For a number of years investigators have studied forces and processes that enhance learning and performance. One area of investigation that has received a good portion of attention and research effort has been motivation. Many different disciplines have contributed knowledge related to motivational processes and conditions. It is not the purpose of this study to examine all of these considerations, but rather to focus on one that has been relatively neglected until recent years. Nigeria is one of the largest and is densely populated country in Africa. Nigeria gained independence in the year 1960. The independence brought about a number of changes in the country, such as the changes in the structure of leadership, operation, and role of the government. This research study aims to explore and investigate the strategies that are adopted for motivating the employees in the oil and gas sector, Nigeria. This research study specifically focuses on NNPC in order to assess the levels of employee motivation. The motivation is conceived, often as an impulse in the body, as an attraction that emanates from the object and acts on the individual. The psychologist regarded as the dynamic aspect of a subject's relationship with the world. The motivation concerns the active direction of behavior toward certain preferential categories of situations or objects. The results of this dissertation have shown that the management of NNPC is doing a good job in keeping their employees motivated. The responses of the employees to different questions had shown that they feel highly motivated in performing their duties.
