have provided money to aid in medical industrial and agricultural research as

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
Whereas the reason why social responsibility is assumed by business is
well-know. Nigeria as an emergmy country with only a short industrial history
may just be waking up to phenomenon of social responsibility. The business man
must examine the impact of social responsibility on the public good of the
policy alternatives he is free to elect and implement. In doing so he is
governed by what the ought to from the point of view of society and his own
inner standards of rights and wrong when a business show concern for society,
there are good two reasons that govern his decision.
The first is a concern for legality, fairness and decency and the second is the
threat of regulation that will be forthcoming if business behaviour does not
meet the standards applied to it by society.
The problem of this study is to establish that there is awareness of the
concept of social responsibility owing to the Nigerian business and how it is
practiced if it exists.
