Maidoki B. Peter, Dahida Deewua Philip


The 21st century has brought about a changing environment in the structure, practice and recruitment process in many countries including India and Nigeria. These innovations have tremendous impact in public service delivery. Yet some countries are still caged with their moribund practice of traditional system of administration with an ineffective and inefficient recruitment in their civil services. This paper there fore, examines recruitment strategy in India and Nigeria using secondary source of data collection. The study revealed that, the Indian civil service is more efficient and effective in recruiting more qualified staff. This is so because their recruitment is based on qualification and merit system. On the other hand, the recruitment policy in Nigeria is highly controversial and complex in nature as emphasis is laid on quota system also known as Federal character Principles where merit is being compromised. We recommends that, both the Indian and Nigerian civil service commissions should be given more autonomous existence as this would enable them discharge their functions and responsibilities effectively without fear or favor.
