This study centres on the roles of Traditional rulers in the development of rural areas; the study was motivated by the apparent waning sphere of influence by traditional rulers and the need for the development of rural areas. The primary aim of this study is to examine the interface between traditional rulers and rural development. The work argues that the roles of traditional rulers are still relevant in the consolidation of development in ensuring peace and stability within their domains. In this light the role of traditional rulers would provide an enabling environment for development to thrive. Rural development has been found lacking in Nigeria. Thus, Governments have devised several programmes to initiate rural development. However, Poor planning and implementation processes resulting mainly from lack of the involvement of the local people has made the objectives of this programmes mere aspirations. Therefore a participatory process is needed where the local people will be involved in the programme. In view of this, this paper recommends that traditional ruler should be made to fill the vacuums where the officials of government have fallen short.
