CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0 BACK GROUND OF THE STUDY

Revenue has played an important role in the development of the local government administration in Nigeria. According to Wikipedia, revenue is the income that a business has from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers1.Nigeria as a sovereign nation operating a federal system of government that is, it consists of the Federal Government, State Government and Local Government councils.Onwo (1992) observed that each level of the three tiers of government derives its powers not from the magnanimity of the central government but from the constitution; each level of government has defined responsibilities2. The evolution of local government in Nigeria has undergone a lot of changes. These are all geared towards making the local government a system that could serve the purposes for which they are created; grass root development. Nigeria was governed through the instrumentality of their traditional political institutions. These institutions were anchored on the people’s habits, thought, prestige and custom which are adapted to meet the new conditions for general development of their areas.
