ABSTRACT

This project work examined corruption in local government administration in Nigeria. Corruption is a practical problem involving the outright theft, embezzlement of funds or other appropriation of the state property, nepotism and granting of favor to personal acquaintances. It has been argued that corruption involves behaviors which deviate from the moral and constitutional requirement.

Literatures on corruption and administration of local government were discussed. Survey design was employed with the use of a well-structured questionnaire. Respondents were selected based on simple random sampling technique were a sample of Ninety (90) respondents was drawn for the purpose of gathering data. Seventy (70) out of the Two Hundred Fifty (250) were selected from staff of Ado Odo – Atan Local Government Council and Twenty (20) from residence of Ado Odo – Atan Local Government Area.

Two hypotheses were formulated and tested with the use of Regression analysis. The analysis resulted to rejecting all null hypotheses and hence accepting the two alternate hypotheses.

Based on decisions of the tested hypotheses conclusions were reached that Corruption in the local government administration is the brain behind poor performance of local government administration development wise, also inadequate revenue affects the council administration, and the administrative lapses of the local government encourage corruption. Recommendations were proffered to Ado Odo – Atan Local Government, State Government and Federal Government.
