Government in the course of providing for the citizenry renders various services to the public and interact with many departments and agencies for coordination and management.

The demand for services from the government by the public can be so huge and the workload so enormous. Public servants (government workers) on the other hand see themselves rather as voluntary service providers than paid workers.

The workload from the high demand for public services and the ineptitude dispositions of the public servants create a serious bottleneck government and the citizenry. Hence, government services are usually considered ineffective fraught with irregularities, a notion that creates room for gross misconducts and malpractices come corruption.

  2. Government to Government;
  3. Government to Citizens;
