INTRODUCTION

Information could be seen as the hub of every education system. Every activity in education depends on the degree of understanding and interpretation of information received and given out by the principal in the school.

Information according to Wehmeier (2000) is any fact or details about something, to provide, give, pass on information, to collect, gather, receive and obtain an idea. This implies one getting or receiving a new idea or knowledge from his immediate environment or beyond from a given source.

In line with the above definition, Ifelunni (2002) defines information as any valid, reliable and useable data about the world of work, education and or personal social life. Also British professional (1999) sees information as data presented in such a way as to be of some meaning to the person who receives it.

This entails that information is to serve a purpose to the receiver. Hence, for any information to be useful, it must be relevant, complete, based on facts and cost-effective.
