Keywords:Community, Development Plan, Government, Self-help, Grassroots
The town union government has shown to be a major player in rural community development efforts in Igboland. Being a major element of change in the socio-political organization of the people introduced by colonialism, town union government turned out to be a very important instrument of self-help approach to community development in post-colonial period, and by the end of the Nigeria-Biafra war, its effect became very visible. By 1979, the Amakofia Development Union (ADU) was formed. Its foundation accelerated community development in Amakofia Ututu community.
