Author(s): Ojo Oluwatoyin Emmanuel

Regardless of the several agencies and projects created to develop the rural communities and eventually leading to national development through its operations and modifications, the desired transformation of the rural communities still remain questionable. The purpose of this research work is to assess the various developmental plans, projects and programmes, their problems and way forward. Different books, journals, textbooks and publications were consulted as secondary data. The developmental planning faced numerous problems and makes its objectives unachievable, problem like corruption, lack of relevant data and continuity, slightly defunct public sector among others. The major limitations to the research are time constraint, access to literature and the age of data since the research is based on secondary data. This research through its findings and recommendation can help contribute in solving the problems associated with developmental planning at all level, it can also help understand what is needed to be done when carrying out projects and programmes.
