The worst is that they cannot leave the office until their working hour is over form the researcher findings also, it is seen that the efficient management is what is needed to guilt the organization in proper decision making.

Finally, fear of blame prevents the workers form using their initiatives in doing something has not helped maters at all companies and advertising agent who want to patronize NTA Enugu Commercial department are in financial improvement have not yielded the desired result.

Therefore, the management of government parastatals has not been effective and efficient.
