First, communities should be allowed to have a 100% control over the natural resources (land, crude oil, gold, etc) in their domain while they will be expected to pay (lets a 50% or more) in tax from whatever money they make from these resources, to the state and federal government. Second, all forms of taxation should be 100% localized. Communities/towns should be allowed to tax local businesses and make returns to the government. Third, a number of basic fiscal responsibilities should be funded by the revenues raised by the communities. Public Basic Schools (primary and secondary), community health centers, security personnel, etc should all be managed and funded by local communities and not the government. Government can set the standards, provide training and possibly build infrastructures (if possible). As for the day-to-day running; recruitment (hiring and firing of staff), maintenance of infrastructures, discipline, etc., all these should be managed and funded by the communities. Local governments should therefore be funded from the local communities that constitute the local government and not from free federal allocation from Abuja. This is the only way to introduce accountability, commitment and sincerity in the management of local public fund.
