Abstract


The research work examined privatization and Nigeria economy, a case study of Power Holding Company of Nigeria 2011-2015.  The theoretical framework adopted is structure functionalism.  The research observed that the major cause of privatization was due to inefficiency by different structures and lack of performance in carrying out their functions.  It also adopted the secondary data which is qualitative.  It is recommended that government and private enterprises should work together in restoring high level of ethical standard in order to set laws and rules which will guide the workers in different power sectors to reduce the rate of embezzlement in Nigeria and encourage the establishment of the agency that should regulate the activities in the power sector.
