1.1      BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Broadcasting cooperation has come a long way. This organisat6ion has been in existence even before the independence.  During the time of colonial masters, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe returned to Nigeria from Gold- Cost, now Ghana and he then founded the West African Pilot, which he edited.  This mass media helps to criticize the evils of colonialism and highlighted the necessity of granting independence to Nigeria. A day to independence, the Eastern Nigeria Broadcasting cooperation TV (ENBC/TV) was established. Broadcasting co-operation in general performs the same type of work in their respective organizations.  The ways by which these cooperation’s especially government owned ones can be made to perform their broadcasting function better than they are at present is the issue at stake.

        However, visit to any of the Nigeria organization will convince one of the clear lack of managerial know-how in such establishment.  Indiscipline, authoritative leadership reign supreme so much that the situation gets worst as one get to the level of the organizational policy is tends to act as a deterrent rather than facilitators of decision-making. It is on this note therefore that this research work became possible solutions to the problems associated with the effective service delivery in government owned establishment in which Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS) Awka was selected as a case study.
