transport organization, suggests ways of minimizing the effects of the
problems of inefficient accounting information. It is believe that an
improvement in this regards will enhance the performance of the corporation.
To enable the researcher find solution to the problem of this study, some
questions were raised in the form of hypotheses, which were developed
comprising the null and alternative hypotheses. The methods of data
collection were primary and secondary data method. The data collected were
analyzed by use of simple percentages while chi-square was used to test the
hypothesis formulated for validity. Findings show that accounting information
is an indispensible tool in the management of Nigeria Railway Corporation
and the activities of unqualified and incompetent accounting officers are
responsible for the performance of the accounts departments in Nigeria

accountant should put more efforts especially when computing the financial
statement since accounts fraud result from ignorant of proper accounting
procedures. Since the financial statement are sources of document of
accounting information, efforts should be made in generating more relevant,
timely, effective and accurate accounting information necessary for
