1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
According to Nwankwo (1992) in his book education and training for the
public sector management in Nigeria states, that one of the most pressing
problems of development in the newly emerging nation of Asia, Africa and
Latin America is the lack of management capability for planning and
implementation of government programmes as well as the delivery of various
social services. Most of these developing countries have inherited from their
colonial masters a system of administration and management that was
designed for the maintenance of few basic services, law and order.
The administration and sub-culture have been persisted after independence
despite the effort of these countries to individualize their public sector
bureaucracies, but the rapid race at which programmes and projects are being
either undertaken or sought b the developing nation calls for a different kind
of managerial expertise in the public sector.
In Nigeria, the nationalists that took over the administration of this country
after independence in 1960 were faced with the issue of nationalizing the
various segments of the economy for the achievement of rapid technological
and industrial growth. In most growing economy then, money was in short
supply. Additionally, skilled manpower was in short supply and private
investments were therefore very low. Government with relative capital has
therefore failed an irresistible temptation of going in to detect investment in
economic ventures. But of recent, there has been the notion that the
government owned enterprises are having problem in policy implementation.
This research will in this study look into the problem of policy
implementation on the performance of Nigeria public sector organization with
special reference to the Nigerian Telecommunication Limited Enugu, The
publisher of printer newspaper.
The Nigerian Telecommunication Limited Enugu was established
immediately after the creation of Delta State on 27th August 1991, from the
former Bendel State.
Its primary responsibility is to gather and disseminate information within
Delta State and Nigeria in general. The affairs of this company is run by
board of directors whose members and chairman are politically appointed by
the state government.
The board is to lay down policy of the company while the chief executive
officer (General manager) sees to the day-to-day implementation and running
of the affairs of the company. At present the affairs of this company is group
into the following departments, administration, finance, engineering,
distribution, commercial and operation.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Okigbo (1994) said that the failure of parastatals is not inherent in the nature
of the enterprise. The failure is due to the incapacity of the owner and their
agenda to allow management to mange the enterprise. This is one of the many
statements made by prominent scholars in Nigeria about government owned
enterprises in Nigeria. Many of them are run at loss and government
complained while the management of these enterprises accused her of total
neglect and undue interference.
It is therefore on this basis that the researcher has considered it important to
investigate these enterprises with special reference to Nigerian
Telecommunication Limited Enugu to look further into possible solutions to
such problems as
1. Identifying the causes of non-implementation of management
policies in the public sector organization and making due
recommendations as a way of solving the problem
2. How the integrity of managers in POINTER influences policy
implementation and its reflection on the assignment of
3. Finding ways and means of improving efficiency and effectiveness
in the implementation of policies in the said public sector.
1.3 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The public enterprises in Nigeria as we have seen are characterized by
many problems as regards policy implementation. This research work
attempts to examine how to make the public sector more efficient and
The prudence of the management workforce, policies depicts and efficient
and effective organization. This study therefore tries to discuss .
(i) Problems of implementation of management policy in the
Nigeria public sector.
(ii) Remedies to the said problems and means of improving
efficiency in the said sector.
(iii) Strategies for such policy implementation and for alienation
of public bureaucracies for efficiency in the said sector.
(iv) Finally is making due recommendation in subsequent chapter
of this research work..
1.4 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
In any research work, it is important to state its scope and limitation so that
criticisms and or praises will be based on the areas one has covered. Same
applies to this study, hence the study was focused on identifying and
analysing, the role of policy implementation on the performance of Nigeria
public sector organization and making recommendation especially as it
concern the Nigerian Telecommunication Limited Enugu.
1.5 RESEARCH QUESTIONS
The following research questions were obtained from the administrative
section of the Nigerian Telecommunication Limited Enugu to enhance this
research work to the standard expected.
(i) What are the problems of management policies in this organization
(ii) Do you think the fundamental managerial setting in NITEL is
suitable for another organization?
(iii) What strategies do you envisage in order to meet management
(iv) What other machineries do you use in your organization?
(v) Does government interference influences management decisions?
(vi) Are you aware that for a manager to be successful and efficient, he
needs a sound training and experience?
1.6 RESEARCH HYPOTHESIS
The following hypothesis have been generate as a guide in this study:

Telecommunication Limited Enugu is not an impediment in the
implementation and interpretation of policies.
Hi: Government intervention in the operations and policies of Nigerian
Telecommunication Limited Enugu is an impediment in the
implementation and interpretation of policies.

Hi: Discontinuity in the work life span of managers and their tenure in
office does reflect the results we get from the public sector.
Ho: Political appointment and continued interference in the public sector

Hi: Political appointment and continued interference in the public sector
with reference to NITEL does affect policy implementation.
1.7 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
Lesser attention has been paid to problems of policy implementation in the
public sector while more emphasis is being placed on their productivity for
the fact that this study is focused on the said problems in the public sector.
The researcher took an in-depth look at the said problem before narrowing it
down to NITEL.
A well established management machinery or a smooth running managerial
team enable the organization to enjoy the multiple effect of its merits.
