ANALYSIS OF MAINTENANCE CULTURE EMPLOYED IN PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE IN NIGERIA

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Nigeria was not supposed to be where she is now since she is a blessed nation, one that is visibly gifted with the greatest of resources; “human and material” to encourage her to have the best facilities when she considers it necessary and most appropriate. Nigeria, in contrast to the so-called world economies, developed nations, world powers, or whatever term is used to describe the world’s most powerful States, is so rich in natural resources that, if properly managed by the best hands in leadership, she could have easily stimulated herself towards being not just a true African giant (as opposed to what is perceived to be the current self-acclaimed status), but among the world’s most powerful States.Nigeria has had a number of commendable projects over the years that make one happy to be a Nigerian. To name a few, these projects include the Liberty Stadium in Ibadan (now known as the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium), the National Stadium in Lagos, universities, hospitals, schools, and refineries that have made oil the mainstay of the economy, to name a few.

However, having been built and designed to serve the immediate purpose for which they were intended, they were frequently forgotten, abandoned, and, at best, given very little attention, resulting in poor maintenance and management. The million-dollar question is whether these projects were made available in the short or long term as a result of the foregoing.

Nigeria has had several excellent initiatives over the years that are currently in the most awful state ever imaginable, posing serious challenges to the country’s social, economic, and infrastructure growth. This is in relation to the challenge of maintaining public facilities and capital projects that are worthy of proudly identifying oneself as a Nigerian, albeit for a limited time, due to the “extinction” of the beauty that formerly greeted such initiatives.

Nigeria has a first-class infrastructure on the agenda, in line with national development goals for enhancing the quality of public services in order to become “The Developed Countries by the Year 2020.” Aside from it, there are several facilities.

Maintenance culture refers to a person’s or a group’s or society’s values, way of thinking, behavior, perception, and underlying assumptions that believe maintenance to be vital (priority) and practice it in their daily lives. Maintenance culture refers to a person’s or a group’s attitude toward maintaining, preserving, and protecting public facilities. Although maintenance tasks have been programmed, planned, and scheduled in practice, it is only when one understands the responsibility entrusted to implement it that a proper awareness of maintenance work is created, whereby it is done automatically, spontaneously, and without any direction or thought (Suwaibatul et. al, 2012).

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
Maintenance culture development in Nigeria may be achieved by implementing the leadership components that should be done by someone who is called a leader in order to maintain culture maintenance practices among all of his followers. Maintenance duties will not be seen as a burden, but rather as a good practice to be followed for the next stake. This is where a leader’s leadership qualities come into play, such as demonstrating a serious dedication to the work by laying out a work plan that everyone can understand and follow. This study, on the other hand, looks at the maintenance culture that exists in Nigeria’s public infrastructure.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

The following are the study’s objectives:

To investigate the level of maintenance culture in Nigeria’s public infrastructure.

 

To determine the factors that influence the maintenance culture of Nigeria’s public infrastructure.

 

To find out how Nigerians feel about maintenance culture.

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

What is the state of the maintenance culture of Nigeria’s public infrastructure?

What factors influence the maintenance culture of Nigeria’s public infrastructure?

How do Nigerians feel about the maintenance culture?

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The following are some of the study’s implications:

The findings of this study will educate the general population in Nigeria about the importance of proper public infrastructure maintenance.

This study will add to the body of knowledge in the domain of the impact of personality traits on academic achievement in students, thereby forming the empirical literature for future research in the field.

SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This research will look at the maintenance culture in Nigeria’s public infrastructure, as well as the factors that influence it.
LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

Financial constraints– A lack of funds impedes the researcher’s efficiency in locating relevant materials, literature, or information, as well as in the data gathering procedure (internet, questionnaire and interview).

Time constraint– The researcher will be working on this subject while also doing other academic tasks. As a result, the amount of time spent on research will be reduced.
