Hypotheses tested showed the following results: 1. That the level of infrastructural development on ground in these Local Councils did not measure up to the amount of revenue available to them. 2. That proper revenue management has not taken place at the Local Government level of the two States. 3. That Local Government Councils are instruments of grass - root development.
