ABSTRACT 
This study investigates the issue of staff training and development in 
local government in Nigeria by the local government service 
commission with a particular focus on Enugu state Local 
Government Service Commission from 1999 to 2009. Adopting 
structural functional analysis as its theoretical framework of analysis, 
three hypotheses were formulated to guide the investigation. To 
validate these hypotheses and the principal research questions of the 
study, data were collected through primary, sources (observation and 
questionnaire as well as interviews) and secondary sources: 
textbooks, internet materials, journals, newspaper, and government 
documents. The data from questionnaire which contained twenty 
structured questions designed in both open and close ended style 
was validated and administered accordingly. The data from the 
questionnaires were subjected to statistical analysis. Results revealed 
that, although Enugu state Local Government Service Commission 
implement staff training and development in local government, 
inadequate funding of training and development programmes and 
selection of staff for training not based on the recruitment needs of 
local government hinder staff training and development in the local 
government of Enugu state. Based on these findings, the study 
recommends among others, enhanced regulatory capacity on the part 
of the government for effective enforcement of staff training and 
development policies in local government; increase funding of 
training and development programmes and adopt measures to 
ensure that selection of staff for training and development is based on 
the recruitment needs of local government and periodic evaluation of 
training and development programmes.
