This study investigated the public awareness and perception towards the Implementation of Public Archives Act for the Management of Public Service Records in Kebbi State. Qualitative Research Methodology was used. The Population of this study comprised of 62 out of which 13 were purposely sampled. A total of seven (3) research questions were used in the study. The data collected were analyzed using thematic qualitative data analysis technique. The findings reveal that the criteria used by the institutions/ministries in Kebbi State in appraising and retaining records are the informational value of the records. On the description and arrangement of records however, the practice differed from one ministry to another. While some ministries did it alphabetically, some serially others described their records by subject and arranged them alphabetically. Similarly, registry staffs of the institutions/ministries in Kebbi State were not aware of the NAA of 2004 and its provisions as records management legislation. They were aware and implement the provisions of the civil service rules as the guiding principle in managing records of their ministries. Thus, it is recommended among others that: registry staff should be train and educated to become aware of the NAA of 2004 and its provision on the management of public service records as clearly stated in the decree, registry units of the state institutions/ministries should be empower to be autonomous as independent department not a unit within the department, the state government should make a provision to introduce Electronic Registry Database (ERD) which could facilitate and enhance the activities of the department.
