Abstract


The paper examined the implication of employee’s placement in national development using federal ministries in Nigeria as focus of the study. It examined the competence of occupants of offices to implement national development plan; examined the relationship between employee’s placement and national development as well as challenges confronting employee’s placement and national development. This was with a view to providing information on whether employee’s placement enhances national development. Purposive sampling technique was used to select 6 ministries from 28 ministries available and proportional sampling technique was used to obtain 400 respondents from these ministries while random sampling technique was used to administer questionnaire to the respondents. Data collected were analysed using mean, percentages and correlation statistical analysis. The results showed that the choice of occupants into the offices were not based on KSAO; showed positive relationship between employee’s placement and national development at 5% sig. level while God fatherism and quota system were the major challenges confronting employee’s placement and national development. However, it was concluded that employee’s placement should be based on information provided in job analysis. Thus, recommended that objectivity and KSAO should be the yardstick for employee’s placement.
