1.1 Background of the study
In order to have a described change in the learners good teaching must take place and to bring about good teaching, the teacher should be able to convey their message in the simplest, most convincing and practical way to the learner using available resources.
The effective teaching of any subject depends on the availability and utilization of suitable resources/instructional materials used in teaching easy and practical for the learners to understand the subject.
Nwije (1999) emphasized that resources/instructional materials are intrinsic part of the teaching and learning process and that achievement of the aims and objective of education depend primarily on the proper utilization of business resources.
These objects according to Umoh Mac and Nkume (1998) are regarded as instructional materials. They enhance real and meaningful teaching and learning. Appropriate instructional materials are imperative for implementing good quality education programmes. Unless adequate and quality facilities and superlative human resources are available quality of the programme will be reduced and learning will be dettered.
Materials for teaching business subject range from the common textbooks to more representative which the teacher use to communicate effectively with the student. These materials make learning more permanent and develop continuity of thought among the learner. Teaching materials and aids for the acquisition of required skill for business education should be on regular supply to school where business education subject are taught.
According to Umh-Mac Nkume (1998) state that many researchers on the availability of available resource carried out in Nigeria, in school offering Business Education Programme often revealed the presence of inadequate training facilities in the schools.
They further stressed that even the few available resources not being maintained. These are poor storage facilities for them and so they become non-functional.
However, Fadeye (2005) noted that it I the creative use of resources that will increase the probability of making the students learn and improve their performance of skills that are to be developed. BOZIMO and IKWUNADU (2002) grouped instructional materials into reacting materials, Auidio0viul materials and non-reaching materials
Business Education consist of aspect of Book Keeping shorthand, typewriting, commerce, office practice and computer which are integrated.
The question to ask is, who provides this resources materials to schools?
Eze (1991) in his contribution opines that instructional materials produced commercially play a key role in functional education in our schools that hen thee are understand our next alternative is in improvisation, provide the improvised equally delivers the goods
Fortunately, some sources of improvisation are available where around us by nature. Human re-arrangement of nature requires our initiative and creative to tap them fully towards the algainment and mastery of some skill.
Nigeria must realize that finding pragmatic solution to the problems be setting the growth and development, business education in the country should not be left to a few person but rather it should be seen as a collective, philanthropists, corporate bodies, government agencies churches and other religion organization etc must join hands and regard the task of solving of modern civilization,. In order to develop ad progress in business education there is need to emphasis the actual practical performance in business education.
(Morris 1968) said making and using teaching/learning resources is an important aspect of good teaching, even in classroom with few resources teachers can use locally available resources to improve pupils learning. Learning takes place in an exciting and active environments the mere use of those materials however, does not guarantee effective communication, nor effective teaching. It is their careful selection on and skillful handling of teaching/learning resources by the teacher that render their facilitating learning.
Therefore, this study is focused on the available of instructional materials/resource material for the teaching and learning of business education in secondary school

He emphasize the need for the provision of instructional materials in school Obi and Akume opine that, business education subject being a skilled area of student cannot be learnt by the student sitting and folding their arms and nodding their head. To give this training, the schools must be equipped with the necessary materials on which it intends to give, but rather it appears that most school that offer business education subject are not adequately equipped for the instructions. Resource materials are means of making teaching and learning process easy, more meaningful and understandable Uzoeqwu (2001), these materials are not just textbooks but it include machine, chalkboard and real objects, instructional, aid on the other hands are those that teacher prepare mainly to help him/her pass on the message easier and more effectively. These include cardboard drawings real object brought into the class for learners to physically see and touch (visual aids).
