INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study
The government comes and goes but the traditional institution has remained an integral framework of our history and the bedrock of our nation‟s democracy.

No government or educational body can work harmoniously without the assistance of the traditional institutions because these institutions have remained the pulse of the people and an enduring part of our cultural heritage, No society progresses without defined cultural norms and values which regulate the activities of its people.

Politically, looking at the history of Africa shows that countries without defined structures for the traditional institution do not last and are much prone to wars and civil strife (Aigbegbele, 2014).
