The stndy employed stratified, simple random and purposive sampling techniques to draw representative samples and a sample size of 32 respondents was determined fi"om a population of 35 members using Krejcie and Morgan table. Closes-ended questionnaires with eight point Iikert scale were used to obtain response. During this research data was carefully collected, classified and analyzed using frequency tables and data was summarized using graphs and charts. The findings of the study revealed that there is a relationship between internal control and financial performance.
