Rural development can be defined as the systematic improvement of basic needs and transformation of the economic viability of the rural populace to a moderate sustainability. The objectives of this study are to ascertain the extent of rural development in an adult naïve rural community, determine the models and causes of under performance of the existing policy thrust for rural development, examine other reoccurring problems and suggests suitable measures to improve the performance. The researcher used both primary and secondary methods of data collection which was analyzed using simple percentage ratio. It was ascertained that there are factors responsible for under performance of existing policy thrust for rural development which include the status of poverty of the adult naïve community (abject, and proportionate poverty), lack of basic needs, high illiteracy rate, value degeneration, malfunction health centres, lack of political will, inadequate finance and so on. It is suggested that redesigning resource allocation strategies, structural development, integration of resources, value regeneration, provision of adequate finance, and so on could further enhance the rural development of the adult naïve community.
