    Abstract

    Decentralisation is a dominant debate in development. The enormous and growing discussions on Decentralisation are well underway all over the world by prominent scholars and policy makers. Further, Decentralisation is not a new concept, but a well-formulated and structured view of an old idea. The present paper seeks to understand the basic idea of decentralisd governance from the backdrop of democratic theory and contemporary public administration; and concertedly reviews some of the mundane glaring issues facing decentralised governance.
