ABSTRACT
The study examines the place of the institution of traditional rulers in Nigeria, noting that in spite of the odds facing it, the institution has refused to die and, hence, its relevance, even if it no longer plays the role it played in the pre colonial and colonial periods. It highlights the different schools of thought on the traditional rulers and concludes that "Traditional Rulers' Assembly" could be put in place to contribute to the process of nation building, development and integration.
