The importance of effective governmental institutions for national development has also been well established by scholars. Elsewhere, efforts in the study of performance issues of governmental institutions have explored the link between public sector organizational performance and the implementation of standard managerial tools and methods (Ritz, 2009). The existing literature shows that whereas many scholars are focused on the importance of governmental institutions and their fragility in the national environment, some others are looking at the solution mode of how to bring about functioning institutions in the governance space. However, there is a paucity of focus within the existing literature on what actually are the measures of good performance of governmental institution; and what specific characteristics should be aspired to or what factors should be brought into being in order to establish best practice governmental institutions in a society, such as Nigeria. In this study, we dwelt with these questions of measures of performance and conditions for good performance of governmental institutions and were able to establish the measures of best practices in the functioning of governmental institutions. We were also able to identify the enabling conditions for effective performance of governmental institutions.<o:p></o:p></span></i></p>
