This paper examines the Effects of Conflict Management in Public Sectors in Nigeria: A Case Study of chosen Organizations in Edo State. It evaluates the effectiveness of Conflicts Management in the chosen Organizations and the process adopted. Since the early 1990s, the issue of Good Effective Governance and effective management has become an important concept in the International Development debates and Policy discourse. Over the last decade however, the gradual accumulation of indicators and research based on them has provided broad support for the arguments that good governance is necessary to achieve sustainable growth and development, particularly in Developing Countries like Nigeria nation. In the course of this study, the Effects of Managing Conflicts in Public Sectors in Nigeria, A Case Study of chosen Organizations in Edo State were brought to the fore while the objectives of the study are well spelt out.  Hypotheses were postulated and the Group Theory was used to explicate the works.  Data were obtained from both primary and secondary sources. From the primary sources, the survey method, that is, the use of questionnaire designed and adopted. Data obtained from this method were analyzed with the aid of Simple Percentage.  Thereafter, the five researchable hypotheses were tested and accepted while the null hypotheses were rejected.  The implication is that there was relationship between the dependent and independent variables.  Generally, the paper brought to focus that the Effects of Managing Conflicts in Public Sectors in Nigeria is a collective effort in reaching a compromise in the management of Conflicts in Organizations in Nigeria and it has contributed immensely to the growth and development of public enterprise elsewhere.  Finally, it suggests policy prescription and recommendation which are aimed at repositioning Managing Conflicts not only in Edo State in particular, but also in Nigeria in general.
