K.N. IGWE, Elizabeth O. NDUBUISI-OKOH, Odionyenfe Osim AKUMA, Chukwu OKOCHE


The focus of this paper is on information infrastructures that are required for information delivery and development of rural communities in Nigeria. It x-rayed the concepts of information infrastructure, and its types for information delivery in rural areas, which are community information centres, rural school media centres, rural information and communication technology centres as well as community radio stations. The paper concluded that the absence of these rural information infrastructures is affecting the provision of information to rural dwellers, and therefore made a case for governments to factor rural information infrastructures in their development programmes for communities in Nigeria.
