The arguments against middlemen are however the inherent problems of the middlemen in Nigeria as stated thus: 

  1. That the middlemen usually hoard goods, thus creating artificial scarcity to such goods hoarded.
  2. That the wholesalers sometimes raise the price of goods above the producer’s normal price to make more profits.
  3. That the middlemen sometimes adulterate the goods in order to increase the quantity of their goods.
  4.  That the middlemen cannot boast of having adequate storage facilities.
  5. That there are inadequate provision of good roads, transport facilities and good communication network which complicates the activities of the middlemen in product distribution.
