Dedication
This research work is dedicated to my father in heaven God almighty the author and finisher of our Faith whom by his grace foreknew, predestined and made this work a success and for seeing me through my academic years. And to my parents, Mr. And Mrs. Anjugu Moses and my siblings without whose caring support and prayers it would not have been possible.

Acknowledgements
My profound gratitude goes to God Almighty the creator of all mankind for his faithfulness, favor, grace and mercies towards me from the beginning of the Academic session to the end. And for a successful project well done.

My immense regards goes to my honorable supervisor, a virtues woman, a great mother, a great and wonderful lecturer and a friend indeed, Dr. Acholonu Regina, who despite all the stress and tight schedule made out time to go through my work with all mistakes and help make the necessary corrections and still never gave up on me and in her own way encouraged me to carryon to the end. I pray that the Lord will richly reward you in double folds and according to his riches in glory. Amen. My regards also goes to my worthy and able lecturers who in their own way brought me to where I am now, Mrs. Justina Obi, Mr. Ferdinand Obasi, Mr. Ugwuanyi Felix, Mr. Okoye Godwin, Mrs. Benson Eluwa Virginia, Mr. Edeh Jude, Mr. Agboeze Damian and Mr. Nwonu Clifford, for their immeasurable impact of knowledge and wisdom in my life. I will forever remain grateful to you all. My sincere gratitude goes to my loving and ever caring parents, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Anjugu who were there for me due to their love and desire for education and above all their prayers which brought me thus far. I couldn’t have asked God for more because they are all I will ever need.

My special and profound gratitude goes to my lovely siblings; Maku, Ashetsu, Akenyi, Abim, Maive, Owulama, Maikolo Ashelo and Akolo who in his own way helped me in creating and choosing my topic and generating material, I say a big thank you. I bless the name of Lord indeed you’re a blessing in your own way.

Many thanks to my roommate, Elnathan, Funke, Nmachi and Mesoma I pray the lord will see you through your academic session in Jesus name.
My thanks goes to my good and loving...
