Using primary data collection method, from the 150 questionnaires that were distributed 105 questionnaires was successfully returned but only 95 were useable for analysis yielding a 62.7% response rate. After gathering and entering the data in SPSS the results were analyzed using multiple regression analysis. Each variable was measured using 5-point Likert-scale.
