Rural resources have a lot of potentials that needed to be brought into full production to uplift the values. These values can only be achieved when other resources like times, money, infrastructure, expertise and the like are applied. The high demand for products is expected to propel
the application of the said resources into maximum production which in turn increases the value of the rural environment, confirming value to be a function of profit.
Unfortunately, government policies and programs in the year past failed to reflect the need for balance between rural and urban development. Thus, most development policies and programs are urban-oriented. As a result, rural dwellers have been subjected to poverty, unemployment, poor infrastructure, economic and social defects. Incidentally, rural dwellers stick to migration.
Therefore, this study on Rural Development. As a strategy, for reducing Rural-Urban Migrations in Nigeria, a case study of Ishiehi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, seek to identify rural development programs/projects extent of rural-urban migration and factors
responsible for rural-urban migration in the study area.
From the findings based on the analyzed data, integrated Rural Development Strategy has been pin-pointed and recommended as a feasible and viable measure toward minimizing the rate of
rural-urban migration in Nigeria at large and Ishielu in particular.
