  • Christian mission agencies and the question of slavery in German Cameroon,

    • Authors: Michael Kpughe Lang
      Abstract: Mission agencies claimed to exhibit enlightenment motifs of progress, liberty, civilization and unity of humanity. This amounted to a paradoxical association between the mission agencies and the anti-slavery campaign in Africa like elsewhere. In German Cameroon, Catholic and Protestant missions engaged in the battle against slavery, while at the same time colluding with the colonial government to perpetuate it in transformed ways. Expectedly, as German missions took measures to surmount slavery, they surprisingly peddled its perpetuation in diverse ways. This paper critiqued the involvement of mission agencies in the campaign against slavery in German Cameroon from 1884 when Germany annexed the territory to 1916 when her imperial rule was forcibly terminated. It opened with an introductory background that contextualizes the mission-slavery question connection. This is followed by an examination of the efforts of the missions in fighting slavery in Cameroon. The paper further discussed missions’ dependence on indigenous converts in carrying out their numerous activities, along with their complicity with the colonial government in enslaving and exploiting Cameroonians in ways that were beneficial to the German colonial enterprise. The paper therefore submitted that German missions’ battle against slavery was bedevilled by the fact that they gave significant importance to the imperial designs of their government, with little commitment to improving the wellbeing of Cameroonians. Little wonder colonial and missionization exploitation which is inseparable from the modern understanding of slavery was at its highest during the German era.Keywords: German Cameroon, German missions, slavery

  • Impact of published articles on trade liberalization from 1980-2015: a
           bibliometric study

    • Authors: Murtala Muhammad, Nader Ale Ebrahim, Gold Lola Kafilah, Abubakar Ahmed
      Abstract: In this research, the viable impact of scholarly research on trade liberalisation by a bibliometric approach from 1980-2015 is examined. The paper analysed 886 academic articles extracted from the ISI Web of Science Core Collection database. Trade liberalisation research is notably interdisciplinary, with articles principally in journals for economics, international relations, and planning development. This study found that the field became evidently viable with more than ten articles per year from 1990 – 2015. The proportion of articles with at least one citation from 1980 – 2015 is 56.43%. The top 100 articles have a minimum of 25 citations. Given this, this study created a citation matrix trend to determine two decade’s total citation per year. The data are statistically analysed. Furthermore, the study produced a cloud map showing the Web of Science research categories. Based on the results of this study, insight into citation forecast for future research to advance knowledge on trade liberalisation is provided.Keywords: Article word count, citation matrix, publication trends, trade liberalisation, Web of Science

  • Burial rites for Ken Saro-Wiwa and the Ogoni Nine: implications for modern

    • Authors: Lazarus Baribiae Saale
      Abstract: This study examined the burial rites given to the ‘Ogoni Nine’ activists from the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. The study adopted the anthropological, philosophical and sociological approaches. Findings from the study revealed that the ‘Ogoni Nine’ include Ken Saro-Wiwa, Saturday Dobee, Nordu Eawo, Daniel Gbooko, Paul Levera, Felix Nuate, Baribor Bera, Barinem Kobel and John Kpuine who were executed by hanging by the military government of General Sani Abacha in 1995. These were Ogoni heroes who fought and died for the Ogoni struggle for survival in Nigeria. The Ogoni were not happy with both the multi-national oil company (Shell – SPDC) and the Federal Government of Nigeria of the careless, tormenting and humiliating ways the corpses of these heroes were handled at death and buried at the Port Harcourt cemetery outside Ogoni land. In Ogoni tradition, the type of burial given to these activists was meant for those who died a bad death and not for heroes such as the Ogoni nine who died in the struggle for survival of their people. Important aspects of the rites accorded, good death at burial were denied them. Traditional burial was organised for these Ogoni heroes by their people to retrieve, transform and purify their bodies and souls from the abode of evil forces. In the Ogoni traditional religion, it is a taboo and a thing that attracts bad omen to society of the living if the heads of their heroes are buried outside or left at the war front away from home. This belief and practices amongst others informed the Ogonis’ demand for a monument that will stand in memories of them to be constructed in Ogoni land.

