Administrative Practice in Nigeria: Implications for National Development
Administration cannot be practiced in isolation of the culture of the society. This assertion implies that the knowledge, attitude, societal norms and orientation which people hold epitomize their administrative philosophy and the way it is practiced. Administration in Nigeria is practiced in ways and manners which will benefit the administrator and in most cases not in the best interest of the common man. Whether in the private sector or in the public sector, the Nigerian administrators would normally use their positions and every other resource at their disposal to amass pecuniary interests for themselves. Hence, for a turn around and development of the economy, there should be a reorientation of the society apparently through proper education and training for the professional administrators as well as general attitudinal change to the way administrative functions are performed; that is, a new administrative philosophy which will inculcate in the society the true and genuine spirit of administration should be institutionalized in the country.
