1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 Women and Development in Nigeria
Some people have identified some areas of development where women are active in Nigeria. Mabogunje (1991) identified the eight cardinal elements of sustainable development as they affect women, e.g. education, health, culture politics, economy, agriculture, enhanced environment, quality and peaceful co-existence.

Nigerian women take active part in agriculture. In a study of women's participation in agricultural production in Northern Nigeria's rural areas, Ahmed Ogungbile and Olukosi (1991), found that women were active participants in the process. According to them, about 90 percent of the women interviewed had farming as their main occupation (both arable and pastoral) including those in purdah. The general patrilineal system of inheritance enabled most women in Northern Nigeria to have access to land through their husbands who acquire it through inheritance. women in this part of the country who had farms of their own had half the sizes of the men's farm. They planted the same type of crops like the men but they (women) were hardly physically involved in land preparation and molding but they were involved in fertilizer application, punting, thinning, weeding and harvesting.

In some parts of Nigeria e.g. the south eastern state however, women are involved in land preparation and moulding.   They have full control in their contribution to agricultural development. Though, there are traces of division of labour based on sex, the functions of women could not possibly be dispensed with if maximum production is to be attained
