BACKGROUND OF STUDY
It might be necessary to define from onset what privatization and commercialization means.
A functional definition of privatization is the transfer of ownership of public enterprises to private hands. This means that the government, which has the only or major shareholder in these enterprises, would divest itself of its holding and pass it over to the Nigerian individuals, associations and organization, to own and manage in order to give the enterprises a new lease of life by turning them around.
Commercialization on it’s own simply means that the government, whilst retaining ownership, will hands off the funding and management of these enterprises, leaving them to tend for themselves with whatever expertise they may have with this arrangement.
