CRISIS MANAGEMENT IN THE NIGERIAN LOCAL GOVERNMENT SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF NKANU WEST LOCAL GOVERNMENT)

ABSTRACT
This research work is primarily aimed at examining the problems of crisis management in the Nigeria Local Government Administration Council, Nkanu West Local Government Area was used as a case study.
The need for this research work arouse from the fact that, without properly managing the crisis that usually occur in the local Government Administration Area (which aimed at bringing government to social amenities) may not be achieved even partly.
To achieve the above objectives, data was collected through the use of questionnaires. From the analysis of data collected, it was discovered among other things that lack of adequate manpower training to understand the dynamics of crisis contributes to poor management of crisis in Local Government Administration in Nigeria.
We therefore, recommend among other things that qualified staff be trained and developed through the organization of regular workshops and seminars, should be always available in Local Government Administration.  This will help them to be up to date in a modern crisis management.
