1.0            INTRODUCTION

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.


The area of the study is Kafin-Hausa local government. Kafin-Hausa local government is within the territorial jurisdiction of Jigawa state and located at south eastern part of the state. The Local government boarded with Bauchi state respectively.

The local government has approximately total area of 1,380 kilo meters. The local government is bless with fertile land and the area recorded an average rainfall at 12,48mm annually. From the 2006 census Kafin-Hausa local government have a total population of 271,058, with male population stand act 138,119 while the female population 132,939, and the total number of village is 65, and eleven (11) political words, in the local government with 8 distracts. The type of language spoken in the area which includes Hausa, Fulani, are predominant tribes groups in the local government authority, these are also the Kanuri speaking people through in small number. Isla is the religion of indigenous population with every one being a Muslim. The local government are traditional filled by village heads, and word heads the major occupational of the people of Kafin-Hausa local government include, mix-farming, fishing and cattle rearing, since the local government has abundant grass land and  availability of drinking water over a million cattle road. Auyo, Hadejia and Kafin-Hausa dams promote fishing reflex ties in the area.

Kafin-Hausa local government is blessed with natural and mineral resources. The main trees found in the area (Dorawa). Fish are abundantly is existence white quart and black clay which is vital material in making pats are the main cash crops in the area are groundnut, beans, and beans seeds, while foods crops such as millet, maize, guinea corns, rice, and beans are abundant.

Area of tourism are located in Kafin-Hausa local governments, Jahun, Auyo Sarawa, and Ruba, also Kafin-Hausa local government is not left behind in the field of education.

The local government has a total of 173 primary schools, with annual environment of 10,376, pupils, there are also a nomadic primary school build and located at Afarake. The school was the first types build in Kafin Hausa local government with annual environment of 143 pupils. There are three (3) senior secondary school located in kafin hausa such as science secondary school, government day senior secondary school, and Imam Hassan Arabic secondary school Kafin-Hausa. There is also a university Sule Lamido University (S.L.U) located at Kafin-Hausa.


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 problems.


My working hypotheses are as follows:

H0. It is the problem of local government that affects local authority in exercising its functions.

Hi. There is no relation between problem of local government and exercising its functions.


The aims and objectives of this study:

1-    To verify and identify the problems of local government.

2-    To review the function of the 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.


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:

-         The 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

-         Another 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.
