Bureaucratic problems encountered as hurdles in the implementation of economic policies are listed below:
• Low levels of efficiency, effectiveness, accountability, transparency and dynamism.
• Culture of secrecy in public service.
• High degree of centralised decision-making.
• Weak instruments of control and accountability.
• Low level of compensation.
• Over-sized organisations and over-staffing.
• Inefficient public employment system; inter-cadre rivalry; lack of favourable conditions for women; lack of linkage between rewards and performance.
• Mounting corrupt practices by public officials caused by the poor remuneration of public officials and their concomitant low self-motivation.
• Weak enforcement of laws and regulations.
• Wastages in public offices caused by unscientific management of human resources and wasteful management of public properties.
• Politicisation of service delivery systems.
• The supremacy of the executive.
