This paper reviews the activities of direct labour a pproach with particular reference to my place of work. That is, Osun State College of Technology, Esa-Oke. It starts by highlighting the origin of direct labour which had been in light operation since the 1930's to 1960's but which was popularised and given a full legal backing by the Sheu Shagari Administration in the late 1970's/early 1980's when the escalati o~ cost of the contracting system of project execution became a source of worry to them. The need for carrying out direct labour work is analysed,and the merits and demerits which the direct labour practice has over contract system are also fully elucidated. This is followed by the practice of direct labour in my place of work which is Osun State College of Technology , Esa-Oke and the necessary areas of improvement for the direct labour practice are laid down . Conclusion is then made by proierlng some useful sugges tions towards i n1p rove n~nt and better efficiency of the system
