The developmental plan should also be    evaluated.

1.1    Background to the Study

In   1976, a   uniform system of   local   government was introduced, the primary motive is to take development   direct from   the centre to the   people at the same reforms (1970:1) describe local government as a tool for rural development.

Some of these motives are the conscious attempt of the federal government to involve people in the management of their rural affairs through which the human and material resources of the rural dwellers can be effectively mobilized tapped and advanced into industrial process.

Since Nigeria started existing as a nation development has been taking place especially in the urban areas.  For the fact that the man often creates for what is good, it is often that people usually rush to urban areas where there are provision for the comfort and welfare of man by way of social amenities and the infrastructures provisions.  This are often of people is necessitated by the fact that rural areas are often neglected on terms of development but those who rush to develop (urban_ areas been to have forgotten that there’s every need to develop the area because they are the base, the beginning and also terminals destinations.

Odenigwe   1976:4  postulated  that  the  rural   subjection of the economy is endowed with abundant  natural  resources   unharnessed  for  this   to     be   increase would required integrating rural people in the rural development exercise through the provision of small scale industries of different types.  He defines industrialization as an integrated process of developing industries.  That means different thing to different people and circumstances.  Pic (1968 )  stated  that   industrialization  embraces  the  means  by  which  man  controls  or  modifies  his  natural  environment.  It is that great growth enquires change.  Industrialization is the major means of people adjusting to environment to satisfy their various and desire.

Industrialization is of course an application of    practical or mechanical.     Science  to industry’s  commerce,  it  is a  technical  know-how,  scientific   ideas,  information,  body   of  knowledge  or  material  or  goods   and services  capable of  being  systematic  and  sequential  in  the generation communicable   and   adoptable to  application  in  a  given  adoptable to application in a given economic,   political, social   and  machine used   by   man  to   manipulate his  development to  satisfy  his  basic   tools,   it is  not  this  platform  that  the  subject   matter managing  rural  development  through  industrialization  was  draw.

In   managing  rural   development   the  basic  role of  management  is to  plan,  organize   direct  and  control ,  it  is  our  collective   view  that  managers  lead   other  than  plan,   manpower   rather    than  direct,  pattern  rather  than  organize  and  access  rather  than  control.  The  effectiveness   of  management   arises  from  leadership  effort  towards,   the  simultaneous  creation  of  a  cooperative  and  learning  organization   of  facilitate  the  implementation  support  rural  and  national  development organization survival and effective   utilization.

1.2   Statement   of the Problem


One   of  the   main   reasons   for  creating   local  government   is to  bring   development  very  close   to  the   people    in   the  rural  area .   Unfortunately, the noble   objective   is the not   being   put   into   practice   or being really   actualized.

It is therefore suspected that our industrialization  process   is   characterized  by   lack   of   infrastructure and   intensive   use   of   human   labour,   obsolete  technologies,  the   consequence  of  these  or  grovelass of  control  our  decisions  on  what   technology  to   import,   low   level   of   local  initiative   in  indigenous   scientific  and   innovative   capacity  and  perpetuation   of the  cycle  of  poverty   among   the   rural   people.

A  number of  approaches  and  program  has   been  proposed  and  implemental  by   the  government  towards reducing  or  eradicating technological   dependence   and  other   associated issues  in  rural  development.   Some  of  the  program  failed  even before  the  implementation  while  some   have   failed   to  yield the  desired   result .  All   the   programs   have   been   based  on the  transfer or  the transfer of technology  from  advance  to  developing  stage.  These   strategies  have  not  work   because  a  lot  of   the  technological  being   transferred   is  not “appropriate”   to  our  environment.

Policies suffer from ineffective implementation principle because it has no inbuilt.  Capacity to address wrong implementation.  This is our experience or industrialization.  Failure of local government in Awgu to provide enabling process is a source of worries to rural dwellers stimulating doubts in the or such programme this has distributed.  The mind of the researcher and the question is: how do we manage rural development through industrialization.