  • Xenophobic activities and its impact on African peace and development

    • Authors: Goddey Wilson
      Abstract: Africa is noted for peaceful coexistence and cooperation among member states in the pursuit of development of both the citizens and the continent. However, in recent time, African peace and development is threatened by xenophobic activities, thereby giving Africa a negative image in the international system. This prompts our study, which is aimed at identifying the causes of xenophobic activities in Africa, and examining its impacts on African peace and development. Documentary sources were used to generate data for the study and content analysis used to interpret the data. Bio-cultural theory is the framework used to give theoretical explanations to xenophobic activities in Africa. The study’s findings indicated that there are issues of xenophobic activities in different African States at different times, and such activities have significant impact on African peace and development. The study made advances on the modalities to manage xenophobic activities in Africa.Keywords: Violence, activities, development, peace, xenophobia

  • Benefits derived from recreation and sport leisure that motivate

    • Authors: Emeka Anaza
      Abstract: Using the constraints-effects mitigation model, this study explored the benefits of recreation and sport leisure activities that motivate women’s participation. While there are numerous studies that have investigated factors that motivate women’s leisure participation and leisure constraints in Europe and the United States, there are less empirical studies conducted in sub-Saharan Africa. A lack of comparable studies limits our understanding of leisure participation in Africa, but more importantly mandates further investigations within an African context. Applying a phenomenological qualitative approach, nineteen women were studied. The findings showed that Nigerian women are motivated to participate in recreation and sport leisure activities by health-related and social interaction benefits.Keywords: Recreation, Sport, Leisure, Activities, Women, Nigeria

  • Determinants of condom use among currently married men in Zambia

    • Authors: Kusathan Thankian, S.O.C. Mwaba, J Jere-Folotiya, G Hapunda, A.J. Menon
      Abstract: HIV is one of the leading health threats and cause of morbidity and mortality in Zambia. Among many preventive measures, condom use is the most effective methods of preventing HIV. The aim of this study was to investigate factors associated with condom use among currently married men in Zambia. Secondary data from the 2013 Zambia Demographic Health Survey was used. Results from binary logistic regression analysis showed that condom use is associated with being young (β = -0.71, p < 0.001), being rich (β = 0.25, p < 0.05), paying for sex (β = 0.42, p < 0.001), perceiving risk of contracting HIV (β = 0.38, p < 0.001), and believing in the efficacy of condom use as a protective measure against HIV (β = 0.24, p < 0.01). Condom use in Zambia is associated with socio-demographic characteristics and habits of adult males. Therefore, prevention measures aimed at increased the use of male condoms should integrate social demographic characteristics and habits of adult males to be effective.Keywords: Condom use, married men, determinants, Zambia

  • Impact of Radio Kogi’s flood disaster awareness campaign on residents of
           Ibaji Local Government Area of Kogi State, Nigeria

    • Authors: Gabriel Alhassan Ottah
      Abstract: A major natural disaster that occurred in Nigeria in 2012 was the flooding of many places, including Ibaji Local Government Area of Kogi State. The flood ravaged the area, destroying food and property; and rendering the people homeless. Before, during and after the flood, Radio Kogi Lokoja had carried awareness and warning messages asking those residing by the River Niger bank to relocate. This study sought to ascertain the impact of the warning on the residents of Ibaji. I adopted survey design, using the questionnaire as the instrument for data collection. Pictorial description was also used to show the flooded area. A sample of 622 was derived from the population (127,572), using Cochran formula. 517 of the questionnaire were returned and used. It was found that all the people (100%) listened to radio. Majority (86.7%) listened to the flood disaster warning on Radio Kogi, but 60% of the residents did not relocate out of the flood. While some (44.7) said the impact of the message was average, others (25.7%) said it was too weak to cause an effect. Majority of the respondents (45.6%) felt that Radio Kogi should have adopted a communication strategy that would change people’s behaviour and attitude. It was concluded that the people of Ibaji are well exposed to Radio Kogi, but the 2012 flood disaster awareness did not create the needed impact on them. It was therefore recommended among other things that radio content creators should consider the backgrounds of the people before adopting a communication strategy that makes impact. Government should use other means of information dissemination on issues that border on disaster and the social-cultural dispositions of the people. Instead on announcing only on radio, government could dispatch a team of experts to flood-prone communities with concrete and live evidence of the negative effects of the flood. Through behaviour change communication approach, audiences would be better informed to take better actions.Keywords: Awareness, flood disaster, Radio Kogi, Ibaji, warning

  • Relevance of music in social stability and security challenges in Nigeria

    • Authors: Ebele V. Ojukwu
      Abstract: In the wake of the current security challenges and social instability in Nigeria today, there is a great need to employ a broad range of measures in dealing with the situation. Since the social instability and insecurity in Nigeria seem to have resisted the police and military guns, a far-reaching solution must be sort to redress the current menace that is threatening the stability of Nigeria as a nation. Music is one of society’s weapons of offence and defence because it can be used to regulate human conduct. This paper explored the avenues of using music as a unifying force to institute lasting security and social stability that is devoid of ethnocentrism in a multi-ethnic country like Nigeria. This is hoped to be achieved through survey method and bibliography. A suggestion is made for music practitioners from various ethnic groups in Nigeria to produce music that possess universal appeal geared towards fostering peace and security in the country.Keywords: Music, Social stability, Security challenges Ethnocentrism and social control

