Abstract

This study examines the extent to which traditional market days influence the development of long distance trade in Nigeria. Two rural markets were selected for this study and they are Orie-Umuosu Nsulu market in Abia state and Afo-Igwe market in Anambra state. 100 copies of research instrument were distributed in each of the markets under study and our data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation and Linear Regression. Our findings show a significant relationship existing between traditional market days and long distance trade. The study further recommends a reawakening of the concept of history in every area of learning in Nigeria, both at the primary, secondary and tertiary institutions of learning as well as immortalizing past heroes who played significant roles in long distance trade in time past.
