In typical democratic government which is the government arrangement of the day, a lot of plans and funds are stated in budget (yearly) on how to develop rural areas and make life more bearable for the inhabitants Funding is very important in the development of any project and not just finding but adequate funding, this is because without this funds nothing can be done. It does not matter if the funds generated internally or is been appropriated to that region by the government, if the is being not adequate then the cam is defected so in this study, we will be taking a artificial look at the causes of this inadequate funding and how deep its effect has eaten into the rural development of most parts of this country.

It does not matter if the fund is generated internally or is been appropriated to that region by the government, if it is not adequate then the cam is defected so in this study, we will be taking a critical look at the causes of this has eaten into the rural development of most parts of this country.

1.3 Statement of Problems

Local government funding problems are various categories and each one of them is equal allocations from the federal government. Local government is the third tier of government in Nigeria, state government however have a considered influence over the local government council, but the function of local government are now recognized by the fourth schedule of the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria. There are various source of revenue of funds to the local government areas to help in the development of various rural areas.

The major problems of rural areas in Nigeria are summarized as, inadequate levels of agriculture productivity particular in food crop; high levels of absolute and rural poverty; and poor level of infrastructure facilities (Shiru, 2008). The fundamental problems facing agricultural mechanization in Nigeria include adoption of mechanization strategies which are often proffered by government and international agencies that do not pay sufficient attention to the interests of the local farmers and to the processes of technological change (Kutte and Tya, 2001).

Also there is this age long problem of under development in most rural area of this federation and most time part on the facts that the funds available to them are inadequate. Although there are the other causes of under development, but when compared to the problems attributed to funds, we discover that adequate funding is almost impossible but does not mean the standard faced with its peculiar cause and implication on the society. We discover that must local government areas if asked, always narrow down their liability to perform or carry out the major projects to problem of inadequate funds.

This work is intended to investigate the problems of under development but concentrate mainly on the problems of inadequate funds.
