Subject:administrative reform
Abstract:This article reflects on adminstrative reforms in Nigeria, highlighting some effects of global dynamics on the nation's administrative reform model. The authors argue that administrative reform in Nigeria is an imitation of earlier reforms in countries such as Britain, France and the United States of America. Imitating reforms implemented elsewhere is not necessarily wrong, but the authors emphasize the need for a guiding strategic vision. They argue that such a vision has been absent in Nigeria and that this has negatively affected professionalization in the civil service. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
