INTRODUCTION 
Local government is the government of the grass root level, every government whether federal, state or local government place a lot of emphasis of goods to achieve it there fore become imperative that local government msut device standard guidelines to answer that it will perform the duties for which they were created to achieve.
The issue of corruption on local government in Nigeria has been a  problem that had engaged the attention of many scholars and public commentators in recent times.  Corruption is not restricted to Enugu North local government alone as it is equally the same in other local government councils in Nigeria what I am therefore contending in their work is that apart from performance and accountability models acclaimed by Enugu North local government council,  the problem of corruption is still the order of day in the local government.
Enugu North local government like every other local government is the third tiers of government which services as a vetride that transport the local people to the national government.  Nigeria local governments of which Enugu North is once ot hem have undergone several reforms which empowers it as the third tiers of government. Some at thses reforms include 1976, 1977 and 1980 reforms Ugwuonwu (1999:301) Enugu North  have eb found with the problem of corruption such as lack of accountability dishonesty, fraudulent activities etc which have in one way or the other contributed to the poor development of the local government.
