Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) was founded on November 29, 1999 after formal registration under the relevant extent laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Before then, however, there existed in Nigeria, smaller regional Associations with their activities restricted to their particular regions within the country. These all collapsed to form a truly National Association now known as ALGON.


ALGON is the umbrella Association of all the Local Governments and Area Councils in Nigeria and its membership is institutional, that means that Local Governments are the members but being represented by Council Chairmen.


The Association is a veritable platform for a united Local Governments voice on socio-political issues in Nigeria and indeed globally.
