The quantitative data collected was analyzed by categorizing it into themes that met the objectives of the study and then coding them for ease of analysis using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) through running frequencies, percentages and presenting it in form of frequency distribution tables, while qualitative data was analyzed by involving thematic frameworks that coded data into themes.
