In the course of camping out this research work, numerous problems were encountered, one of the problems was finance, being a student, and it was not easy for me. Financially.

Secondly, most of the company’s management staff and workers were not opportune to respond to me due to their engagement with the company’s activities. Hence3 the researcher suffered and wasted a lot of time waiting for their responses and at the end, some copies of the questionnaires were not returned.

Time constraint, while carrying out this research work, the researcher was subjected to a stipulated time limit within which the findings must be reported.

A study of this magnitude requires more time than that which was given to the researcher and this was a serious limitation on my side and the research work.
