ABSTRACT


The major concern of this research work is to assess the role of Warnment Area of Delta State in rural development of its constituent communities.
In achieving this, the research work relies on descriptive approach and structured
questionnaire and interview for data collection. A simple size of one hundred and fifty
(150) respondents was used for the study. Our findings revealed that the council has
not performed well in developing the rural areas over the years. Various
recommendations were made based on the findings among such are, increase in
revenue allocation by both Federal and State governments, serious commitment be
made by such staff toward internally generated revenue and the use of direct labour
(council engineers) in carrying out projects in place of contractors. Improvement of
infrastructure by the councils is also recommended.

CHAPTER ONE
BACKGROUND OF STUDY


1.1 Introduction
The expediency for the creation of local government anywhere in the world
stems from the need to facilitate development at the grassroots. The importance of
local government is a function of its ability to generate sense of belongingness, safety
and satisfaction among its populace. All forms of government, regimes or political
systems have so far ensured the attainment of this goal. Such strategy for ensuring
national administrative development and political efficacy is found in the concept and
practice of local government. Whatever is the mode of government, local government
has been essentially regarded as the path to, and guarantor of, national integration,
administration and development.
In Nigeria’s socio-political context, with multiplicity of culture, diversity of
languages and differentiated needs and means, the importance of such an organization
in fostering the needed national consciousness, unity and relative uniformity as well
as preservation of peculiar diversities cannot be over-emphasized. Central to the
creation of local government, however, is its ability to facilitate an avenue through
which government and the people intermix, relate and more quickly than any other
means resolve or dissolve issues that may have heated the system. Local government
has been perceived as a panacea for the diverse problems of the diverse people with
diverse culture.
