The findings of the study indicates that an inverse relationship exists between Rural Transformation (RUTF) and Employment in the study area in the study area. The result of the study indicates that the strength of the relationship is 0.092** or 9.2% and the relationship is not statistically significant (p>0.01). On the basis of p-value of the estimate, we accept the null hypothesis; that is, we accept that there is statistically significant relationship between employment and rural transformation. A positive or direct relationship between Wealth among (WAMP) and Rural Transformation (RUTF) in Benue State and the relationship is statistically significant (p<0.01). A positive or direct relationship between Crime Rate (CRMR) and Rural Transformation (RUTF) in the study area State and the relationship is statistically significant (p<0.01). It was concluded that the study concludes that there is greater emphasis not only on generating more employment opportunities but also on improving the quality of new and existing jobs so that it can lead to increase in wealth and standard of life of the people.
