The study examines the effect of training and development on the performance of civil service employees in Nigeria, using Ministry of Information, Asaba, as a focal point. Two research hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The study adopts the survey research design involving the administration of questionnaires to a sampled population. The result of the findings reveals amongst others that training and development programme have significant effect on employee‟s performance, and that there is a link between poor training and development programmes and organizational employee‟s turnover in the Delta State Ministry of Information, Asaba. Against this backdrop, some useful recommendations were made. These includes: training and manpower development relevant to organizational goals should be provided to employees and recipients provided with an enabling environment to perform tasks they have learnt, there is the need to conduct training needs assessment, to ensure that the right training is given and training programmes of the civil service employees should be on a continuous basis and not based on survival, that is, conducting training only when organization is confronted with particular problems.
