  • University Education and Poverty Dynamics Linkages in Nigeria: A State
           Level Analysis using Logit and Probit Models
    • Authors: OI Osarumwense
      Abstract: Poverty is said to exist when people lacks the means to satisfy their basic needs. Thus, improving the educational attainment of the population is an important requirement to reduce poverty amid the populace and foster development. However, Nigeria with her wealth; she still faces an enormous challenge in her effort to reduce poverty. The aim of this study is to give insight into the factors that affects or influences poverty inspite of attainment of University education in Nigeria. Percentage data from the thirty-six States of the country including the Federal Capital territory Abuja were explored. Results from the probit and Logit models revealed that of all variable analyzed, only percentage of household heads with poor educational background was significant. This connotes that a state with degree educational level of household heads is 0.2 percent more likely to be poor when compare to non-poor degree educational level of household head.

           Nigeria
    • Authors: BO Nwosu, KE Ojo
      Abstract: This study was designed to find out the strategies for fostering creativity among business education graduates in Nigeria. The instrument that was used to collect the data for this study was a questionnaire. The study sample comprised all the 71 Business Education lecturers in the universities and colleges of Education in Edo and Delta states in the South-South geo-political zone of Nigeria. Mean, standard deviation and t-test were the statistical tools used for the analysis of data. The findings of the study reveal that the respondents agreed that the 20 creativity skill-items are needed by business education graduates. Furthermore, the study also show a no significant difference between the mean rating of opinion of male and female business educators on the strategies for fostering creativity among business education graduates in Nigeria. Finally, some recommendations that are likely to enable both the pre-service and in-service business education graduates acquire relevant creativity skills designed to make them useful to themselves and the society at large have been proffered.

  • Rural Entrepreneurship in Nigeria: Lessons From Scientific Management
    • Authors: EN Udono, AA Usoro
      Abstract: This article focussed on the lessons that can be garnered from the tenets of Scientific Management. We undertook an X-ray of the tenets of Scientific Management and how these tenets can be adopted to ensure the success of emerging entrepreneurs in the rural areas. Many rural entrepreneurs fail within a short period of start-up, yet these entrepreneurs are a sure springboard for the development of these rural areas and nation as a whole. It was observed that many causes of the failure of these entrepreneurs could have been taken care of through the adoption of the tenets of Scientific management such as a sound knowledge of the business proposed and capacity building. Key recommendations were that: Government should provide an enabling environment for innovation and entrepreneurship; provide sources of capital and build a repository of information on businesses.
      Key words: Rural entrepreneurship, scientific management.

  • Stock Market Reactions to Fiscal Policy Shocks: Empirical Evidence From
           Nigeria
    • Authors: RO Urhoghide, J Ndubuisi
      Abstract: This study sets out to investigate the effect of fiscal policy on stock market performance in Nigeria. Specifically, the study examines if shocks in government expenditure and government debt affects stock market performance. The period of the study is from 1981-2012. Following the VAR estimates, the variance decomposition and impulse response analysis was employed to empirically show the effects of fiscal and policies on stock market performance. The result of this study reveals that market capitalization does not react immediately to fiscal policy but reacts with a significant time lag. This suggests that there is the need for effective fiscal policy coordination and increased efficiency of institutions that are expected to facilitate the fiscal policy execution. In addition, policy coordination between the central bank and the government is still relatively nascent. Consequently, the gains from policy coordination in the context of improving stock market performance could easily be eroded. Thus the study recommends that it will be useful to further strengthen the coordination arrangement by close monitoring of the impact of fiscal policies on the economy.

  • Emerging Religious Marketplace in Nigeria: A Quest for Interpretation
    • Authors: EO Duke
      Abstract: In contemporary Nigerian society, the evolving trends in Christian religious culture suggest that neoliberal (social) mind-set is influencing certain practices in many Churches. The objective of this paper is to examine how the above mentioned contemporary culture influences current religious landscape. The sociological concept of commodification was adopted as a way of ‘reading’ this religious context. The research methodology combines theoretical and ethnographic approaches to this study. The research findings show that neoliberal mind-set is influencing how religious commodification shapes the characteristics of Nigerian Christian marketplace.
      Key words: religion, marketplace, neoliberal mind-set and commodification.

  • Local Imagery, Proverbs and Metaphors in Chinua Achebe’s Anthills of the
           Savannah
    • Authors: MO Akpojisheri
      Abstract: Chinua Achebe in Anthills of the Savannah uses local imagery, simile, proverbs and metaphors which are capable of not only revealing African rich cultural heritage, but also helping in building the African child. In many African cultures, a feeling for language, for imagery and for the expression of abstract ideas through compressed and allusive phraseology, comes out particularly clearly in proverbs. The figurative quality of proverbs, local imagery, simile and metaphors are striking. This paper examines some snatches of Chinua Achebe’s variety of English in his urban novel Anthills of the Savannah. It is discovered that while handling contemporary issues of political corruption and dictatorship, Achebe blends expressions with local colour with the ones associated with educated characters. The paper explores the concept of context of situation associated with Halliday which emphasizes language use. In this model proposed by Halliday, three strata are identifiable: context of culture, context of situation and co-text. Findings from the analysis reveal that certain lexical items only make meaning within the context of the author’s native cultural values and environment.

