Rural structural development also involves improving the life of race level of the people as a result of technology which eliminated traditional way of doing things and nation at large and thus allowing the people to anticipate more fully and affecting in the development process and body policies of the nation and ensuring greater economic resources for the rural people.

Philippators (2003) Rural structural development begins with a step which is improvement in the educational standard, once the education standard of the people is improved to a good standard, there is an introduction of new technologies and technical know-how which result in the creation of new styles of buildings and re-structuring of the old ones in to new methods.

Through rural structural development there is increase profit, turn around situation in government and management talents as a result of new creation of systems and re-creation of the old ones which physical identities, its self in terms of new roads, school’s educational standard etc.
