It also highlighted constrains faced by communities in their development stride.

5.2 Recommendation

The development stride of Kwara State as an agricultural state, without much industry in particular and the rural development has been slow due to the agrarian nature of its economy. However, the present effort by government to revolutionize agricultural industries through adequate finance, use of modern agricultural equipments and resourceful extension agricultural officials as well as the establishment of agro allied industries in the rural communities will brings about the needed changes and development.

Sustained government effort should be channeled to the provision of social amenities, such as good roads to encourage mobility to and from these rural areas.

Provision of basic health chicks and sanitation awareness and facilities, would improve health living increase productivity. As the slogan health is wealth is a reality.

The provision of electricity and pipe borne water would encourage more agro allied industries for processing of agricultural raw materials. This would increase employment and reduce wastage of on process agricultural output.

Clean water in the rural areas would reduce the outbreak of water borne disease, through provision and maintenance of bore hole.

There is also the need for government at a both state and local government level to involve community members when mooting the construction of any project in a community. Workshops and enlighten training for both local government personnel and representatives of rural communities to enhance cooperation, coordination and proper supervision of activities and project to benefit the grassroots must be encourage from time to time.

Adequate funnels should be made available to the local government as the closest tier of government to the people to facilitate, improve participation by rural inhabitants in government activities, in terms of maintaining government structures like schools, clinic/dispensary, bore hole and rural Federal roads. This will increase productivity of the people and increase government revenue drive as well as rapid grow and development.

Sustained effort should be geared towards education and enlightens of the rural population through awareness campaign to help mitigate unforeseen emergencies like epidemic, accidents and natural disaster like main flood etc.
The requirement of available is limited and scarce. Local government policies and programmes must be tailored towards proper and judicious allocation of resource to meet the needs of the people. Area of priorities must be identified to avoid the provision of wasteful white elephant projects.

5.3 Conclusion

There is the convergence of opinion that the importance of local government as an agent of community development cannot be over emphasized in nation building.

It is imperative therefore, that inhabitants of the local communities be involved in the development planning through the identification of their needs and including the adoption of measure that would discourage and reduce the effect of rural-urban migration.

Provision of agro-industries would increase and expand employment, health and medical facilities would improve and encourage health living and sanitary system.
