CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Employer provides work for employees just as employee on the other hand enables organization and nation to provide or produce goods and services for the ultimate benefit of mankind (O’ Donnell 2000).

This is essentially in the nation building process.  When goods are provided and services rendered, economy benefits also come to play.  According to an abstract of employment, employers pays workers for productivity and services.  This is of a symbolic advantage because just as employee help employers to make profit, the employer also give wages and salaries to employees to enable them meet their personal and domestic aspirations.

Fairly to pay wages and salaries has resulted in very important conflict in labour and management relation.  Therefore, wages and salaries according to Mackenzie is the most significant reward that would assist them to have a good standard of living.
Wages and salaries are used as motivational factors or strategies (Micheal A. 2005).  This is explain by piece: rate system which allows payment of wages in relation to job done, in addition, people have been seen to converse for work in organization, wages and salaries are no charitable grant by organization but a significant aspect of the right of worker in the productivity process.  Payment must be made for job done by labour.  Profit made should not only be for growth and development of companies while workers suffer physically and economically.
The idea of national minimum wage is based on the understanding of the fact that there must be a border line under which employers must not fall in the payment of salaries and wages to workers who need to maintain a living standard.

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
This research is carried out to evaluate wages and salaries administration on the performance of Nigeria civil service in Nigeria.  Despite the services rendered by the public sector, salary increment is still a problem.  The agitation for more salary is still on because of increasing level of standard of living.  The global economic crisis also has brought about the agitation for salary increment and this is the reason for almost all the industrial action being embarked by personnel working in Nigeria civil service.
           
In the case of salary increment, my research also recorded poor performance in Nigeria civil service.  This means that the services rendered are not commensurate to the money been paid an employee.  For instance even when there is increment for worker in Nigeria civil service, we still notice inadequate performance, this is applicable to all parastatals like water board, education sector, power holding company of Nigeria etc. with all this increment, why is the performance in Nigeria civil service still poor?
Could it be that wages and salaries administration are defective? Then this research work intend to find out the influence of wages and salaries administration in Nigeria civil service.

SCOPE OF THE STUDY
