The socio economic factors is and environment such as equitable distribution among society members. The demand rate of a commodity also determine the profitability of the sale of pure or sachet water and if the manufacture’s improve on the quality of their product, it attracts market sale as well in most cases for, certain tributes and to dominate the marketing of a particular product.
This is also common with the Igob’s who are solely undertaking the sale of pure water in campus III as the researcher clearly showed. To determine or know the motive behind drinking water business in campus III, the researcher found out that the demand of sachet water by student has become compelling at a relative high quest.
More so, the so-called sachet water is iced due to the preservative in the refrigerator and hygienic nature of the treatment. Students are group of different personalities who do not take care of public amenities as it would however, be costly for students because they might be rooms for germs which would causes harm to the body system.
