AbstractMost of Africa’s political systems are based on the traditional or indigenous form of governance, which evolved out of the history, tradition, and culture of the people; and on the European model of governance, which was imported with colonization. Ghana’s local governance system is also characterized by this political dualism where traditional chieftaincy and modern local government structure interact with each other in intriguing ways.