  • The Idea of a Colony in Ifowodo’s The Oil Lamp
    • Authors: IT Inyabri
      Abstract: The Niger Delta region of Nigeria is one of the world’s most extensive wetlands. Defined by dense mangroves, rain forest, creeks and rivers that empty into the Atlantic, this region of rich alluvial soil is blessed with abundance of mineral resources, especially crude oil which has remained the foundation of Nigeria’s economy, a catalyst of national politics and a major foreign exchange earner for the country. However, a study of the region’s history reveals a peculiar sense of objectification traceable to slave merchandise in the 16th century through western colonial economy to the post-independent period. Using Ogaga Ifowodo’s poetry collection, The Oil Lamp, as a creative fulcrum, this paper exploits the theoretical grammar of Postcolonial Ecocriticism, Dialogism and Inter-textuality to interrogate the peculiar mode of objectification which the Niger Delta has faced through time and its ramifications in the history of Nigeria’s awkward federation.
      Key Words: Niger Delta poetry, Ogaga Ifowodo, Postcolonial Ecocriticism, Dialogism, Inter-textuality, Environment.

  • Youth Language as a Transnational Phenomenon: The Case of French in
           Nigeria
    • Authors: SF Nzuanke, AA Ajimase
      Abstract: This study sets out to enquire if the French language could be seen as a youth language in Nigeria. It adopts conventional approaches to youth language studies and carries out an empirical study on how the French language has fared amongst Nigerians since it became the country’s second official language in 1996. After an exhaustive review of related literature, the study adopts the sociological, sociolinguistic and transnational theories to explain the concept of youth language as a transnational phenomenon that has established itself in Africa through Western European influences. The study has two phases: a first phase to determine those who connect with French in Nigeria, involves a sample population of 80 persons, including 40 youth and 40 adults of both sexes and different nationalities from four of Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones (North Central, South East, South West, South South); and a second phase to determine the nature of French language speech patterns by the youth. This involves only the 40 youth. Using the quantitative and qualitative methods, this study makes a careful analysis of the questionnaire administered to the sample population. The findings reveal that most adults of 36 years and above in Nigeria show little or no interest in the French language, while most young people of between 12 and 35 years of age in Nigeria are so deeply attached to the French language that they have now adapted its use to suit their purpose as a distinctive communication code peculiar to them.

  • Sound Equipment Fabrication and Values in Nigerian Theatre Staging
           Experiences
    • Authors: C Apeh
      Abstract: The main points of this paper is to discover ways of fabricating sound and sound effects equipment for theatrical productions in Nigeria have become of essence since most educational theatres cannot afford western sound and sound effects equipment. Even when available, they are old fashioned, compared to the computerized nature of sound and sound effect in the 21st century Europe and American theatres. It is agreed that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) catalogue offers a wide range of sound and sound effects which are actually most frequently in demand, but in terms of timing (i.e. duration), the availability and thirdly, since theatre is part of the people’s culture, then it will be a prudent idea for the sound and sound effects selected for a production in Nigeria should be relevant to our contemporary environment and culture of the people where the play is produced. This study utilises library, field work as well as textual review to facilitate authentic actualisation of data gathered. The investigation concludes that Nigerian Technical Directors should discover ways of fabricating sound and sound effects equipment that would suit and enhance their theatre performances in the 21st century’s black theatre enclave.

  • Budgeting and Performing Arts Management in Nigeria: Valuated Concerns
    • Authors: E Essien
      Abstract: In spite of the many benefits accruable to organisations who engage in budgeting, performing arts establishments continue to treat same with levity. This work presents the two categories of performing arts establishments in Nigeria (government and privately owned) and outlines their budget practices. Terra Kulture is then presented as a case study of an outfit whose success and sustenance is attributable to good budgeting practices. The possible and estimated benefits from budgeting indicate why it pays to engage in effective budgeting.

  • The International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) Judgment Over the Bakassi
           Peninsula: A Model in the Resolution of African Boundary Disputes
    • Authors: MO Bonchuk
      Abstract: The imposition of colonial boundaries in Africa created serious problems for the postcolonial states. In most instances boundary problems have resulted to border skirmishes and conflicts that have made many African states enemies of themselves as such. These boundaries are not pure boundaries since they have divided related ethnic groups, the sea bed and natural features into two or more states foisting on them a new notion of citizenship. The paper submits that boundary conflicts between Nigeria and Cameroon have been fuelled by the presence of hydro-carbon deposits in the area. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) judgment has confirmed the Peninsula as being Cameroonian territory. It is indicated that this judgment be sustained by the two states in order to enable the Green Tree Agreement and the Mixed Commission to functionalise the decisions of the court. It is suggested that the option of war and litigation cannot resolve the impasse, rather, both states could benefit from the European Transboundary regionalism and convert their borders from irritants of war to bridges of development. This policy is in consonance with the Pan African idea of closer unity; including the Lagos Plan of Action, the African Economic Treaty Charter and the need to ground African economic integration on the realities of African history.
