CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    Background of the Study
Local government system is one of the most revolutionary administrative reforms in the political programme of the federal government of Nigeria. It is the administration under local committees to maintain law and order based on a range of social amenities and to encourage cooperation and participation of people at the grass root to improve their living condition. This concept with its objectives is aimed at standardizing and stabilizing the functions, human and financial resources of the local government level to encourage initiative and leadership potentials. The current trend of ineffectiveness of the local authorities is dual in nature, managerial and financial deficiencies. (Ugwu 1982:34) puts it this way “In all federations, finance is the most critical policy issue in intergovernmental relation”. The encroachment of local finance and the level of interference by the other higher government as it relates to revenue sharing has continually remained issues in the front burner of the nation’s polity by the state government. This has negatively affected the performance of local government in terms of its constitutional responsibilities. The setting up of state and local government joint account committee, local government service commission, ministry of local government and chieftaincy affairs and other allied agencies at the state level have made local government autonomy unattainable in Nigeria. In view of all this facts, it is pertinent to note that the success of an/any organization depends on the ability and expertise of those who operate it both at the managerial and lower levels of operation, such abilities and expertise usually stems from the knowledge that possess and training received.
