Ilorin, kwara state Nigeria. The study made use of primary data obtained from 100 

respondents from Ilorin West Local Government in kwara state through the copies of

formulate and establish sound economic policies having in mind to involve the informal 

sector as an agent of change and promotion of the social economic development, it would 

go a long way in providing more employment opportunities.
