CHAPTER ONE

1:0      INTRODUCTION

1.1      Background of the Statement

Nigeria policy makers in recent years have been showing appreciable degree of interest in efforts by groups of individuals and communities to pull their resources together to solve common problems aimed at making life worthwhile in their locality.

Community effort is a purposeful device that has for ages sustained and maintained most communities in Nigeria, including Ibagwa-Aka. After the civil war, there was little or no financial assistance to their human, economic and social resources divested,  without delay they mobilized their resources to rebuild their war battered economy and social infrastructures.  Rebuilding of homes, schools, post offices, roads markets and provision of amenities like water, Electricity etc.  (even by those that never had any) were done through the community efforts.

Sometimes the government offers technical and financial assistance to rural communities embarking on such self-help efforts.  They do this through government agencies like community development departments in the Federal and State’s ministries of Rural/Social Development and Directorates of Food, roads and rural Infrastructures (DFRRI).  These notwithstanding the facts remains that a lot of problems persisted.

Attempt will be made in this paper to examine these problems that militate against community development in Nigeria rural community with particular reference to Ibagwa-Aka.  Autonomous community in Igbo-Eze south

Local Government Area of Enugu State.  It is with the view of identifying possible improvement strategies.

1.2      Statement of the Problem

Rural duelers have rightfully asserted their place in the scheme of things in Ibagwa-Aka in Igbo-Eze South L.G.A of Enugu State, as they have continued to provide the food needs of the urban population and also supply the raw materials for agro-based industries located in the semi-rural and urban areas of the state and Nigeria at large.

Although, the Ibagwa-Aka Community Ugbo-Eze South L.G.A of Enugu State inhabitants remains the life-wire of the Enugu and Nigerian economy, it has not attracted the needed attention from the government in terms of resource allocation.

Most rural areas in Nigeria lack good water supply motorable roads and electricity (Omorogbe 2005).

According to the Fourth National Development Plan (Volume I) about 95% of the entire population of rural areas in Nigeria is not covered by any form of modern medical facilities of which Ibagwa-Aka Community is experiencing that of course these problems needs to be addressed in order to reduce the severity of the problem on the Ibagwa-Aka Community.

It is now evident that the task of good governance of the Local/Rural Areas cannot be left to the government alone, rural people themselves must have a stake in their own development.

Their fore, there is great need to pay attention to the problem of improving the quality of life of Ibagwa-Aka Community in Igba-Eze South Local Government Area of Enugu State.    

1.3      OBJECTIVES OF STUDY

Generally most rural communities are faced with or confronted by a set of community development problems and may therefore require information to develop responses.

The main aim of this work is to look into and find out these problems rural communities development encounter while executing community development programmes with particular reference to my town Ibagwa-Aka which is in Igbo-Eze South Local Government Area of Enugu State.  These problems will be highlighted based on my research.

The work will in addition offer recommendations with a view to involving more permanent solutions in its future community development programmes.
