Thus considering the fact that BEDC operates allover Nigeria and it will be difficult for the researcher to visit every office operation and as such pose a set back.

The researcher will also encounter the problem of partial low response from respondents who will complain of being in the office. Another limitation which probably obtain a random sample. Another limitation is lack of time and finance which will affect the researcher from giving this work the full concentration it deserves.
