CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of Study

Local government in Nigeria came into existence as a result of indirect rule system, introduced by Colonial master during the colonial era. Since that period local government system has undergone series of reforms processes such as national conferences, workshops and seminar on different parts of the country as regards to local government administration. The purpose of these seminars and conferences was to ensure an effective and dynamic system of local government in Nigeria.

          Inspite of series of seminars and conferences on local government in Nigeria, yet there were recurring inefficiency and mismanagement of resources especially on revenue generation and utilization in Nigeria local government areas. As a result of this, we were motivated by the desire to find out the reason why financial inefficiency is still rampant in local government despite the series of measures applied to ensure effective administration in local government system.

          Although, the introduction of 1976 local government reform in Nigeria specified the duties of local government, which contributed in, no small measure towards making people feel the presence of strong and vibrant government. Local government as the third tier of government is a process through which social economic activities are carried out in different localities, thereby making it possible for even development. Local government help to provide government at the grassroots level.

          The involvement of the local government through out the country is a way of making government meaningful to them thereby making government an instrument for development. But unfortunately, the local government has not been able to achieve most of these obligations as a result of inadequate financial resources, which has been a major problem leading to ineffective administration in some part of local government in Nigeria.

            With the introduction of 1976 reform, there was an improvement in local government as a result of grant which they receive from federal and state government but there dependent on the grant as most of their revenue affect the effectiveness of their service. Local government also receive revenue through internal source such as license fees, tax and rate but some times those revenue are not effectively collected and utilized as a result of embezzlement of the fund by staff members of the L.G.A., who are responsible for collecting the revenue and also by those that manage the revenue.

          Despite the arrangement made for local government reform in 1976, the issue of revenue generation and utilization continues to be serious problem.In such situation, we decided to conduct a research into revenue generation and utilization of local government system in Nigeria using Udi Local Government of Enugu State as a case study.        

          We hope that the solution suggested to the problem will ensure effect and efficiency realization of our aim and objective for futures development in Nigeria.

Statement of the Problem           The researchers focused on the prevalent problems that led to the problem of revenue and utilization in Nigeria local government. This problem militates against efficiency generation and effective utilization of local government revenue in Udi Local Government.           This problems were: -

1.       Limited revenue resources or inadequate sources of           revenue. 

2.       Ineffective management of revenue raised.

3.       Poor revenue generation.

4.       Inability of local government to discharging the duties assign       to them by federal government.

5.       Poor attitude of the citizen in discharging their responsibilities like payment of tax.

Purpose of the Study

          Local government as a third tier of government has many financial obligation and responsibilities to perform and our intention for this study is to ensure that this obligations are discharge effectively. This work sought to;

1.       To determine how revenue is being generated in the local          government.

2.       To examine both the internal and external source of revenue       of local government system in Udi Enugu State.

3.       To investigate the problem of revenue and utilization in       Nigeria local government in order to find out how the    government official manages the fund.

4.       To identify the causes of the problem.

5.       To suggest a possible solution to the problem of revenue          generation and ultilization.

          For every purpose to be actualize, there must be       management by objective.

          According to Ikechuku (1995) management by objective is a system where an organization jointly identify it common goals, define each individual work and use this measure as a guide line for operating the unit and asses contribution of each of it members.The application of this theory within the context of this research ensures that we (as input) work hand in hand as unit in order to produce effective and efficient result (output or objective).

          Ejiofor (1987) also saw management by objective as a techniques whereby an organization agree on a broad goals translate these goals into a chain of specific short terms goals and define each individual major area of accomplishment. The application of this theory in this context ensure that each individual becomes optimum committed, achievement motivated and outcome oriented.

          Likewise in every local government system, there must be a demand and support from citizen (as input) into the local government, who in turn convert this support as (output). There are times when the demand out weighs the output from local government as a result of lack of support from the citizen.

          This support from the citizen can be, being obedient to the law, payment of tax and rate and having understanding and sense of belonging. This will help to minimize the demand on local government. Therefore, effective organization and management of local government can be achieved by mutual co-operation of the local government as a system. as a system, the structure is made up of political unit, administrative unit and the entire models. When these structures works hand in hand as an input, they will produce an effective and efficient result (output).

  Significance of the Study 

          Right from the colonial period, people have been complaining about the poor developmental state of local government in discharging their duties. We hope that this research work will definitely enlighten the staff and management of local government. It will brings about more noticeable contribution and improvement in local government administration. This study will serve as means to tackle most of the problem of revenue generation and utilization and the result of the finding will be of benefit to all local government in different country in Nigeria and also to the student that conduct similar research work on the same topic.

Research Questions

1.       What are the internal and external sources of local    government revenue?

2.       To what extent are the local government revenue being           exploited?

3.       What are problems responsible for inefficient and           mismanagement of revenue in Udi Local Government?

4.       What are the causes of the problem?

5.       How can we minimize the identified problems in revenue           management?

Scope of the Study

          The study was carried in Udi Local Government of Enugu State. The study covers all sections involved in revenue government and disbursement in the local government.

Limitations of the Study

          This research would have been broaden but there are some factors that constrained the research for further expansion of the study. These factors are as follows; -

Time: The limitation placed on the researchers in this regards cannot really be over emphasized. The period of time for collecting data, completion of the study, submission of the project was not enough to carryout more extensive research for study.

Finance: The researchers was stressed by huge financial involvement such as cost of materials, traveling expenses, sour secondly, revenue utilization can be useful in policy formulation on regarding the funding of local government in view of their increased statutory functions.

          Thirdly, utilization of revenue is useful in the controlling the expenditure of the local government in view of their internal and external source of revenue through the aid of budget (revenue budget).
