The productivity of Public Corporations is poor and inefficient. This is due to a number of factors among which are:

(i) Political Interference: The executive or legislative arm of government may interfere in the day-to-day management of Public Corporations.

(ii) Poor Management Of Resources: The Management personnel may not be efficient. It may be ineffective in the management and utilization of the available resources to achieve the goals of the Corporation.

(iii) Inadequate Funding is Another Problem: Most Public Corporations are poorly funded, which hinders their ability to deliver efficient services to the public.

(iv) Corruption: Funds allotted to enterprises are either embezzled by the staff of the corporation or political officeholders. Most Public Corporations are in poor states due to corruption and embezzlement of funds.

(v) Ethnicity and Favouritism play a major role, especially in the appointment of board members, and top management even in staff appointments generally, this affects the quality of staff appointed to serve the corporation.

(vi) Wastages: Most Public Corporations are accused of wastage and carelessness.

(vi) Vandalization and Stealing of Properties and Equipment by workers and thieves is another major problem. A lot of money is spent on replacing and mending stolen ones.

(vii) Poorly Trained Personnel: The staff members of these corporations are not exposed to regular training for effective discharge of their duties. This has affected the quality of service they render.

(viii) Poor Accountability: Many of them are not transparent, open, and accountable due to the vested interest of a few in the government or the corporation.

(x) Monopoly enjoyed by these Public Corporations has rendered them inefficient, and unproductive as they are shielded from the competition which brings out the best.

(xi) Delay in Policy Making And Execution: This may come up because those involved in policymaking and execution are many.
