Four hypotheses were formulated and subsequently tested to establish the influence of various independent variables on livelihood thereof, all the four hypotheses were significant at α=.05 as the values obtained were as follows; hypothesis H0 1: (P=0.00˂P=0.05), H0 2: (P=0.00˂P=0.05), H0 3: (P=0.002˂P=0.05), H0 4: (P=0.00˂P=0.05).
