ABSTRACT

Data were collected through Primary and Secondary sources. In all 80 questionnaires were sent out and a total of 42 were received back as at the time of data analysis. The data collected was analyzed through the use of simple percentages while the hypothesis was tested using chi-square. The analysis revealed that most Nigeria shareholders lack the knowledge of accounting and furthermore do not give corporate disclosures to experts for analysis and advice. It was also revealed that Nigerian shareholders were found not to be receiving corporate disclosures as stipulated under section 344 of CAMA 1990. The researcher recommended that corporate disclosure should be backed up with narrations which will contribute to the overall picture and colouring the view otherwise given by the statement. The narrative solutions will therefore require a fairly detailed commentary on all the major events affecting the company during the year and on its progress since the beginning of the period supplemented by pieces of accounting information.
