Motivation is referred from people’s behaviours and cannot be directly observed or measured. However, personal management has evolved a member of techniques to improve workers performance through motivation.
Ukeje (1992:76) stressed that “motivation” is a force which energizes and induce a staff to perform. Based on this assertion, Dugguh (2004) has it that, differences in levels of performance is a reflection of difference in levels of motivation. At any point, staffs vary in the extent to which are willing to direct their energies towards the attainment of the objectives of the organization.
The performance of the staff is as a result of the ability or skills of the workers to use this ability or skills in the actual performance of the job and the motivation they receive to use this ability or skills in the actual performance of the job. The researcher is interested in the personnel management problem and how it affects the performance of secondary school teachers in Ankpa Local Government Area of Kogi State.
