INTRODUCTION

Public service is a service where federal, state or local government has an interest or where its presence is felt. It is a very wide organ, encompassing the civil service, the school system, the judicially, the local government system, the security agents, government companies and public service is of great importance to any given state. The purpose of the state is to maximize the potentials of its citizens by providing basic rights, liberty, security and welfare. And government exist to enable the state realize the above objective. For such to be done, the government needs efficient and well-informed public service. The bulk of decision and actions undertaken by government are influenced and implemented by the public service. The public service provides the modern government the requisite structure and procedure necessary for efficient administration and good governance.

        Public service will ever remain relevant in the scheme of politics of politics and administration in Nigeria not only because it is well scheme of polities and administration in Nigeria not only because it is well positioned to do so but more importantly because of its long history, experience and specialization.

         However, the Nigerian public service is said to be suffering from a seemingly endemic illness. Prior to the military intervention in political in 1966, there existed the spirit of comradeship, neutrality, high efficiency and so on. The enthusiasm and dynamism, which followed the organization of the Nigeria civil service, which hitherto remained one central public service, provided strong and healthy governments.

        Thus, the emergence of the military in polities made Nigeria political climate to become unfortunate. This greatly affected the public service. Besides, it made the public service to have a conquered history for it was moving in tandem with the style of government. There exist other problems such as corruption, poor communication system. And gradually, high productivity and efficiency fade away as a consequence. The researcher ascertained that the foretasted problems affected the Nigerian television authority channel 6 Aba (NTA) negatively, and recommended that public service will only realize its objectives if the diseases are cured.

1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The Nigerian Television Authority channel 6 Aba date back to July 1964 when the then eastern Nigeria broadcasting service, which had two television, station at Enugu and Aba. Then Aba station was a booster. The Aba station was totally destroyed after the civil war and was refurbished with a 10kw Thompson CSF transmitter. The east central broadcasting service Tv (ECRSTV) channel 6 Aba was its name then. It re-command transmission in September 1974 still, as a booster to the one in Enugu. It offered effective service to viewer in the current Imo and Abia states. South East states (now Cross Rivers state), Rivers state, parts of Bendel state and some parts of Equatorial Guinea and the Cameroun’s.

           The Imo broadcasting service inherited the Television station in Aba. With the creation of Imo state in 1976, the Nigeria Television, channel 6 Aba became fully independence for the first time. Later, in 1976, the station was taken over by the Nigerian Television Authority but formally came into existence with the promulgation of decree No 24 of 1977 and channed to color transmission in the same year with the aid of a Thompson CSF 003 var specifically bought for that purpose.

        In February, a second transmmitor a 10kw Philips PYE TX was installed to boost operation. Two microwave stations were as well established in Owerri and Ohaekelem as part of NTA DOMSAT network to enable NTA channel 6 Aba transmit NTA national programmed NTA is today witnessing the commissionary of yet another new digitalized equipment, the Rhodea and Showers 10kw T and studio equipment, which is hoped will tremendously improve the station’s operations with the station’s logo pioneering excellence in broadcasting there is no doubt NTA Aba has come of age and with the commission, of the digital transmitter and computerized studio equipment it shall be able to re-establish viewer ship in the states.

1.2         THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

Mc Gregor Douglas theory X and theory y. the two opposing theories draws much from self fulfillment prophesy that the attitude of subordinate are regarded reinforce by the deposition of their bosses (manager) to them in terms of the level of trust and confidence.

        The study is structured along side this theory as managers perceptions and the attitudes towards their subordinate, determined the subordinate reforms in the public service. The theory is considered as a framework in examining the attitude of workers in the public service.       

 1.3 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

 2. Does public service enhance development in the state?

3. What are the obstacles encounter by the public    service in the course of discharging its duties.

It is argued that the study would contribute to our knowledge the importance of the public service and the problems empedy the efficiency of the public service.

        It will also be of great importance to the political leaders, policy makers and all others who are involved in the public service.

        The organization understudy (NTA ABA) will benefit because with the result of the study, it will be armed with the way of doing things so as to attain the best result. NTA Aba must improve and design strategies on how to influence and motivate employees.

        Furthermore, it will be of help for further research.
