The population of   the study consisted of  6402 public  secondary  school teachers, and 258 principals within the six education zones in the state. Sample  size  of  1056  teacher  respondents  were  used ; adopting multistage random sampling  techniques for  the  selection. Gender as moderator variable was also adopted for the study. Questionnaire instruments of 65 Items, titled” Teacher Questionnaire” (T Q); was used for the study as   adopted and validated by educational experts.  Trial  testing of  the  instruments  was determined in Enugu  State; to  obtain  the reliability indices  of  0.746 and  0.766, which  were  reliable, based on  Frankell and Wallen (2016),approval  reliability  index of  0.700.  Cronbach Alpha procedure was used to measure the internal consistency of the instruments. Data were collected by the researcher within the three selected sample zones. As the study operates at interval level of measurement, Pearson Products Moment Correlation Coefficient was used, to answer the research questions. The hypotheses were tested at 0.05 levels of significance. Results  from  the findings among others revealed; a significant  low  positive  relationships, between  the  teachers’ perceptions scores of the principals’ management strategies and their job performance, in the application of  motivational  strategy, as  ascertained by both  teacher  gender respondents.
