Abstract:The housing problems of the rural population in Nigeria were examined through a case study of five villages in the Akure Local Government Area of Ondo State. The main purpose was specifically to find out the quality of the houses in the rural villages. Water supply and electricity services were taken as indicators of housing quality, and thus the variables in the study were based on these two items. Results indicate that the rural population lives in squalid and poor housing and that the reasons for this are to be found in the low purchasing power of rural dwellers. Ref., tab.
