1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Before the coming of Whiteman in Nigeria the history proved beyond reasonable doubt that there was a strong organized government without any written constitution. The kind of people that were living in these areas and their system of government, this will enable us to either accept or disprove the erroneous write ups of some authors who claimed that the various kingdoms have no any system of government. The works of archeologist carried out in some areas located within the confine of these major ethnic groups also gave impetus to the claim of historian on politics and political arrangement of these people (Abdulsalami, 2013).

The 3 (three) dominant ethnic groups (Yoruba, Ibo and Hausa/Fulani) out of 250 ethnic groups in Nigeria had their forms of administration long before the colonial era. The Oba (Yoruba kingdom) and Emir (Fulani emirates) constitute the centralized political authority serve as the Executive function but the Ibos (Ibo kingdom) had no centralized political authority, hence they are referred to as “Republican”. The executive functions were performed by the council of elders, the age- grades and some other title holders (e.g. the OKPARA’s).

The Legislative function was performed by the Obas and his senior chiefs, who are responsible for law making. Hence, the enactment of new laws, decision to wage wars, allocation of vacant lands and the imposition of taxes were carried out jointly by the Oba and his senior chiefs. Likewise the Emir, who maintenances of law and order over his subjects and levies tax but makes sure he did not contravene the Islamic laws. Similar functions are performed by the Hakimi and the village headsin their various constituencies. The Ibos did not have any clear line of authority in their government. The council of Elders, and age- grades enact the laws.

As a judicial function, lineage, compound heads and elders came together to settle conflicts in the Yoruba system, but if it could not resolved, the king and high elders will judge the case.The Alkalis (Judges) of the Fulani Emirate administered the sharia (Muslim) laws throughout the length and breadth of the Emirates in cases such as marriage, debt, slander, property ownership, inheritances, divorce, etc. elders within the family group and the village settle disputes to reach a compromise.

This shows that Africa had a system of Government long before the colonial rule began, and as such, refute the claims of some authors or writers from Europe that Africa has no system of government.

According to Tamuno(2003:13) “Federalism is that form ofgovernment where the component units of a political organization participate in sharing powers and functions in a co-operative manner through the combined forces of ethnic pluralism and cultural diversity, among others”. In the words of A.V. Dicey “Federalism is a political invention which is intended to reconcile national

unity and power, with the maintenance of the rights of the separate member states” (Cited in Elaigwu and Akindele, 1996:38).
