Background of Study

Education is used all over the world as an instrument for the achievement of national interests and objectives. Education is an instrument par excellence for effecting national development (National Policy on Education, 2004).

It was reported in Mu’azu (2008) that teachers’ motivation and morale have continued to be important features of teaching and learning and we cannot ignore the importance of teachers to the success of educational organization.

This was elaborated by Oriahi (2009) when he noted that because of poor motivation due to inadequate remuneration, poor teaching environment as a result of inadequate basic teaching materials, and unmotivated learners in the classroom, among others,

therefore, the teachers have become the obstacles in their profession. As a result of this, teachers no longer teach effectively and the students in turn no longer learn properly.

Yobe state is among the educationally disadvantaged states in Nigeria.

Therefore, the problems of the educational sector in the state are enormous The researcher observed that the state tertiary institutions do not have enough manpower, inadequate remuneration, poor teaching environments,

lack of staff development, inadequate teaching and learning facilities, are among the problems militating against the state tertiary institutions in Yobe state.
