Title:The crisis of operational efficiency in Nigerian administration
Author:Balogun, M.J.
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subject:public sector
Abstract:Proceeding from the premise that the capacity to attain goals within a certain period and with a given quantum of resources provides an adequate measure of government efficiency, this article seeks to assess the efficiencies of some governmental and para-governmental organizations in Nigeria. An attempt is also made to examine some of the constraints on, as well as suggestions for improving, public service efficiency. Attention is focused in particular on the proposals outlined by the (Udoji) Public Service Review Commission (set up by the Federal Military Government on 13 September 1972) for the enhancement of public efficiency.
