ONI, S. 2014. Governance and Legislature-Executive Relations at the State Government Level of Nigeria´s Presidential System. In Politické vedy. [online]. Roč. 17, č. 4, 2014. ISSN 1335 – 2741, s. 142-156. Dostupné na internete: <>.



Several decades after political independence, Nigeria is still faced with the problem of the right model of governance that will achieve its noble objectives. Following the collapse of the First Republic, Nigeria jettisoned the Westminster parliamentary system and adopted the presidential system. Neither has the parliamentary nor the presidential model of governance been able to guarantee the political stability that is much needed for development and the relationship between the executive and legislature being the single
most problematic issue. With heavy reliance on empirical and secondary data, this paper examines the nature of legislature-executive relations at the state level of Nigeria’s presidential system and found that these two political institutions have been relating with each other under an atmosphere of mutual suspicion, acrimony and political rivalry orchestrated largely by local godfathers in alliance with the presidency. It therefore argues that, while legislative-executive conflict may be inevitable in the presidential democratic government, mechanism for harmonious relationship between the legislature and executive is imperative for good governance in Nigeria.

Key words: Governance, legislature-executive, relations, state government, presidential system, Nigeria
