EMPLOYMENT DISTRIBUTION POLICY IN THE NIGERIAN CIVIL SERVICE: A REVIEW
Keywords:Disparity, Civil Service, Employment Distribution, Political Influence, Nigeria
Attempts to capture the diverse nature of the country in the employment distribution in the civil service and to give the citizens some sense of belonging remain a big task in the Nigerian civil service. This paper reviews the causes of disparity in the employment distribution in the Nigerian civil service. The paper consulted Federal Character Commission, academics, non-governmental organizations, and unemployed graduates to ensure wide representation, and these were supported with scholarly articles to arrive at some critical findings. The research revealed that disparity continues to ravage the employment distribution in the Nigerian civil service because of the weak recruitment and selection process, absence of reliable data of employment, political influence, and bureaucratic influence, as well as conflict of interest. Finally, the paper recommended the provision of a valuable blueprint/guide in the employment distribution in the Nigerian civil service.
