Starting with a general recourse to study the small and medium scale enterprises at its root; the essay attempted to study institutions responsible for the growth of small and medium scale enterprises in Nigeria.

Regression analysis was done on the Gross Domestics Product (GDP) and small and medium scale enterprises and the findings shows that 5% level of significance, the constant term and the estimates of ISSP are both statistically significant.

On the basis results obtained, it is recommended that Nigeria must henceforth take bold steps with regards to our small and medium scale enterprises to ensure the growth of the sub-sector.

In Chapter Two, the frame work of the sectors will be developed and details about the certain theories on the sector and the definition of terms.

In Chapter Three, the method of collecting data will be highlighted. It will also entail the strategy and approach of the study.

Chapter Four, will deal with the analysis of research finding and the interpretation and the evaluation of data.
