The Legislature comprises the leader of the council, the deputy leader and councilors. The legislative powers vested in the Local Government Council are exercised by the bye-laws passed by its legislature and assented to by the chairman.
The functions of the legislature in the Local Government include:

(i.) Law making
The Legislature makes bye-laws. The list of matters on which a Local Government Council is expressly empowered to enact bye-laws are contained in section 1 (a), (b) of the fourth schedule of the 1999 constitution for the exclusive list. The concurrent list of matters on which both a Local Government Council and the State Assembly have powers to legislate on are on section 2 (a) (b) of the fourth schedule.

2. Making Resolutions and Approval.
The council exercises its powers through resolutions and approval in relation to individual or specific cases.
(a). A resolution to remove the chairman or leader of the council by a two third majority. This function is distinct from the authority to make bye-laws, which have wide applicability in the area (Ojong:2002:75).
(b). The power to approve by a simple majority of the members of the council the nomination of the Chairman of the Local Government, for the appointment of the Vice-Chairman of the Local Government in case of vacancy by reason of death, resignation or removal.
(c ). The power to approve the nomination of any one appointed by the Chairman of the Local Government as Supervisor. (Ugwu: 2000:18, Issues in Local Government and Urban Administration)
