1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
There historical background the civil service dates back to end of colonial masters and post independence period.
After the Second World War there were about 14 British Administration in the secretarial, 70 Nigerian support staff and one European stenographer.
The headquarter of most technical department which was in Ebutemetta. The headquarter of the nines was in does, that of the veterinary service was in vow while that of agriculture and forestry was in Ibadan field administration was co-ordinated from two centre, kaduna for north and Lagos later Enugu of the South.
In 1939, southern Nigeria was split into two regions estern and western region respectively.
