Facilities management has transformed over the years from what was traditionally perceived to be mere facilities maintenance to a profession that integrates the management of an organization's buildings and infrastructure in order to create an environment that supports the primary objectives of that organization. This research aims to investigate the current state of facilities management practice in Nigeria using three major cities in the south-south geo-political zone as multi-case study. The study used both questionnaire and interview surveys to collect data from respondents who have had immense experience in the practice of facilities management. Findings reveal that there is a significant level of improvement in the practice of facilities management, with Real estate rated the component with the highest volume of activities while lack of awareness was rated the greatest challenge facing the profession in the zone. It was recommended that government at both state and federal should put in place proactive measures to encourage and expose the benefits of facilities management.
