This study investigates dramatic changes in the Nigerian public service in recent years. Specifically, it examines employee training and development in Nigeria's Immigration Services and the ways in which these have impacted employee performance. Using a sample of 82 respondents, the research portrays the paths which link training and development consequences with organisational effectiveness. In this framework, training and development consequences represent a proxy in which employee training, actions, attitudes, and behaviours affect job effectiveness. The results derived from multiple statistical analyses indicated a mixed significant. Implications for strategic employee training and development policies are imminent and suggestions for future research are discussed.
