  • Language Civility, Immediacy and Peace Valence among Nigerian University
    • Authors: Alexander Essien Timothy, Vincent Ugah Uguma
      Abstract: The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 seeks, in part, to “promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development ….” Since the university is a vital component of any society, promoting peace, the university can have a ripple effect on the larger Nigerian society. In addition, since interactions in the university, as in all human societies, are language driven, the language-based negotiations in the university can produce either harmony or discord. This study, thus, examined students' perception of university lecturers' immediacy and civility as they relate to peace valence of lecturers communication. Data were collected from 880 undergraduates from three federal universities in South-South geopolitical zone of Nigeria, using a structured questionnaire. Pearsonian correlational analyses revealed low to moderate positive relationships between lecturers’ immediacy, civility, and perceived peace valence of their communication.
      Keywords: language, peace, valence, immediacy, civility, communication.

  • Fostering Cognitive Collaboration for Effective Instruction in English
           Language Classrooms in Nigeria
    • Authors: Gloria Ojo
      Abstract: One of the greatest challenges for English language teachers in Nigerian secondary schools is how to prepare students to meet the competitive demands of life in the 21st century. On one hand, the student has to acquire the skills of interpreting and using information in a speed-driven world of communication. On the other hand, the teacher is faced with poor infrastructure and lack of materials which make it difficult for the teaching –learning process. Faced with the persistent reality of falling standards of education, the situation demands that there be a paradigm shift in the teaching and learning strategies of the English language. In Nigeria as in many other countries, proficiency in English is a major determinant of success across the curriculum and in the world of work. The paper posits that this seemingly impossible task can be overcome by fostering cognitive collaboration in collaborative learning groups when teaching the skills of English language. This will motivate students towards successful learning and achievement in literacy and English. It will also allow teachers to pool their own expertise and develop co-teaching strategies that will derive further benefits for their English language learners.
      Key words: cognitive collaboration, collaborative/ cooperative learning, co-teaching strategies

  • Graduate Unemployment in Nigeria: Implications for National Development
    • Authors: Cletus Ikechukwu Anah, Adaugo Nwosu, Nkiru Ezeji
      Abstract: It is common knowledge that the level of unemployment in Nigeria has continued to rise over the years. It is therefore worrisome that even graduates of tertiary institutions considered as skilled manpower have been bitten by this unemployment bug. However, studies on the subject matter have remained historic in their approaches. They have concentrated on such internal factors as failed government policies, economic recession and faulty planning to explicate the widespread incidence and prolonged manifestation of unemployment in Nigeria. These studies have failed to locate the sources. and by extension, the cause(s) of unemployment in Nigeria. This paper is a departure from the above stated trend. Noting that graduate unemployment is a recent phenomenon in Nigeria, this paper undertakes a historic examination of its occurrence by employing the political economy paradigm, which critically examines the role of the international financial institutions in determining to a large extent, the poor productive capacity of Nigeria. This study posits that it is this poor productive capacity that breeds unemployment even at the graduate level in Nigeria. It is therefore advocated that local raw materials be put into intensive use to increase production in Nigeria in line with the guidelines and measures enunciated by the Lagos Plan of Action (LPA). This, it is believed, will resuscitate the Nigerian economy and create employment.

  • The Role of Borrowed Words in Language Development: the Case of Ejagham
           and English
    • Authors: Roseline Ntui Egbe, Ini-Mbom James Akpan
      Abstract: Language is essentially a medium of communication. It is a universal human phenomenon. With it we communicate our ideas, thoughts, emotions and messages. A language has to have the capability to express these phenomena. Sometimes, however, a language does not possess all the words necessary for it to capture all its experiences. At such times, it has to borrow words and expressions from other languages that come in contact with it. Such borrowed items help in enriching, expanding and developing the language. This paper, a purely descriptive work, considers the role of borrowed words in the development of the Ejagham language. Words which came with the English language and for which Ejagham had no equivalent expressions were borrowed from English in order to express the new experiences that came with the coming of the British to Nigeria and that has contributed to the development of the language. We hereby recommend that borrowed words should be used in upgrading and updating the Ejagham language.

  • Family and the Bildungsroman Tradition in Maya Angelou’s I Know Why The
           Caged Bird Sings and Chimamanda Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus.
    • Authors: Ima Usen Emmanuel
      Abstract: The paper examines family and the bildungsroman process in Maya Angelou’s I know Why the Caged Bird Sings and Chimamanda Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus. The study is carried out mainly through Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalytical critical theory. The paper notes that the nuclear family’s responsibility at grooming the child (positively or negatively) is a choice, and that bildungsroman is a type of novel that is concerned with education, growth and maturity of a young protagonist from innocence to adulthood. Both protagonists are displaced and estranged from the parents at their pre-Oedipal periods. And because the children did not separate successfully from their primary unity with the parents, they could not initially build self-boundaries and appropriate mental representations. Consequently, Maya and Kambili in Caged Bird and Purple Hibiscusrespectively, became cold, distant and frustrated. They therefore encountered challenges in their new milieus: Maya’s natural instinct for a father-figure, at the stage of Oedipus complex lures her into being raped by Mr. Freeman. Kambili on the other hand, goes through introjections; she begins to split her father into binary oppositions of good and evil and not just the aptness she previously envisaged. The ego compels her to flee from the initial relationship with her father that threatened to overwhelm her fragile self-boundaries. Both protagonists are controlled by the id as they yearn for fusion with objects that never fully satisfied their cravings: Maya’s desire for sexual intercourse with an adolescent boy results in teenage pregnancy, and similarly, Kambili aspiration to covet, dominate and possess Rev. Father Amadi but for his Priesthood, wrecks her emotionally. Finally both protagonists ruled by the superego and guided by Momma and Aunty Ifeoma, in Caged Bird and Purple Hibiscus, enter their symbolic orders and pass into adult gender identities to take responsibilities for themselves and within their societies. The paper recommends that the family unit which is the closest of human relationships should be guarded jealously to forgo divorce and violence, in other to save the future generations from the uncanny and traumatic situations so that children can enter their symbolic orders in peace and harmony and affect humanity optimistically.Key Words: Id, Ego, Super-ego, Pre-Oedipal periods, Fragile self-boundaries.

