Umar Dahiru Jongur and Aliyu Alhaji Jibrilla
It is standard in the literature on the human resource (or personnel) that building capacity of workers through training and development is key to the Improvement of the Efficiency and Effectiveness of the Public Service. This paper examines the capacity building efforts of local government administrators in Mubi-North local government area of Adamawa State. Using data obtained through questionnaire and interview and a variety of descriptive techniques we find that workers in the local government area do not seem to be adequately trained due to multitudes of intervening variables of politicking. Although, those who were able to benefit from such training appear to gain considerable skills that are manifested in terms of increased competence and efficiency in their service delivery. The research work, however, recommends that the activities of those who were in charge of staff training should uphold principles of the rule of law.
