INTRODUCTION
The importance of Training and Development is obvious given the growing complexity of the work environment, the rapid change in organization and advancement in technology, among other things. Training and development helps to ensure that organizational members possess the knowledge and skill they need to perform their jobs effectively; take on new responsibilities, and adapt to changing conditions. Despite the recognition of the importance of training by management experts and government are expressed in white papers on various reforms in Nigeria, the experience of manpower training and development in the Nigerian public service has been more of ruse and waste. Until recently there has been a general resistance to investment in training in the public service because of the belief that “employee hired under a merit system must be presumed to be qualified, that there were already trained for their job, and that if this was not so, it was at fault” (Stahl, 1976).

The assumption has been jettisoned as the need for training became obvious both in the private and the public sectors. Many organizations have come to recognize that training offers a way of “developing skills, enhancing productivity and quality of work, and building worker loyalty to the firm”. Indeed, the importance of training has become more obvious given the growing complexity of the work environment, the rapid change in organizations and technological advancement which further necessitates the need for training and development of personnel to meet the challenges.

Training and Development helps to ensure that organizational members possess the knowledge and skills they need to perform their jobs effectively, take on new responsibilities and adapt to changing conditions (Jones, George and Hill, 2000). It was further argued that training “help improve quality customer satisfaction, productivity, morale, management succession, business development and profitability”. Elaborating further on the importance of Human Resource Development (HRD), the International Labour Office (2000) affirmed that development and training improves their trainees’ “prospects of finding and retaining a job, improves their productivity at work, their income-earning capacity and their living standards and widens their career choices and opportunities”.

Management experts also argued that a major function of a manager is to develop people and to direct, encourage and train subordinates for optimum utilization Stahl (1986). Training helps prepare employees for certain jobs that are unique to the public sector. Specifically on Nigeria the Public Service Review Commission (PSRC) report in 1974 emphasized the importance of training and development. A result oriented public service will need to recruit and train specialized personnel. The new public service will require professionals who possess the requisite skill and knowledge training should be part of a comprehensive education planning programmes of all the aspects of personnel management perhaps the most important for us in Nigeria is training.

Three decades after, another reform endeavour (the 1988 civil reforms) emphasized obligatory.
