Abstract

The current Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria makes provision for the existence of organs of governmental structures such as the Legislature, Executive and the judicial arms of the government. It also provides for the existence of the Federal and State governments. The Constitution equally went ahead to apportion powers to each of these organs and tears of the government. Again, it made provisions with respect to the manner on how these structures control themselves through the principles of checks and balances. it is in the light of the these assertions that this paper sought to examine the extent of the powers bestowed on the State Governor by the Constitution and the implication, more especially on the side of the Nigerian Police to control the Commissioner of Police posted to his State, though with limitation. This paper equally went ahead to recommend that the Governors ought to be given constitutional powers without any iota of limitation. It is our conclusion that if this recommendation is put in practice, will Nigerian democracy be seen as a type worthy to be emulated world over.
