ABSTRACT
Statistical consulting is a growing field but its relevance has not been fully appreciated, especially in many Nigerian Universities and Higher Institutions. This paper posits that acquisition of statistical consulting/collaboration skills among higher education students is highly instrumental to educational and research development in Nigeria. We survey the awareness, practice and teaching of statistical consulting in one of Nigeria’s foremost universities. We also offer some suggestions for improvement and conclude by proposing a way forward for Universities in Sub-Saharan Africa to adopt.
