1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The need for welfare scheme as a motivation tool on workers in public services cannot be over emphasized. Public as well as private enterprise tends to increase productivity in their work place and welfare scheme and packages have great influence as it can be used as one of the measure to motivate workers in public services.
Government provides services or facilities to their workers not only on humanitarian bases but also because of pecuniary gain derivable from such services or facilities. However it is good for government to be genuinely interested in the welfare of his workers anxiety, worries, family and financial crisis suffered by workers do adversely affect their performance. It is therefore in government interest to assist in removing or reducing these problems and making the workers comfortable while at work. Welfare scheme to be provided by government must as much as possible reflect his good intension towards his workers rather than workers perceiving such services as a right or entitlement.

- STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS
In early days of cooperation activities, government sees no need for welfare scheme. They do not tend to motivate their workers as there was no measurement on workers performance and motivation was far from serving as a means of increasing productivity. Hence workers were responsible for the provision of all welfare they needed at this stage workers were not well remunerated and their welfare was not at the organization diary. Government went home with all the profits pretending to offer essential services while the workers bears agony alone incase of loose and work condition at the work place.
The emerges of theories ushers in series of common research which developed schools of thought thereby giving management and trade union sense of becoming on the effect of welfare scheme on motivation of workers performance, but the case remains the provision and its implementation by the government and its administrators, partly because on places where they are introduced, there are problems associated with its impact on the motivation of workers while in many other places they were ignored or worst still does not exist because they are not seen as a measure to increase productivity.
Problems associated with the impact of welfare scheme on the motivation of workers have led to the failure of its administration or implementation.
1.3 RESEARCH QUESTIONS
The following are the research questions
i To what extent does welfare scheme motivates the workers of NTA Enugu?
ii What are the welfare schemes employed by the workers of NTA Enugu?

1.5 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The administrators government agencies machineries and academic have not helped on laying solid foundation for the formulation of adequate measures in implementation of welfare scheme as its measure tends not to motivate workers.
However, these studies have failed to established or addressed the problems associated with the provision as well as implementing welfare scheme towards motivation, all these tends to have created problems of choice in administration of different strategies in achieving the desired goals. This study is therefore set to use empirical data on Nigeria to model as well as predict possible measures for easy implementation. This study will be significant in this ways.
The findings will be of use in extending the body of existing knowledge. This would be of great benefit to different individuals, groups, policy makers, researchers, government and its agencies.
