Abstract

This paper is segmented into background, conceptual discourse: effective communication, and manpower development, findings and discussion, conclusion and recommendations. The main objective of this paper is to highlight the impact of effective communication and manpower development on local government administration in Nigeria. It is doubtful if the local governments can function and ultimately achieve their objectives without effective communication and developed manpower. Communication acts as a unifier of organizational activities, while manpower interprets and utilizes the communication to achieve the local government objectives. The study generated secondary data and used content analysis to analyse the data. The finding shows that effective communication and manpower development plans are vital tools to achieve functional local government administration in Nigeria. As a recommendation, it called on managers of the local government administration in Nigeria to be transparent and unambiguous in their communication process to achieve organizational effectiveness.
