CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
    The role of the secretary in any organization has often times generated a lot of debate among contemporary staff. Before the secretary had been regarded as a disposable employee who should be hired and fired at will of employers. This was in accordance with the case of Nernelt Hoarses and company US south London  away (19-877) when Lord Esher (stated that “the secretary is a mere servant, his position is to do what he is told and no person can assume that he has authority to represent anything at all”
    Nowadays, the postion of a secretary has improved from what it was in the past. According to Panorama Development LTD Vs Fidelis furnishing fabric ltd (1971) where lord Denning stated that “but time has changed. A secretary is a much more important person nowadays than she was  in 1877. she is an administrative officer of the company. As regards matters concerning administration in my judgment. The secretary has ostensible authority to sign contract on behalf of the company. Furthermore, if a company is hiring cars to meet its foreign customers at the airport, it is more natural that the company would hire these cars through its secretary”
    The place of the secretary in an administrative office according to Agnew and Mechan (1974) in business, industry government scientific research educational institutions, radio and television, as well as in a host of other fields, the person who ensures the efficient and smooth functioning of office is the secretary” from this one can understand that the presence of the secretary in the office is always remarkably felt right from the time she arrives in the office in the morning until the end of the day’s work.
    While appraising the tasking and dynamic position of the secretary in the office, Magnini (1982) remarked that the secretarial work is a career indeed “according to her for the smooth and efficient running of office, a highly skilled secretary possessing organizational skills is an asset because she is the one who has a general knowledge of all phases of the office and the business procedures.
    The role of the secretary in the office has been described as that of a public and human relations experts. The secretary with the capacity of the office portrays as a positive image of the employer to the public and generates good human relations in working with her daily business associates for instance those above her level, her subordinates and applies the best principles of human relations at each level. She also does the work of a receptionist where there is none, thereby assuming the role of and office rest.
    A good secretary is an officer whose work is interview with the work of every other person in the organization. She is the link to onside and outside the working of the organization. The smooth and efficient working of the organization depends upon her ability as she has more to do with practical running of the organization than any other office.
