CHAPTER ONE

1.0            INTRODUCTION

A local government is the third tier of government in Nigeria.  Like any level of government, it has administrative structure, statutory assigned functions, social commitment and financial arrangement necessary for it to maintain itself and perform its statutory function to its citizens.

Local Government Authority in Nigeria was legally recognized for the first time, as the third tier of level of government by the 1979.  Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; section 7 (1) and decree N0. 12, the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1989 that spells its functions.  Since 1979, there has been a tremendous growth in local government expenditure in line with greater emphasis on grassroots participation.  For instance, in 1992 while complete political, administrative and financial autonomy was granted to the local government from state control, its responsibility was enlarged.  In addition to the functions assigned to it by the constitution the local government is now (with effect from 1992) directly responsible for primary and adult education, primary health care and rural water supply.  Faced with these increased responsibilities and the enormous expenditure associated with them, it is pertinent that the local government expands its sources of revenue beyond the present level.

An action in this direction is necessary, as it would enable the local government to discharge its current functions and bring socio-economic development to the local populace.

Before now, the local government relied heavily on grants from the state and federal government relied heavily on grants from the federation account 20% in addition to a percentage of the internally generated funds of the state.

Before now the amount granted by the local government was very small.  In the face of the complete independence now enjoyed by the local government.  It is statutory required that it relies more on funds generated internally for the performance of its functions.

This being the case, government grants and statutory allocations are only supplementary sources of revenue to the local governments.  For the local government to be self-sustaining financially, without reducing the level and quality of its services to the people, it is important that it reaches out for potential internal revenue sources which would supplement existing ones.
