constrained with the following factors.
As a student, I encountered a lot of financial constraints and
this hindered my obtaining all relevant materials information or statistical
data during the course of my study.

respondents. Their non-challant attitude and above all their level of ignorance
led to some of the an reliable result obtained in this study.

periodicals (secondary data) also posed by the prevailing economic crunch.

visited with reference to ANAMMCO was in no small way a constraint.
