The purpose of this research is to test the moderating effect of perceived support in the link connecting work engagement and turnover intention. A set of 360 surveys was given out to academics in the tertiary institutions in Nigeria and SmartPLS to test the hypotheses. The results verified the effect of supervisor support moderates the effect of work engagement on turnover intention whereas organizational support was not supported. Therefore, to validate the findings, a longitudinal study is required. Future studies should aim to consist of public/private higher institutions of learning in Nigerian. This study supports evidence for supervisors intervening effect on the link connecting work engagement and turnover intention in higher institutions of learning in the country. This paper provides theoretical evidence and a managerial base for potential scholars since Nigeria lacks investigations on moderating impact on distinctive effects.
