Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) for Windows version 20 was used. Statistical tools of analysis for descriptive statistics captured measures of central tendency such as arithmetic mean, standard deviation presented in tables in frequencies and percentages. Inferential statistics both parametric and non-parametric, tested hypothesis through Multiple Regression Analysis for association between two independent variables on a dependent variable.
