The data presentation tools were tables, simple bar charts, histogram, pie-chart and percentages. It was found out that poor funding, lack of maintenance culture, use of obsolete equipments, lack of spare parts and inadequate trained manpower constitutes the problems of the organization and no serious adequate plans have been put in place to address these problems. Based on the aforementioned, it was therefore recommended that PHCN’s equipments should be upgraded, government should adequately fund the organization, management should develop a vibrant maintenance culture and employ adequate and well trained staff.
