  • Quest for Recognition and Freedom: An Archetypal Study of Helon
           Habila's Oil on Water
    • Authors: Chibuzo Onunkwo, Ejiofor Udu Nwogwu, Theodora Ojiakor
      Abstract: Oil on Water is Helon Habilla's third novel, published in 2010. It has, like his other works, attracted a handful of attention ranging from reviews, commentaries to critical essays. Much of this attention is sociologically and eco-critically oriented, in terms of the truth of environmental degradation in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria and the accompanying restive activities by youths of the region. This essay seeks to take a different approach at studying the text. It proposes, contrary to other approaches, to look at the text at the mythic level, that is, the level where literature stands out from not-literature. Precisely, it attempts to discuss the novel as a quest narrative using archetypal criticism as the theoretical frame. This theoretical approach differs from other approaches that have been used in the study of this novel in that it is essentially a text oriented approach.

  • Community Involvement in the Development of Secondary Schools in Jos –
           South Local Government Area
    • Authors: Cecilia Chinwe Nwufo, Enoch Ibu Otor
      Abstract: Education which is the bedrock of any meaningful development in an enlightened society has been one of the areas the government is not giving priority to at the Federal, State and Local Government Levels. It is against this background that the community, that is, other agencies and or group of individuals’ aside the government have been given the free hand to make contributions towards education especially at the secondary school level, based on some given guidelines. In the light of this, this research asks if the communities are involved in secondary education'. What area(s) are the communities involved and how have their involvement made better impact on the academic performances of secondary school education' The study employs a survey research design where a sample of schools were selected and studied, the result used to represent the variable in all the Secondary Schools in Jos-South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

  • Rethinking Some Cultural Practices that Affect the Rights of Women and
           Children in Nigeria
    • Authors: Cecilia Chinwe Nwufo, Enoch Ibu Otor
      Abstract: Human Rights have been identified as encompassing and embracing the rights of all humans which are entitled to. These rights, amongst others, include civil and political rights such as the right to life and liberty, dignity, equality before the law and freedom of expression. Others are those of the right to work, the right to education, participation in culture and economic rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) affirms the universal recognition of the inherent dignity, equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. Thus, both men and women are entitled, on equal footing, to full protection of their rights and freedom because they are human beings. This research therefore examines the role of customary laws and their impacts on women and children’s rights in Nigeria - a developing country, since according to available information, it is in these regions that women’s rights are mostly violated and there is an urgent need for action to eliminate such practices. The doctrinal research method has been adopted to achieve the goal of this research and we conclude with some far reaching suggestions and recommendations for implementationKeywords: Cultural Practices, Widowhood, Right of Women and Nigeria

  • Maternal Love, Social and Political Activism as Vehicles of Self Assertion
           in the Poetry of Langston Hughes
    • Authors: Ene Edem Ekpo
      Abstract: This paper investigates the place of maternal love in the formation of the African American self and how that self has evolved from the subservient racial hegemonic American society. It is an interrogation of the role of the African American woman in Afro futuristic dream of equality and the assertion of a distinct African American self with all its uniqueness. The essay also interrogates the socio political impulses in the poetry of Langston Hughes and how these impulses contribute to the assertion of the black American distinct self in the American society. Langston Hughes’ poetry carries feminist impulses that are interpreted to be the basis for the African American communal society. The significance of this paper lies in the fact that it will unravel how the African American woman’s love for her children serves as a catalyst for the socio political activism of the entire black race and how this ultimately lead to the assertion of the black self. The paper adopts a psychoanalytical and feminist position as theoretical frameworks in the analysis of the selected poems of the poet. The strand of feminism adopted here is motherism. Through qualitative research methodology, the paper submits that the role of maternal love cannot be ruled out in the socio political activism that will bring to reality the afrofuturistic dream of the entire black race in American society.
      Key words: Maternal love, Racial hegemony, Socio-political activism, Afrofuturism, Self assertion.

  • Christian idiom and style in Abam Arikpo’s The womankind of
    • Authors: Godwin Oko Ushie, Grace Omonoseh
      Abstract: Abam Arikpo, drawing heavily from the allusions of Christianity, nay the Christian religious liet motif of humility, meekness and long suffering, in a rather esoteric language, advocates the adoption of Christ-like qualities by people in all spheres of life and in all institutions - be it politics, religion, judiciary or traditional society. It is this quintessence of humanity and meekness that is, most times, pejoratively called feminity in popular macho idiom, hence the poet celebrates and eulogises “the womankind of man” and wishes that the feminine virtues, which are not popular in a male dominated society be adopted in the world to make it a better place. The paper intertextualizes this poetry collection and the Christian’s holy book, The Holy Bible; another macrotext, paying close attention to language use and reaches the conclusion that both the Christian virtue and idiom, on the one hand, and the social milieu that favours patriarchal idiom, on the other, have immensely influenced the thematic concern and style of this poetry
      Keywords: Allusions of Christianity, Christian idiom, style, social milieu, intertextuality.

