Local government is seen as a government created at local level established by laws to exercise power within defined areas. This is why state many ways to them. Therefore, resulted in local government of having state administration, judiciary and legislation control. It was a result of these and other control hat this research work impact of state control on the administration of local government was carried out. The research has therefore carried out investigation on the state control over government as our study. In doing this, the use of questionnaire and interview were adopted. Finally state control over local government have been recommended which the researcher believes will go a long way in eradicating problem in local government. The researcher also recommended that a more widespread investigation of his study to be carried out since time factor, financial constraint and a number of other problems could not allow the research to carry out this study on wider seals.
My interest in carryout this research work is to know state control on administration of local government that is inter-governmental relationship between state and local government.
Local government could be seen as political sub-division of a country which was constituted by the act of parliament and has substantial control of local affairs including the power imposed on taxes collection, the exact labour for prescribe purpose the governing body such as entity effected.
In the document of local government hand book reforms 1977 in Nigeria local government exercise through representation council established by control over local government or local affairs as well as the staff and institutional and financial power to initiate and direct the provision of service ensure that initiative and report to local needs and condition are maximized.
The principle widely accepted and followed that local area has the inherent right and conduct its affairs in its own way and consistent with its requirement in thought the interposition of the control authority unless supervision is clearly demand in the interest of the public.
In Nigeria local government system for example there is no equivalent of our exist while there is divisional district officers. In our own case, the former district officer was appointed and posted to local government are event given other opportunity to have a say in who is to chosen as district officer in their area.
Although this practice may be justified considering our level of development and the varying standard of efficiency of our local authorities. The major are on which local government is build are administrative efficiency and political education at grass root level.
The farmer is concerned with the efficiency provision and administration of essential social service to the necessary the creation smaller hits of administration closer to the people. However, local government has essential instrument of state government for performance of basic service which can best be decided upon and administered locally, on essential basic need, concerned. Unit in a defined area in a common organization where function are essential need to those of the central government and in the interest of local resident for the satisfaction of communities. It is a means by which local communities jointly rely on as the basic need for the satisfaction and believe their common goals. Consequently, its efficiency is judge through the development of human and materials resource and provision of local amenities for the welfare of dwellers.
However, local government is a body which helps reduce the congestion at the center in being involve implementing social economic programmes that attempt to reconstruct the infrastructure necessary for an improved way of life. Local government is the bodies created at eh local level and given directive by higher governmental authority which the bodies require to carryout its local government. In Nigeria today, local government authorities properly concerned are clearly distinguish from our other instrument of local government administration be essential element of election or selection by the local constitution.
The relationship in law and infant between the two level of government is the attitude of the central government as manifested in various politics circulars legislative administrative judiciary and as well as in the behaviours of its field staff toward local function.
Moreover the local government personnel department has become more or less the never center for the development of the local government area.
