Recruitment in the public sector in contemporary African societies was conducted mostly through traditional and manual sourcing of teeming number of suitably qualified applicants which many stakeholders believed is full of inconsistencies and neglect of universally clamoured good governance practice. To be in line with global realities different countries in Africa including Nigeria started to embraced the use of electronic tools to obtain the maximum number of personnel they require to fill existing job vacancies. Most public sector organisations relied heavily on private recruiting firm for sourcing applicants online who charged high fees causing a lot of hardships on both applicants and the organisation. This study critically assesses the extent of applicability of good governance practices in the process of recruiting personnel through electronic means.Qualitative method was employed through face to face interview with applicants and stakeholders. The data was collected and analysed.The result revealed that the conduct of e-recruitment in public sector is yet to address the problems bedevilling recruitment and hiring process.Therefore it is recommended that political patronage and lukewarm attitude of policy makers towards justice and fairness should be address squarely by the government and its agencies.
