The reasons could be the wish to induce a feeling of nationhood, which also led to the establishment of brand new capitals to be mentioned later ; a lack of qualified government officers; someone had to do the work that the colonial officers had done, but in some places these people simply did not exist; the fear that local authorities would turn against central authorities.