  • The Dynamics of Economism and Human Traffficking in Chika Unigwe’s On
           Black Sisters’ Street and Ifeoma Chinwuba’s Merchants of Flesh
    • Authors: Anthony Ebebe Eyang, Augustine Edung
      Abstract: This paper examines the reprehensible activity of human trafficking and its creative representation in the emerging literary repertoire of the current dispensation. Unigwe’s On Black Sisters’ street and Chinwuba’s Merchants of Flesh present an uncensored account of the evils involved in the trading of humans for any form of sexual or physical exploitation at the detriment of the victims’ lives, careers and dreams. Both novels are analytically critiqued with the New Historical approach to criticism as well as with significant allusions to Marxism and Feminism. The authors here, through an artistic handling of the subject of trafficking, have succeeded in drawing attention to the fact that human trafficking leaves the victims physically, psychologically and emotionally ruined. As such, they have fashioned both texts to canvass for all and sundry to put an immediate end to this societal menace.

  • Utilitarianism as a Veritable Vehicle for the Promotion of a Just Society
    • Authors: Ephraim A. Ikegbu, Francis I. Diana-Abasi
      Abstract: Utilitarianism as an abstract ethical theory holds that good is achieved when the aggregate of pleasure is greater than the aggregate of pain. For the utilitarians, an act is good if it leads to the greatest happiness of the greatest number of people. A society is said to be just and good when its citizens are happy. A just and happy society is an ideal society. Every citizen desires the ideal society and for this to be achieved, scholars have suggested the application of various ethical theories. This paper, in the same connection, seeks to analyze and articulate the prospects of utilitarianism as a veritable tool for the promotion of a just society. Utilitarianism is sensitive to human nature and human beings do fundamentally desire happiness. The social, economic and political progress of every society must seek the happiness of its citizenry. This essay states that utilitarianism is a fundamental vehicle of transformation in a democratic society. It provides for society the standard with which to measure the progress and prosperity of a State. And as a concept of justice, it ensures equitable distribution of scarce resources to the greatest number of people. This practice is achievable if friendly policies and result-oriented programmes are rolled out for the people by the managers of the State. The State’s leadership policies cannot be evidently obeyed if the citizenry and strong followership are not connected. A strong followership is achievable in leadership if the greatest number of the population is protected in line with the afrioxiological concepts of gidi gidi bu ugwu eze and onye aghala nwanneya.KEY WORDS: Utilitarianism, Justice, Society, Policy, Happiness.

  • A Comparative Analysis of Socialists and Capitalists Economies
    • Authors: Dave Ude Ugwu, Finian Igbede Moko
      Abstract: The current essay is a comparative analysis of two of the predominant economic and political ideologies in the current ‘one world system’. This ‘one world system’ is a 21st century ‘global world’ controlled by capitalism, socialism and a mixture of both. From America’s example of capitalist economy and politics, China’s capitalist’s, socialists and communists’ mixed-system; and from North Korea’s example of a purely communists’ state, the current essay has argued for the illusiveness of attempting to eliminate either a communist, a feudal, a fascist or a socialist’s economy, without ultimately having to replace same with a ‘mixed world system’ as it is the case with the current ‘global system’ dictated completely by capitalism, socialism and to some extent communism. The essay attempts to point this out for ‘world policy makers’ in three contemporary examples with America, China and North Korea. Contrary to opposing views of thinkers, such Karl Marx and related academicians who condemn capitalism while down-playing socialism in favour of communism, the current essay has argued for the needfulness of all three of these in the creation and sustenance of the current ‘world system’. The essay is a true highlight to the ‘world’s policy makers’ the fact that the creation of an ‘economic order’ with a fair blend between capitalists’, socialists’ and communists’ economies, as it is the case today with the current ‘global world system’, is largely portentous of creating a greater ‘world system’ without the G8 and other robust economies having to employ capitalism or socialism or communism or a mixture of them as political and economic tool for ‘economic neo-colonialism’.
      Key words: capitalism, socialism, economic systems, comparative study.

