The study focuses on the Impact of Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) on the growth of Local Governments in South western region of Nigeria. Efforts of building a realistic econometric model for Local Government Growth with regards to core Local government activities have been undertaken. The work involves the use of Pooled Ordinary Least Square (OLS) Regression technique to fit a realistic model into the collected panel data, and several model’s validity techniques such as Coefficient of determination (R2), Correlation coefficient(r), Durbin-Watson and F-statistic were employed to validate this model. Hypothesis was also tested to validate our theoretical background on IGR. The result revealed that IGR had impacted significantly on the growth of local government has observed in the R2 of 31.7%, Correlation coefficient of 0.563, Durbin-Watson of 2.02 and F-result of 4.060 with significance value of 0.008.
