-items.
