INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The name NTA means Nigeria Television Authority.  The station has brought forth over thirty other television stations in different parts of Nigeria.  It is headed by a general manager and six other managers who help in day to day running of business.  Nigeria Television Authority being a very big family has some roles they play as a communication Industry and these include:

1.                 To inform, entertain and enlighten their audience, maintaining its leadership position in Television broadcasting

2.                 Enrich the life of Nigerians by influencing positively his social, cultural, economic, political and technological thinking through a wide choice of programmes; to mention but a few.

    Nevertheless, the roles they play in communication Industry seem

to be carrying them away from giving their secretaries chana to contribute  our play their roles effectively in the communication industry.  They indulge in using their journalists and reporters for any information they need.  Managers and staff in the communication industries have equally acquired the knowledge of the use of modern office equipments like computers, tapes, and disc for information recording and report writing thereby neglecting the roles of efficient and effective secretaries especially when it comes to profession and effective secretaries especially when it comes to profession.

          Most of the employees in communication industries are mainly journalists, reporters/correspondent. And news casters with just a few copy typists.  The few secretaries there are not always recognized let alone givng them ample opportunity to exhibit their initiatives.  An investigation into Nigeria Television Authority proves that the secretaries there are not receiving adequate attention needed to motivate them and that when it comes to promotion, they are not promoted as and at when due; compared with their counterparts in other professions.  The bitter part of it all is that they see people whom they academically occupying higher positions and secretaries find themselves subordinate to incompleted ones as their boss.

          The success of an industry to a large extent is determined by how objective are effectively realized.  This in actual sense has to be done with the co-operation and efficiency of secretary.

          In addition, some executive, also contribute to a number of pitfalls in communication industry.  For instance, some of them do not allow their secretaries and employees to share in the organizational policies nor express their opinion on what they feel would help to achieve the industrial goals.  In this case, the boss or executive may not see it as the right of secretary to play such roles.

          The problem of this research project therefore is aimed at finding about the roles and performance efficiency and effectively of secretaries in communication industries since there has not been adequate literature written towards identifying these problems and how to curb them.  The researcher views it pertinent to sought  and investigate these problems and make proper recommendations and suggestions towards solving  them.
