Sub-Saharan African nations are poor and many factors have been identified as contributing to differing levels of their achievement. Prominent among these factors has been the argument that public sector organizations have often performed inefficiently (Nafziger, 1997; Ndulu and van de Walle 1996; Rasheed, Beyene and Otobo, 1994; Szeftel, 1983). The public servants in the sub-region have been accused of failing to provide politicians with sound advice on public policy. They have also been accused of taking on inappropriate roles as well as being agents of mismanagement and waste of public funds (Adamolekun, 1999).
