Entrepreneurship is now becoming an important means and a valuable additional strategy to create jobs and improve livelihoods and economic independence around the world. Problems of unemployment as experienced in the past and present world of ours have contributed to all source of vices in our society such as political hooliganism, armed robbery, cultism, child trafficking, vandalism, kidnaping, ritual killing etc. The author of this research work presumed that the major constraint to entrepreneurship development, processes, entrepreneurship education is due to lack or shortage of relevant entrepreneurship information.  To address this major constraint that lead to slow entrepreneurship processes and development around the world especially in less development countries.
