Recall that in our last class we talked about what a local government is, the problems and solutions  of local government. 

Today, we will focus on state government and this will help us know why a state government is different from a local government.

A local government is a body of people who controls public affairs of a nation at the local level. 

For instance, we cannot all go to the president’s office to make complaints about our environment or any changes we want in the community. However, having a local government allows us to have a sense of belonging. 

A state government is the body of people who control the public affairs of many local government areas. 

In Lagos State, there are twenty local government areas, according to the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Some of the local governments are Ikeja, Mainland, Ojo, Epe, Ikorodu, Lagos Island, Agege, and Badagry.

Composition Of State Government

The government of a state is headed by a governor. The governor is assisted by a deputy governor. There are also commissioners who head different ministries. Each state has her capital. The capital of Lagos State, for example, is Ikeja. The capital of Ondo State is Akure, and the capital of Delta State is Asaba. There are thirty-six states in Nigeria.

In summary, a state is bigger than a local government because it is made up of many local government areas.
