  1. Limitations of the study

During the process and course of this research, a number of problems were encountered which include the following;

  1. Time, finance and access to book record of the organization and journals, but as much as possible objectivity was observed.
  2. Due to the uniqueness and the controversial nature of the research, we have had to be very subtle in eliciting information so as to avoid prejudicing or giving our blessing to any claim or opinion as they stand publicly. Even then total cooperation in obtaining information was not possible.
  3. Relevant books and literatures were not readily available in the school library and the organization consulted.
  4. Where some journals, papers, articles were seen, they were so much of foreign nature than the domestic environment of Nigeria was not depicted.
  5. The tense academic environment was a bi constraint to the research because we had to execute the project and yet contend with the continuous assessment of the policy of polytechnic.
