Abstract

In every organization, set objectives had always remained paramount for its growth and delivery of quality services. Local government like every other organization has its objectives to be achieved and these could only be delivered through effective and efficient utilization and management of information and records at its disposal. Worrisome is the continued existence of the institution of local government in Nigeria which has in the recent time attracted many criticisms due largely to serial poor performances in achieving quality service delivery to the people within its area of jurisdiction. However, it is against this established premise that the paper sets to appreciate available information materials and records management for quality service delivery in Nigerian local government system. Methodologically, the study adopts qualitative method and data were ostensibly generated through secondary sources of data collection and analyzed in content. The findings of the study revealed that serial poor performances of local government in developmental state of Nigeria were because of poor culture, negligence, improper and ineffective documentation of information materials at the disposal of local government. However, the paper on its part strongly recommends a transformative route such as the utilization of e-governance and frequent auditing in the administration of local government.
