Both politics and administration emanate from the government. This means that both are necessary activities of government. Granted that politics sets the task for administration but will be deemed unscrupulous and intruding when it suffers administration to manipulate its office. Hence this study examines politics and the emerging trends in the Nigerian civil service, particularly the Rivers State Civil Service between 2015 and 2022. The study was guided by three research questions and objectives each. The study adopted the bureaucratic theory and the structural-functional approach as its theoretical frameworks. The study adopted the survey research design, given that the study was both qualitative and quantitative. The population of the study was entire staffers in the Rivers State Civil Service (RSCS) of which five hundred (500) were sampled using the Taro Yamane statistical formula which provided three hundred and ninety-six (396) and an addition of one hundred and four (104). The nature of data collection was both primary and secondary primary data were derived through the use of a questionnaire, it was analyzed and presented using simple percentages and thematic content analysis while secondary data was analyzed using content analysis. The findings of the study proved among other things, that there are emerging patterns in RSCS that are responsible for the debilitating decadence in the service which is greatly influenced by politics. The study further recommended amongst other things that the Rivers State government, through the instrumentality of the law, should institute a critically programmed periodic employment exercise and as a matter of urgency reconstitute the RSCS board which is empowered by law to oversee the affairs of the civil service. The implementation of these will address yearnings and reawaken the increasingly demoralized workforce....
