(X value = 89.p-valuable 0.0000 < 0.05)., absence of support agencies has a significant effect on efficiency of SMEs in Enugu metropolis (X value = 13.p-valuable 0.0000 < 0.05). The writer concluded that lack of government support has a significant but not positive effect on the sustainability of SMEs in the Enugu metropolis, Duty drawback scheme should be implemented among SMEs in Nigeria.
