INTER - GOVERNMENTAL FISCAL RELATIONS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN NIGERIA: ISSUES AND PROSPECTS

Nchuchuwe, F.F (Ph.D) and Adejuwon K.D

Abstract: Inter-governmental fiscal relations and its effect on local government in Nigeria has remained a worrisome issue. It is an issue that deals with the governmental arrangement as well as the finance to sustain the polity. The paper therefore examines the nature of inter-governmental fiscal relations and local government in Nigeria. The focus on inter-governmental relations is necessitated by the fact that revenue allocation is an integral aspect of inter-governmental relations in all federation. It is a conflict generating issue, the management of which is very crucial to the survival and growth of local government in Nigeria. The paper argues that there is need for local government financial autonomy for it to perform effectively, and for it to maintain its status as a third tier of government in Nigeria. It concludes that there is an urgent need to address revenue allocations and tax jurisdictions of the local governments in Nigeria to make it a formidable tool for service delivery at the grass root levels.
