Abstract:
It is a well-known fact that the sphere or area of governance by the various countries of the world have increased greatly after the treaty of Westphalia of 1648. The eve and eventual birth of the twenty-first century however came with agitation for and emphasis on abundant provision of things that make life worth living otherwise called social services for the people. The need to reach people irrespective of their location therefore necessitated the creation and recreation of local government. Indeed, local government systems vary from country to country. This work therefore delves into the Nigerian and Brazilian local government systems, taking a concise look at the reforms that brought about an important milestones in the historical epoch of local governments in the two countries with a glimpse at their functions and finances. The systems were also juxtaposed, historical method provided a guide for the work and utilitarian theory illuminates the study which concludes that Brazilian local government is more efficient because it is more independent.
