PROBLEMS OF MANAGEMENT IN GOVERNMENT OWNER CORPORATIONS A CASE STUDY OF ENUGU STATE WATER CORPORATION

INTRODUCTION
Management is said, to be the heart and engine of any organization. Campbell and Gregg (1957) defined Management as a “distinct process consisting of planning, organizing, actuating and controlling the work of others performed to determine and accomplish objectives”.  It is pertinent to state that no worthwhile organization can grow beyond the managerial competencies of the said organization.
Nigeria, being one of the developing countries in the world is yet to provide enough social amenities to her citizenry inspite of the abundant human and material resources at her disposal.  Specifically, all the efforts of government towards the provision of water to all the nooks and crannies in the country have not yielded any good fruit principally because of lack of ineptitude, law technological progress, low labour productivity, lack of unity of purpose and under funding in our public corporations.  The most worrisome of all these is that the management cadre which is a sine qua non for any organizational success is lacking in Nigeria.
The 1999 constitution on the Federal Republic of Nigeria Stated that, 
The State shall control the national economy in such manner as to secure the maximum welfare, freedom and happiness of every citizen on the basis of social justice and equality of status and opportunity.