  • The bourgeois hawks in market arena: a Marxist reading of A Market of

    • Authors: Niyi Adebanjo, Seye Sodiji
      Abstract: Society, at its different stages of development, is said to evolve different modes of economic production- ranging from primitive mode, slavery mode, feudal mode, capitalist mode and sociological mode. Deploying Marxist literary theory, the paper focused on the effects and the implications of socio-economic evolution in A Market of Betrayals by examining the prevailing mode of production in the play, the type of social relations that exist among the people and govern their relation; those who determine these rules and the means of enforcing them as well as the implication for the opposing force and the society at large. Through textual analysis, it is established that the inherent contradictions in the world of A Market of Betrayals stem from the hidden selfish interest and hypocrisy of the dominant economic force which is in conflict with the interest of the working class. The hidden interests are presented as having universal values meant for the well-being of the people. The paper concluded that any socio-economic relations geared towards exploiting the people will eventually lead to a conflict because of its inherent contradictions. This conflict does not always resolve itself into a new position, essentially different from the original position.Keywords: Bourgeois, Proletariat, Superstructure, Hawks, Dialectical materialism

  • Domestic violence in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Purple

    • Authors: Margaret Fafa Nutsukpo
      Abstract: Gender-based violence is an issue that has become a part of modern society, cutting across cultures, race, ethnicity and status. In Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus, gender-based violence manifests in the form of domestic violence, projected through the Eugene Achike family around whom the story, set in the eastern part of Nigeria, revolves. Clearly, the domination of women is the most fundamental form of female subjugation in the African society. This is largely due to cultural influences for, the patriarchal culture, inherent in the African society, encourages prejudices against women, and accepts the battery of wives (and, by extension, children) by husbands as normal. Domestic violence is therefore a regular feature in many African homes, a situation which is portrayed by Adichie in her debut novel, Purple Hibiscus, as she advocates change in the attitude of society to this anomaly. The success of her advocacy is the focus of this article.

  • Care givers’ knowledge of integrating the Montessori; indigenous
           communicative teaching methods and Reggio Emilia in early child care

    • Authors: A.C. Izuagba, A.O. Afurobi, P.C. Ifegbo, J.M. Opara
      Abstract: Studies have identified the mismatch between theory and practice as the main reason for gap between the intended and the achieved curriculum objectives. The early childcare education is no exception. Theories of child development emphasize that children learn best through play and self-discovery. Unfortunately, research results revealed that caregivers do not adhere to the prescribed pedagogy and since pedagogy stems from the theory of the nature of the learner and how he learns; it implies that failure to use the right pedagogy adversely affects the achievement of the objectives. The study therefore sought to identify caregivers’ knowledge of integrating Montessori, Indigenous Communicative Teaching and Reggio Emilia approaches in Early Childhood Care Education in Owerri Educational zone, Imo State, Nigeria. The study is a descriptive survey with the population comprising all caregivers in government approved pre-primary schools totalling 119, using a 39-item questionnaire and percentages as well as chi square for data analyses. Results showed that respondents were not knowledgeable. Recommendations include the need to monitor caregivers to ensure compliance to stipulated policy.Keywords: childcare education, caregivers

  • A manual beaming device: an improved method for warp winding in broadloom

    • Authors: Charles Frimpong, Raphael Kanyire Seidu, Petra Ama Agyei
      Abstract: Challenges with broadloom beaming that affect the weaving process and eventually the woven fabric aspect, could be as a result of the great bulk of yarns attached to the weighted box for tensioning. This project sought to construct a beaming device that maintains even tension of warp yarn at beaming by reducing the amount of yarns held together in a group to the weighted box. The study employed the Universal Research Methodology (URM). Results from interviews and observations, aided in constructing an appropriate device for beaming. In the study, relevant data was solicited from textile students and technicians at the textile section of the Industrial Art Department of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology which aided in designing the blueprints. The outcome of the study after 14 beaming revealed that challenges and faults hitherto encountered at beaming and weaving were largely absent. The study recommends the adaptation of this new mechanism and method of warp attachment to ensure smoother weaving and enhanced fabric quality.Keywords: Broadloom Weaving, Warp Preparation, Manual Beaming, Beaming Device, Tension Differentials
