Since the dawn of Nigeria to democratic dispensation on the 29th May, 1999, the achievements and impact of the third tier of government – the local government have left much to be desired.

Little had Barr Mutfwang appointed Hon Anani that he would go on to justify Late Chinua Achebe who almost forty years ago, had correctly disagreed with analysts’ diagnosis of the problems of stagnation at the local governments. Achebe said “the trouble with Nigeria is simply and squarely a failure of leadership. There is nothing wrong with the Nigerian land or climate or water or air or anything else. The Nigerian problem is the unwillingness or inability of its leaders to rise to the responsibility, to the challenges of personal example which are the hallmarks of true leadership”.
