INTRODUCTION

There is universal acceptance of local government as a vital instrument for rural developments, irrespective of the ideological differences of societies and levels of development.

According, Alhaji Abubakar rim put it aptly that local government is the importance government of our land, it is the nearest and most immediate government for man in my village does not know who the president is, he does not even care who the governor is, he cares only about those who are councilors and chairman of his local government (Constituent Assembly 1998:994).

One of the major reason for establishing local government is to bring government to the local communities so that the local people can participate fully in the process of governance, in order to provide essential local services and thus spend up the pace of social economic and political development (Ogunna, 1996) following this fundamental purpose of local government. The guidelines on the 1976 local government reforms makes community participation imperative on local government.
