Four research questions were asked while two research instruments_were used for the study. The instruments are; the Principal's Leadership Style Questionnaires (PLSQ) and the Teacher’s Effectiveness Questionnaires (TEQ).f The study population consisted of 55 public senior secondary schools which gave a total of 55 principals. There were 2,600 teachers in these schools. A sample size of 25 principals was obtained while 125 teachers of the 2,600 were equally obtained for the study and this gave a total of 150 respondents. " The data generated using both instruments were answered using mean and percentage statistics. The ' results/findings showed that principals promoted staff development, teachers participation in decision-making and implementation, created clear channels of communication flow and delegated duties to teachers. Teachers performed their duties reasonably well by being prompt in class, attending to lessons, marking of attendance registers for students and took part in co-curricular activities.

Recommendations were included for the sustenance of higher productivity while calling for improvement for effective teaching and meaningful learning in secondary schools.
