The main objective of this paper is to examine the impact of public bureaucracy on service delivery in Nigeria using the Neo-Weberian model. With a reliance on secondary data, the paper observed that the delivery of goods and services by the government rests on the public bureaucracy and institutions of allied mandates as pivot. The Neo-Weberian model proved useful in highlighting the deficits in public service delivery in Nigeria.
