  • Background Of The Study

This could be traced back before, the independence of Nigeria; the, there was little or no manufacturing taking place. The role envisaged for the colonies by our colonial masters was that of producers of raw materials and consumers of finished products. Planned industrial development did not really commence until after Nigeria gained her sovereignty, there was change in economic activity due to the power shift from the colonial masters to the Nigerians. (INDIGENIZATION POLICY OF 1972).

In order to consolidate her political positions, Nigerian government started to encourage individuals to establish industries mainly for import substitutions. Manufacturing firms were set-up by private individuals for production of goods and services such as food processing, agro-allied industry, chemical, pharmaceutical industry etc.

Owing to the government encouragement on indigenization programmes in 1972 more business were established (as mentioned above). Also because of the vital roles business play in the economy, more manufacturing/multinational companies were established so as to stimulate economic activities and a means to develop the economy as a whole. Although, ever before the independence, most manufacturing sector that were operating in Nigeria economy were largely owned by foreigners and due to the indigenization programme that encouraged private owned business, Nigeria took interest in the operation and establishment. Most of the business owners or manufacturers were profit conscious of the consumer protection. In fact, almost everybody wants to make, it fast, and become a millionaires overnight. This ambition is what made most manufacturers to be producing low standard product which are detrimental to the health of the general public. Most products are below standard and do not at times achieve the objectives of the production. (Nnenna. B. Ani, 199:9) because of the average Nigerians attached to money (wealth), no matter how the wealth is a acquired, they dupe unsuspected business men or innocent member of the public.

Instead of causing more harm to the Nigeria economy, hey should have gone into good ad services productions in order to improve on the economy. (Nnenna. B. Ani, 199:9) thus conserving our dwindling foreign exchange earnings and generating employment opportunities for and earns leaves and university graduates and earns some foreign exchange foe the economy just as there was a tendency that manufacturing system/ multinational companies will be of great help to the whole economy. (Ojemba .G. Agbo. 199:67). They are a few things a developing country needs as much a multinational companies. These are few contributions from which it can benefit so much as from the multinational corporation can make. In the economy of developing or less developed countries in which Nigerian in one, the impact of multinational corporation may be described as follows: health, employment, education, creation of industries, skills development, social responsibility etc.  So the companies like GAC foods, plc gumess smith laline beedan, M&B etc have through these provisions really created a great development to our economy. On the other hand, many harm have been done the development of the Nigeria economy, there are loops holes on the total development. They have not been performing as expected. Nigeria breweries plc in Enugu state have not found to be different in the case of ignorance and mismanagement of resourced.

Because of the damages caused by most business to the economy as a developing one, government therefore embark on regulation and control of business to ignorance this level of productivity and also to make positive impact on the economy.

Looking  intently at this statement, we can deduce  that Nigeria is endowed with many natural resources, numerous to mention, inspite of the level of natural resources that Nigeria has, mismanagement, lack of direction and misappropriation among other are the factors that are militating against the development of the Nigeria economy.

The researcher will however go further to add other factors as government regulation and control imposed on the business organization which have proved to be impediment to the profitability of these business. These regulation and control include appointment to this business of unskilled or un-rained staff.
