From the Paper:

"Another challenge for the business environment belongs to the demographic category and refers to the reduced life expectancy of the population - only 46 years. In the highly developed western economies, a 46 years old employee is a useful addition to an organization as he is highly trained and skilled and the investments in training him are minimal, while the benefits are highly increased. In Nigeria on the other hand, employees may well not even reach the age of 46. A second demographic challenge is posed by the very high risk of contracting an infectious disease. This is threatening for all employees, as well as potentially foreign manager/ owner and increased absenteeism due to infectious disease generate increased financial loses.
"In terms of a structure of the Nigerian business environment, it becomes obvious that the country is showing a deficit relative to small and medium size enterprises. The reasons why SMEs fail to succeed in this environment generally revolve around denaturized public perceptions over their activities, political instability, economic turmoil or the failure of the national authorities to support these types of organizations. Additionally, poor infrastructure, political corruption and an uneven distribution of natural and human made resources also constitute reasons why the SME community plays a reduced role within Nigerian business (Mumbula, 2002)."
