Traditional Rulers And The Dilemma Of Democratic Transition In

Politics-democracy.

In:  a paper Presented at the Conference on the Dilemmas of Democracy in Nigeria, University of Wisconsin –Madison; The African Studies Programme, 205 Ingralam Hall, University of Wisconsin- Madison, Madison. 1995. November 10-13.

Abstract: The  paper examines the relevance of traditional rulers and chiefs in local government administration in Nigeria and analyses their roles in the political programmes of General Muhammadu Buhari and Ibrahim Babangida. The paper discusses the political relevance of traditional rulers and chiefs in the evolving debates on constitutional democracy in Nigerian politics and argues that the significance of chieftaincy institutions is not solely sustained by the pressing demands of institutional transformation, but equally by the entrenched interests of dominant regional elites. The paper stresses the influence wielded by traditional rulers in their domains and talks about the fate of any traditional ruler who ignores his people. A section of the paper examines the relationship between traditional rulers and the Babangida regime (1985-1993). The paper claims that in the early hours of his administration, Babangida disregarded traditional rulers but their influence in regional and national issues later strengthened the relationship between him and the traditional rulers. The paper in conclusion, deals with two major programmes instituted by the military regimes of Generals Buhari and Babangida (the Dasuki local government review and the deliberations of the political bureau) to address the complex problems of local gover5nment and constitutional democracy.
