CHAPTER ONE

 

INTRODUCTION

1.1            BACKGROUND OF STUDY

In any developing economy, the government is the main initiator and promoter economic development, especially in Nigeria.  In developing countries, governments usually intervene some areas of the economic in which the private sector cannot perform, according to Abubalar (1986) in order to facilitate the federal government has instituted and made use of many public enterprises over the years.

It would be recalled however that in the fifties and sixties, agriculture was the main stay of the Nigeria economy.  The early seventies earned for Nigeria loge enude oil revenue at a level that never was anticipated.  This new dimension got government involved more with videly diversified investments in areas that span both the traditional public sector and exclusive private sector business.

As a result of this development in chide oil, agriculture that was the main stay of our economy was later given less attention. Owing to this circumstance, the government investments were sponsored mostly by the oil revenues.  The oil boom era (1974-1979) has been described as the golden era for public investment.  The government invested in over 30 parastatals and companies within this period.  Most of them have been unprofitable, some cannot even meet their operating costs and have depended on government subventions for their year to year survival.

Public co-operations in Nigeria have been considered inefficient and wistful.  This is because they have viewed it with the profit criterion.  Kindleberger (1986) however Hinks that this is not a fair judgment, economic activities, it is usually not appropriate to use the performance standard of the private sector “they are hoses is different colours, the objective of private business is profit, while the government enterprises is seines to the society or promotion of general welfare”.

Olisa (1985) said that prior to independent and after Nigeria was faced with the problem of attaining her social-economic objectives, there was no well destined capitalist class that could operate the much needed development through their productive and industrializing activities.  The civil services at that time was inappropriate for accelerated development and the country was saddened with the problem of running many business.

These parastatals are established out side the civil services and this allows for greater freedom of action, quicker decision making which will promote their efficiency and effectiveness.  These corporations are managed through government appointed officials who could utilize the profits accruing from their operations in catering for the public interest (onwudunmi:1970).

(ugwu:1990) said that in Nigeria, it is very unfortunate that government have rapid development and this is because the management of these enterprises have constituted the bane of these enterprises.  Most of them failed to meet people’s expectations in terms of provision of goods and services and development in general.  The commercially oriented ones neither make profits or even sustain themselves.  All efforts by successive government yield no positive result despite various commissions of inquiry and review parties. The performance of these enterprises still fall short’s of people’s expectation. It is based on this that the researcher finds the need to investigate these problems in Anambra motors manufacturing company (ANAMMCO).

 

 

 

1.2            HISTORICAL  BACK GROUND OF ANAMBRA MOTOR MANUFACTURING COMPANY.

Anambra motor manufacturing company incorporated on the 17th of January 1977, was commissioned on the 8th of july 1980 ,and started official production in January 1981.

The company , which has a staff stein 9th of seven hundred and ninety – four and an installed capacity of producing seven thousand and five hundred commercial vehicles (T nick assembly) annually is presently utilizing fifteen (15%) of installed capacity . its product range includes Mercedes Benz trucks and buses of various sizes, fire fighting vehicles, ambulance, refuse disposal vans as well as vehicle refurbishment. It is however worthy of not that its production actinty is limited to assembly and spare parts sales.

Incorporated with an authorized and fully paid up share capital of seven million naira ,ANAMMCO was set up under a joint agreement between Nigeria and Daimlar Mercedes Benz of Germany .Although it was initially licensed to produce trucks, it later went into the production of buses.

And they set up with the objective of manufacturing and marketing Mercedes Benz trucks and buses ,assisting in manpower development through technology training, acceviating transport problem in the country, helping to reduce unemployment in the country. ANAMMCO is located at Emene near Enugu.

With company operations organised into six functional divisions and numerous departments under the division. Its board of director is made up of six members. Anambra Motor manufacturing company has two workers union –the senior and junior staff union.

 

1.3            STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM.

It is important to note that public enterprises in any given economy has important role to play in the rapid socio-economic development of the country.

Government owned enterprises and business in Nigeria are established to accelerate the pace of economic development in which government is the major investor. Due to the important roles associated with the major public enterprises in Nigeria. There is need for good management for its efficiency. It is a fact that government spends large sums of money in setting up these enterprises and thus, looks forward to making profit. As a result of inefficiency in running these enterprise, federal government and state government have in the recent past set up committee which studied the public corporations and parastatals and recommended privatization and commercialization of some of these enterprises. These enterprises perform so poorly than privately owned business.

Since public enterprises are important in growth of any economy, there is the need to investigate the problems of public enterprises in Nigeria? Also, there is need to identify the reasons for criticism leveled against them. Despite the enormous investment in public enterprises, is Nigeria obviously not getting good value for the money being speny or invested on these public enterprises. This gives the decision to this research on “management problems of public enterprises in Enugu state” using ANAMMCO as a case study.