  • Art Beyond Facial Value: of Metaphorization and Functionality of Sexual
           Scenes in Selected Nigerian Short Stories in the Cyberspace
    • Authors: Ojima Sunday Nathaniel, Onyekachi Peter Onuoha
      Abstract: This paper sets out to examine selected short stories published in digital media as expression of twenty first century youth culture with the exploration of sexual scenes as a paradigm. Digital literature is a relatively new type of text which has created a fluid space for digital interactions enabling writers to express themselves informally using sexual scenes as motif. The digital media platform offers new systems and cultures of expression which challenge the pre-existing modes and forms of literature of the hard text captured mainly in the features of immediacy. Immediacy in cyberspace constitutes rebellion in digital literature and also represents literary creativity. This type of literature uses informal language and undisguised representation of sex as a part of its distinguishing features. The aim of this paper therefore is to explicate the functionality of sexual scenes in digital literature and how it represents social norms that constitute expressions of dissent to conventional portrayal of sexual scenes in print literature using remediation as the theoretical framework.

  • Democratising Political Powers through Locke’s Doctrine of
    • Authors: Finian Igbede Moko, Francis Ibe Mogu
      Abstract: This essay is an attempt at democratizing, if not completely eliminating contemporary abuses of ‘political powers’ by adopting Locke’s teachings on ‘prerogative powers’ for this purpose. While drawing supportive arguments from other academic sources, the essay discusses Locke’s ‘doctrine of prerogative powers’, specifically attention to some primitive (animalistic) elements of political power, such as; immunity, extra-constitutionality, executive veto, extra-legality and the ‘sacred cow syndrome’, as pliable tools whenever leaders misuse power . The essay contends that whenever there is high-handedness of leaders in a democratic nation, such a state is either a ‘despotic family monarchy’ which has been disguised as a ‘democracy’; or under normal circumstances, there is an abusive use of most, if not all of the primitive (untamed) elements of political power. The essay is not only an attempt to mentor political leaders after Locke’s teachings as they are encapsulated in his ‘doctrine of prerogative’; It further suggest that whatever goes round comes round; hence, if leaders must rule and escape endless attacks from their subjects, then, the task is for leaders to re-model their views on political powers, including their ‘prerogative powers’; no longer as their individual rights but as the ‘federative powers’ of the people; aware that after all, legitimate sovereignty belongs to the people.

  • Asouzu’s Complementary Ontology as a Foundation for a Viable Ethic
           of the Environment
    • Authors: Oduora Okpokam Asuo, Solomon Kingsley
      Abstract: This paper on “Asouzu’s Complementary Ontology as a foundation for a viable Ethic of the Environment”, posits that an ethic of the environment can be seen as viable if it considers the whole of reality as ontologically relevant. This point of view would free environmental ethics of anthropocentric bias and its attendant consequences while at the same time ensuring the protection and preservation of all being and species, not from sympathy, but as members of a holistic picture of reality. This position is inherent in Asouzu’s complementary ontology and Ibuanyidanda philosophy, hence the need to adopt it as a viable foundation for an ethic of the environment. This conclusion is arrived at by a critical analysis of diverse environmental and ethical positions.
      Keywords: Ibuanyidanda, complementary ontology, environmental ethics.

  • The Relevance of Pusey’s Eirenicon Today: Intercommunion between
           Anglicans and Roman Catholics
    • Authors: Emmanuel Orok Duke
      Abstract: This paper investigates how Edward Pusey, a nineteenth century Anglican clergy and scholar responded to Edward Manning’s claim that the Church of England is not an authentic church. This led the former to write his Eirenicon, as an intellectual justification and a response to apostolicity and catholicity of the Anglican faith. Eirenicon is an example in rigorous dialogue on religious faith claims. The ecumenical rapprochement suggested by Pusey is very insightful: emphasis on the elements that unites Roman Catholics and Anglicans as rooted in traditions of the Apostolic Church. After more than 152 years, this work seeks for the relevance of Pusey’s Eirenicon in contemporary Roman Catholic–Anglican faith relationship.

  • Video Film Piracy in Nigeria: Interfacing to Integrate the Pirate
    • Authors: Edet Essien
      Abstract: One of the worst nightmares of the arts is piracy. It is a single variable that has dealt a serious blow on the development of the arts including the video film industry in Nigeria. Measures, predominantly legislation and enforcement have been taken to up-root the canker worm to no avail. This work examines existing measures for curbing piracy, how to strengthen them and seeks the possibility of integrating and making the pirate part and working for the system. It recommends the adoption of market segmentation policy in integrating the pirate, emphasises the run of video films in cinemas, halls etc before they go into the market and calls for a better synergy between producers and marketers among others.
