The local government administration
was designed as a result of some broad of national objectives that the
government seeks to achieve. Some of that broad objective as follows: the
desired to involve local citizens in the local management of local
affairs. Secondly to ensure that the
basic needs of the people is meeting speedily and efficiently as possible. The third
reason is to provide a frame work within which local resources, both human and
material are effectively mobilized. Lastly the forth aim is to enable local
participation of the local people in the entire ceremonies at administration.
As an eye opener let us try and define the local government. Local government
may be defined a government established through an act at the local and to
deals with specific matters as its affect them.
Under the 1963, republican
constitution, local government authorities ware created mainly to deals with
matter of local concern, e.g. market federal roads, and motor parks E.t.c. the
essence of local government creation is to involve local participation in the
affairs of their country.
Not only that to bring them in to
realms of politics at the grass root, Most modern state and government embraced
three or two tiers of government, for examples, central, state and local
government as we have in Nigeria. The power of government and administration
are therefore, made relevant at the local level.
Local government are created through documents
called “instrument; they are created like corporate bodies because they had
legal existence, that could sue and be sued.
Local government as government at the
local level exercised through the representative council established to
exercised specific purposed with occupied area. A local government is an
academic course which has been taught in schools, polytechnics, and college of
education, universities and other institution for learning.
This is the government that exist at
the remotest part of state, where people don`t really enjoy all the social
amenities that are found in the urban
setting. Government at the local level exercise through representative
established by law to exercised specific power within defines area. Thus power
should give the council substantial control our local affairs as well as staff
institutional and financial powers to initiate and the provision of service and
to determined and implement project so as to compliment the federal government
and state effort. This is to ensure a total devolution of function to this
council and through the active participation of the people and their
traditional institutional institution.
In Nigeria for example, The bulk of
local government finance is provided Through statutory allocation, becomes the other
sources of fund is not too reliable and contribute a negligible percentage of
the total revenue of local authority.

1.2 STATEMENT OF THE RESEARCH PROBLEMS
The Kafin-Hausa local government is
the case study of this research. Kafin-Hausa local government as other local
government have problem that the denies it to exercise its activities. Most
important problem of local government are mostly publically know. But
Kafin-Hausa local government has some problems.
Thus I observed that there is a problem
of poor staffing lack of good leadership, mismanagement and lack of office equipment’s.
Most of the staff are not
professionals, majority of them have no qualification they were just picked
through political process. That is why the moment they assumed power they
hardly contribute or achieve anything meaningful because of poor leadership.
There is a need to investigate and suggest solutions to solve the identified
1.3. RESEARCH HYPOTHESIS
My working hypotheses are as follows:
It is the problem of local government that affects local authority in
exercising its functions.
There is no relation between problem of local government and exercising its
1.4 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The aims and objectives of this
1- To verify and identify the problems
of local government.

leadership of the l local government
3- To glance in to the goals archived by
the local government in exercising its functions.

The local government as per say its
tier of government which more are closely to the people. Since its needs good
understanding and to know the limitation of its function and the way that the
local government exercises its function and the problems that denied the local
government in performing its duties.
These are the reason interested me to
investigated these problems and contribute the project to the success full way
that way carried out goods relations between people and local authorities.
1.6 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
The problems are recognized to my
work given and to any society or any association. In this project work the
problem must arise, since as a work going to be done.
The problems are many but the most
important are as follows:
financial problem: this particular problem is the most serious which researcher
faces during project work. The finance control, transport, percentage of the
project and binding
problem is time: the researcher spent most of his time in making his report. It
may take the researcher more longer time before completing his research work.
The last and most important in project work is distribution and collection of
Data’s and materials like test books e.t.c. and accounting of observation to do
none availability of journal and others.
Those three major problems may be satisfied becaused the
finance include any motion used money to move or to drive any problems araised
which includes transport and binding of project. Before the binding the
completing of the work is another problem and most serious one distribution
questionnaire according to age status and others. In other hand and in the
literature review which the chapter need verification to the different words of
scholars and other people in high rank of education qualification. The
compliment of these various words is another problem since the researcher may
not get all the words at one time.
