Abstract:When Akwa Ibom State (Nigeria) was created in 1987 the state government adopted the Integrated Rural Development Strategy (IRDS). IRDS provided for the development of rural communities as a first step towards developing the state's agricultural and industrial sectors. However, while all annual budgets between 1989 and 1999 signalled rural development as a cardinal policy, no significant budgetary allocations were made for its implementation, except in 1992 and 1993. Similarly, despite budgetary allocations which suggest that funds have been made available for agriculture and industries, no meaningful activities have been carried out in these sectors. Notes, ref.
