If the Nigeria government will read the hand writing on the wall and respond positively to the yearning of the masses in the country they will see the need of giving a free hand to the local government and encourage them give rural development a serious consideration.
The implication of the formal system of local government in Nigeria leave very much to be desired because local government people at the grass root level must enjoy a high degree of autonomy granted to the various local government, with particular reference to Ilorin West Local Government Area.

5.0 Summary, Recommendation and Conclusion
5.1 Summary of Finding
The summarization of findings was observed that a large percentage of manager of the local government are non-indigene of the area though some have performed well. Seriously, the local governments are still practicing local administration due to the percentage of workers that are non-indigene of the local government area.
During the process of carrying out the research work of this project, it was observed that in spite the fact that Ilorin West Local Government Area came into being in 1991, its development growth of infrastructure wise has been compassed with other local government area such as Moro Local Government Area of Kogi State to mention but a few.
For growth and rapid development of Ilorin West Local Government Area, these presentations should devour to employ high qualified and personal skill that indigene of the area to head various department to enhance its service. It is by so doing that emphasis will shift from local administration to local government, only few inadequate of this area are appointed into key position in this service.
I think the commitment and dedication to the physical and infrastructural development of the area is likely to be achieved. Also the roles and functions of community development workers in the area can not be over emphasized.
Hence, it is strongly recommended that highly qualified and skill community development officer should employ to motivate project of the local government area. The role been presenting physical by community development officers in our various local government area serve much learns to be desired. The work of the members of the community are deciding more over, on leadership style is check mailed that best but participate leadership has been discovered to be effective grass root mobilization. This is a true statement and how community development officers in Nigeria will absolve this truth that their workers that are needed today are those that can manage conflict situation. If we are to win over effect of improving the development strategies in the rural area, the role of community development workers must be taken more seriously.
I would like to encourage Ilorin West Local Government to pursue aggressive rural development and participator with the aims and objectives of Ilorin West Local government Area, should endeavor to improve social services to the rural populace which are generously provided to the people of urban area in such a way that our people are not denied of their right from all indications in Ilorin West Local Government are badly denied the social service being of time present regime in the local government.
During the process of carryout the research work of this project, it was observed that in spite the fact that Ilorin West Local Government Area came into being in 1991, its development growth of infrastructure wise has been compass with other local government area such as Moro Local Government, Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kogi State to mention but few. It was also observed that a large percentage of managers of the local government area are non-indigene of the area, though some have performed well and seriously the local government are still practicing local administration due to the very large percentage of workers that are non-indigene of the local government area.
This research work has also afforded me the opportunity of the federal government to distribute development programme to every nooks and crannies of the country. It was discovered that the federal government recognizing that the local government being the thirds tiers of government and the closet to the people at the grass or local area, should be able to generate revenue through which its development programme should be carried out accordingly.
Hence, the government and Asa Local Government Area were carried out from Ilorin province.
Realizing the virtual role of local government has given it additional responsibility of high degree of independence and enhances to find a long way to improve the service of Ilorin West Local Government.
