1.8 Definition of Terms or Operational Terms

Migration:

Migration refers to the movement of people from one place to another. It is equally defined as population mobility. this can take place within a country, region or it can take place from one country to another. Migration can also be defined as a response to possible dissatisfaction to people within their present location to another location.

For the purpose of this project, the word rural shall be described as a place that lack necessary infrastructure and telecommunication we may say assume that any place having population of less than 5,000 people sparsely populated and lack any form of wage earning in economic with less tribal diversity and strictly controlled socio culturally should be regarded as a rural area.

Urban:

This means metropolitan centre were basic infrastructural facilities are available. An urban area is relatively large and permanent settlement of social heterogeneous individuals in another definition.

G.W. fair Holms states that urban settlements are high concentration of 5,000 people living in geographical area having the following characteristics, a wage earning economy, a trial diversification, and absence of traditional socio-cultural control.

Urbanization:

Urbanization may be defined as the process of territorial population concentration both in form of rural-urban nations and multiplication of points of concentration and the increase in size of individual concentration.

5.2 Recommendations

From the foregoing discussion the following are recommended and if followed it will alleviate the problem of rural-unban migration in Nigeria. There is need to evolve a continuous deliberation positive and sincere policies and programme to minimize if not curbed there fore in order to reduce it to the barest minimum and to ensure rapid rural development the researcher here by recommended the following:

  1. Stimulation rural development so as to create a strong barrier through creation of job opportunity by establishing small scale industries are created through programme many school leavers and graduation can take employment in rural areas in stead of migrating urban centre in search of job which are far below desired
  2. Government should a matter of urgency and priority embark on provision of social and infrastructural facilities throughout the nooks and crannies of the country. In this wise, government should intensify its efforts in construction of stable feeder roads so as to facilitate easy access to urban centre for transportation of farm produce and at the same time for procurement of farm inputs.
  3. Hospital, clinic and maternity centres should be made available for the rural dwellers. This is necessary because the ability and willingness to engage in any economic activities effectively depends on the state of one’s health. Therefore, if people are healthy and if they can easily obtain health care services, they will expends their energy and produce more goods and services. Moreso, deliberate establishment of institution of higher learning in the rural areas as well as the development of other social infrastructural facilities like provision of pipe borne water and electricity in the right direction.
  4. Government should seriously encourage and stimulate the community development project through all necessary forms of assistance to improve rural conditions. This could range from construction of roads (feeder) establishment of small-scale industries and building of facilities among others.
  5. There should be public lecture or widely circulated newspaper, pamphlets to inform and counsel the school leavers and other prospective migrants about the constraints in the town.
  6. Government should set up co-operative stores, which will supply provisions in the villages.
  7. Expansion of small-scale labour intensive. Industries should be encouraged to enable more rural people to secure jobs.

5.3 Conclusion

The phenomenon or rural-urban migration is one of the major problem cutting across both the developed and developing countries. But the problem is much more prominent in Nigeria that it is estimated that the rate of rural-urban migration is 50% as compared to about 30% population growth rate and it should be rated that this high rate of rural-urban migration has stingingly aid to the poor rate of rural development.

Although, Nigeria government has actively responded through national policies and national development plans. The concepts of balanced growth and the accelerated development of agriculture and rural sector at large. However, the actual allocation of resources as estimated in various national development plans have not been such as sustain the priority rating generally attached to rural development in the plans. Therefore, if the aforementioned government policies and programme are sincerely planned, initiated and carefully implemented with the sole aim and goal of developing the rural areas. The high rate of rural-urban migration will be drastically reduced if not totally eradicated in our society.
