Abstract :

In  Obasanjo’s  National  Broadcast  on  June  18
th
  2003  and  his  address  at  the
inauguration  of  the  National  Assembly  on  June  5,  2003,  he  drew  attention  to  several
aspects of our national life which must be addressed in order to move the nation forward.
One  area  of  immediate  attention  is  the  structure  of  government  at  the  third  tier  of
government,  which  requires  urgent  review  to  incorporate  an  efficient  and  participatory
framework   that   should   maximize   the   utilization   of   scarce   resources   available   to
Governments. According him, the need for review of the present structure of governance
at local  government level was  informed by three disturbing trends, among others, which
had been identified with the recent inception of democratic dispensation in the country:

The non-performance or gross under-performance of the Local Governments;

The  high  cost  of  governments  and  near  prohibitive  costs  of  electioneering
campaigns to individual political contestants in Nigeria; and  

Fragmentisation  and  continual  fragmentisation  of  Local  Government  Councils
including  impractical  division  of  towns  and  cities  into  unworkable  mini-Local
Governments (Obasanjo, 2003).