  • Marxism and the Theoretical Underpinnings of the Bolshevic Revolution and
           other Global Communist Revolutions
    • Authors: Dave Ude Ugwu, Finian Igbede Moko
      Abstract: Marxism has never been a loss to society. Although it has its shortcomings, its successes were widely recorded in the 20th century communist resolutions of different countries including the Bolshevik revolution of 1918 in Russia, which turned Tsarist Russia into a communist state. Research has identified in Marxism, a useful political strength in an aggrieved masses, the unforgivable hatred of victims of capitalism for the system and an unwavering passion in an oppressed class for change, as some of the theoretical underpinnings behind all communist revolutions. This essay discusses Marxism while highlighting some theoretical underpinnings of the Bolshevik revolution of 1918 and other global communist revolutions in the world.

  • Capitalism and the New World Order of the 21st Century Age
    • Authors: Dave Ude Ugwu, Finian Igbede Moko
      Abstract: Western-type capitalism has always found a way of pestering itself around nations of the world, which have been rendered poor by global ideologies, such as; communism, feudalism, primitive and modern-day socialism. The Post-Cold War Capitalists’-based Vision here being called a ‘New World Order’, especially, in its current practices, as it has been imposed on the rest of the world by the G8 nations and assisted by the World Bank, IMF, United Nations, WTO and NATO, is a 21st Century Imperialist Rule constantly being communicated to the rest of society by the super-rich nations of the world. It is a 21st Century G8 Nations and American-Type of Colonial Imperialism, in which capitalism is constantly being used by the super-rich nations of the world to make poor nations feel extremely guilty for the same global poverty created by these super-rich nations. The current essay contends that while the current ‘New World Order’ is a wonderful idea on the pages papers, in its day-to-day application, it has remained nothing less than an American-bred Capitalists’ Vision of the society; a Western World kind of Imperialism and a barrage of political conspiracies by the United States of America, which must not be left to be, but which must be kept under constant check by the G8 nations as a higher political platform.

  • The Plight of Polygamists in Contemporary African Society
    • Authors: Sunday Igwe Ukoha
      Abstract: Attempts have been made by scholars of diverse disciplines to give a vivid picture of what polygamy looks like. Such disciplines include; history, church history, Archaeology, Anthropology, cultural studies, theology, Islamic studies and so on. They have put up brilliant arguments for and against polygamy. This essay is an attempt to discuss polygamy and to highlight its plights among contemporary Christian African communities from a purely African perspective.

  • The Contemporary Nigerian Theatre Practitioner in Search of Market: The
           New Media to the Rescue
    • Authors: Rasaki Ojo Bakare, Bifátife Olufemi Adeseye, Olusola Kayode Balogun
      Abstract: The theatre practitioner, in Nigeria and in most parts of Africa, is today faced with the challenges of limited funding and space to market his art. He or she is also confronted with the task of raising and sustaining a true professional group that can turn his art into a money spinning venture, especially with the overwhelming presence of the new media. Using Play Theory of Mass Communication as its framework, this paper examines the position of the theatre artiste/practitioner in the context of Information Communication and Technology (ICT) and new media. It first attempts a study of the ‘pre-independence’ practitioners of theatre and drama as professionals, followed by the apathy and misfortune that characterised the sector in the ‘post-independence’ era. The paper discovers that while the practitioners in the ‘pre independence’ era sustained theatre as business and art, the reverse is the case in the ‘post-independence’ era, owing largely to the overriding influence of the new media. The paper concludes that for the contemporary theatre practitioner to succeed, he or she must be well versed in the popular mode of stage drama, and must equally learn how to incorporate the new media into his or her practice. A deficiency in either of the two above may hamper the growth and substance of the theatre profession and reduce the marketability of the art form generally.Keywords: Popular African Theatre Mode, Professionalism, New Media, Contemporary Theatre Practice, Marketability.

  • The Roles of Yoruba Songs on Pregnancy, Labour and Baby Care in Antenatal
           and Postnatal Clinic in Southwestern Nigerian Hospitals
    • Authors: Stephen Titus Olusegun
      Abstract: Several studies have been conducted on music and medical discourse especially musical discourse in the hospital. These have lead to several works on music and medical discourse which is commonly regarded as medical ethnomusicology. However, medical ethnomusicology studies particularly used as part of medical literacy in antenatal and post natal clinic are still largely unavailable. This paper therefore, examines the roles of Yoruba health related songs on pregnancy, labour, delivery and baby care during the health literacy classes in selected hospitals in southwestern Nigeria. Interviews, participant observation, cultural history and lyrical analysis of the recorded songs during such training were done. Based on health belief and transformative musicology theories the paper suggests that Yoruba songs used during health literacy classes is very functional, been rooted in socio-cultural life of Yoruba people. It serves as education, caution, entertainment, encouragements and as psychological therapy for the foutos, children, pregnant women, and nursing mothers.
      Keywords: Yoruba Songs, Structure, Antenatal Clinic, Functions, Pregnant women, Nursing Mothers
