Abstract:
In Nigeria, the issue of low productivity has been an issue for concern- especially more in the public sector than in the private sector. Productivity is the efficient use of resources labour, capital, land, material, materials, energy, and information-in the production of various goods and service This study has tried to review literature on the causes of low productivity in public sector in Nigeria. The study used content analysis. From the study, it is clear that low productivity in public service is attributed to factors like weak effective salary and wages administration, political interference and corruption, inadequate motivation, lack of training and development, insecurity of job as result of casualization of staff, poor funding etc. Some of the recommendations are that low productivity being experienced in the Nigeria public service, will be a history if public servants are well trained, paid , motivated, and certain about the security of their job.
