Background of the Study
Motivation plays an important role in the organization because it increase the productivity of employees and the goals can be achieved in an efficient way. The behaviour of employees can change through motivation in any organization. From situation to situation, the level of motivation differs with in an individual (Robbins, Judge and Soghi, 2005). Motivation also takes part in an important role for teachers because it helps to achieve the target in an efficient way. Teacher motivation is very important because it improves the skills and knowledge of teachers because it directly influences the students’ achievement (Mustafa and Othman, 2010). If in schools, the teachers do not have sufficient motivation then they are less competent which directly influence the students and education system.
Education is an instrument per excellence for affecting national development. It fasters the worth and development of the individual for the individual sake and for the general development of the society (National Policy on Education, 2014). All these call for functional education for the promotion of progressive and united country.
In Nigeria, for example in order to adverse the goals and objectives of education, the government set up three level of education, primary education, secondary education and tertiary education (National Policy on Education, 2012) for the purpose of this research the discussion is limited to secondary education.
School programmes need to be relevant practical and comprehensive, while interest and ability should determine the individual direction in education. It is only when these two factors come together that can achieve the national objectives.

The issue of teachers’ motivation has become a matter of debate and concern in educational system and standards. In most developing countries of the world including Nigeria, there has been a growing awareness about teacher motivation which is a key to quality assurance, quality outcomes/delivery and high standards in the educational system. It is acknowledged that any nation that is aspiring to maintain high and quality standards or achieve quality assurance in its educational system must take teachers and their motivational needs with utmost high level of seriousness.
Teachers are important instrument in education. They are also the pivot on which the educational process hang. Teachers play a major role in the whims and caprices of the educational system. They can influence the teaching-learning outcomes either positively or negatively because they determine the quality of instructional delivery and also influence quality education when it comes to implementation of the curriculum and education policies. They are to be considered when addressing issues such as: quality assurance; quality delivery (teaching), quality context and quality learning outcomes (onucha, 2002).

The absent of motivation has a negative effect in the standard of education in the country as the student are being deprived of the needed knowledge. Hence, the problem associated with this negative attitude towards motivation result to this.
Teachers do not give their best, due to payment or salary by the authority to the teachers’ students’ inadequate knowledge as a result of not being taught adequately since the teachers are not motivated to give in their best.
