The sinking ship has to be salvaged and hands must be on deck.

5.3 Recommendations

There is an urgent need to actually depersonalize and depolitics the public sector.

Public enterprises need to recover from this ailment, naturally they are seemingly healthy but they are all walking corpses because they have neither improved nor put in place new projects or maintained the existing ones.

But these recommendations will prove themselves antidote if properly put into practices.

1. Merit system

Recruitment, placement, promotion and training should be made purely on merit and not on the resolution of the principle of ethnicity. The federal character devoid of ethnicity and parochial has in process as a imitation from the public sector will help to elevate efficiency.

2. Motivation

Managers should work hand in hand with workers in deciding on mattered affecting them because it would boost the morale of workers and give them that sense of belonging in the organization, prompt payment of remuneration salaries, allowances, benefits, arrears, overtime, pension scheme and gratuity to the management workforce in addition to health care faculties, comfortable work environment, promotion, any form of carrot can serve etc, this will help energize and boost personnel performance. This can be achieved through the application of management by objectives MBO. This is a self goal setting approach that makes the employee see his own goal in ways of achieving contract between management and employee if the employees are duly recognized, efficiency and effectiveness will be better implemented. However, the practice of MBO should be done with care to avoid the employee taking the opportunity to defraud the organization. MBO gives workers the opportunity of knowing how and why they are so rated. This makes room for change of attitude and improvement on the side of the employee. The issue of victimization of workers by their boss is also reduced through the open appraisal system. Also management should have a destined policy on promotion and advancement of workers.
