CHAPTER ONE

  • INTRODUCTION
  • BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The impact of manpower in the social, political and economic training and retraining of any local government can hardly be over-emphasized. The organization more especially local government system is never known to have attained or sustained any high level of economic growth and retraining without an ample supply of qualified or effective administration and management to the establishment. People of that locality are usually used to manage their affairs and achieve the set goals of the community. The above statement explain that local government system are establishment and expected to perform and as well carry out some specific responsibilities in improving the living standard of their local dwellers and this cannot be achieved without improving the workers productivity through training and retraining .

       According   to   Orewa. A and Adewumi, E. (1992) “ local government is a system of local communities and towns which are organized  to maintain law and order to provide some limited range of social service and operations to the inhabitants in joint endeavors toward. The improvement of their condition   of living”.

  This simply implies that local government provides the community with formal organization framework which enables them to conduct their affairs effectively and regulate the actions of members.

        According to Akingele (1981) defined it as “a political submission of law which is constituted by law and has substantial control of local affairs “this connotes that they are established for the improvement of the standard living of the local dwellers.

       According to federal republic of Nigeria guidelines for” local council is government exercised through representative council established by law to exercise specific powers within ones as. Local government system constitutes the third tier of government in a direct contact with the grassroots. By this very fact it is therefore, expected to play a major role in the rural or local communities. More specifically, they have to find solution consistently to the pyramids of socio-economic problems paying the administration of local government of Owerri municipal council. These problems include poor finding, lack of qualified staff or personnel material inadequacies, poor manpower disposition reflected staffing, placement, ineffective or greedy leadership and lack of motivation, use or poor training and re-training of staff. Use of wrong personnel. Etc. The fact has been widely acknowledged that local government of Owerri municipal council is still a far cry from their mission. Today it is recognized as part of   the reason why most of the local government cannot completely make use of both human and material (non-human) resources available to them. The manpower training is a critical favor in economic development of Owerri municipal council. The local government which is unable to employ skills and knowledge of its manpower and utilize them effectively will not develop. The essence of any manpower training is to enhance the welfare of workers by maximizing their skill and the quality of their employment opportunities and in so doing. It will add to the country’s economic strength.

 According to Nwankwo (1993) defined manpower as “the process by which an organization ensure that it has the right number of people and the right kind of people, at the right place at the right time. Doing things for which they are economically most useful”.

       Thus all manpower training is aimed at human resources development and utilization. The quality of manpower as the most important factor that will determine whether an organization will be successful and achieved its stated objectives.
