Women have been left out in the past national development plans, even their contributions to Gross National Product (GNP) of the nation have been treated as insignificant. The situation is further worsened by illiteracy, poverty, pest, and diseases, fire and other natural disasters. Many bodies had championed the course of the rural women in recent times notable among which are Better life for Rural Women (BLRW), Family Support Programme (FSP), Family Economic Advancement Programme (FEAP), and National Council for Women Society, empower and better the lots of women. Without doubt this research has through its discovery supported the fact that women are contributing immensely to national economic development through divers’ roles they play in their rest. These with other reasons had falsified the notion that women are subordinate to men in rural and national development. Finally, it is suggested in the study that greater access to education, credit land and technology will go a long way to improve women’s lots in the nation and in their contribution to national development, particularly in the local government to women in the rural communities of the country.
