INTRODUCTION

In recent years, there has been a great advancement in science and technology. This advancement is growing rapidly and its impact is felt in all parts of the world and in all walks of life.  Every day brings about the birth of a new organization.  The incessant growth of business organizations has created a massive development in office technology. This development brought about the introduction of various types of machines and system, which has so many resource skills like the keyboarding skills, opening and saving of information skill, etc.

The impact of computers in organizations and societies has been phenomenal (McGraw & Hanson 1978). According to Barker and Yestes, a computer is essentially a device for performing automated information (or data) processing tasks. According to Eleoba (1995), he defined a computer is an electronic device capable of solving complex problems at a fantastic or electronic speed. Computer helps to simplify complex tasks, speed up routine work, information storage, retrieval, and efficiency in general.

This is where the skilled secretary is concerned since office procedure and computers in the offices affect practices as they integrate many of tasks of the old machines into some system. According to Leen (1984) computer is in the form of a word processing personal computer mention but a few does not displace the secretaries efficiency but has come to enhance her performance on the job by simplifying complex jobs.  And these jobs can be performed more effectively only when the secretary has the required skills involved or required in the operation of a computer.
