THE CONSTITUTION HAS THROWN A SPANNER IN THE WORKS



The federal government has no business creating local government for States and by doing so engendered suspicion in the relationship of the States and local governments.



Looking at the provisions of our constitution, can we say we delegated administration or devolution of powers or
a balanced mix of any?





What is happening in practice is less than a delegation of duties but over subordination of LGs.



The constitution in these regards failed to achieve a balance between devolution and de-concentration that supports effective service delivery in local areas or cooperative federalism it may have set out to achieve.

There is a big challenge in transfer and management of local government funds.
Collaboration in management of projects has not been a win-win situation for elected council members who have
no stories to tell for being in offices.
