  • Rationale for the Use of Public Relation Initiatives by Teachers of
           Agricultural Science in Secondary Schools in Nigeria

    • Authors: FAMIWOLE; Remigius O.
      Abstract: This paper investigated the rationale for the use of public relation initiatives by teachers of agricultural science to promote their programmes to the public. It has been observed that most of the success stories about schools agricultural science programmes hardly get to the public thereby creating a wide communication gap between what the school and the teachers of agriculture are doing and the need, interest and developmental strides of the community where the schools are located. Four (4) research questions and one hypothesis were generated for the study. The sample used consisted of 60 teachers of agricultural science, who were sampled through a stratified random sampling techniques from the three senatorial distinct in the state. Three (3) sets of questionnaire containing 25 items were used for data collection. The data were analysed using frequency counts, percentages, mean, standard deviation, and t-test. The hypothesis was tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that the teachers of agricultural science do not publicise their programmes “success stories” to the public. They however agreed with the public relation initiatives suggested for consideration when planning agricultural science programmes to serve the public interest. There was no significant difference in the opinion of the teachers in both public and private secondary schools. Based on the finding of the study, it was recommended, among others, that all teachers of agricultural science should develop effective educational programmes and success stories that are catchy in nature for “sell out” to the public on regular basis. Parents, officials of the Ministry of Education and Agriculture and other stakeholders of the school system should be invited on regular basis to observe the school farms, agricultural science activities, during PTA meetings, inter house sport competitions, agric shows and others, so as to have a first hand information about the agricultural science success stories in each school.

  • The Production and Exportation of Garments under the AGOA Initiative:
           Challenges Facing Garment Producers in Ghana.

    • Authors: Docea A.G. Fianu; Vivian Biney-Aidoo, Eunice Antiaye, Joyce Adwoa Oppong
      Abstract: The study investigated the problems faced by garment producers in the production and exportation of garments under the AGOA initiative. The proportionate random and purposive sampling techniques were used to select 100 non-exporters and 10 exporters respectively from Accra and Tema. Data was collected using a well structured interview questionnaire and observation guide. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze the data and the results presented in frequency and percentage distributions, bar charts and cross-tabulations. The non-exporters lacked finances; market; skilled and reliable workers; information and sensitization; and had difficulty in adhering to the guidelines of the initiative. The problems faced by the exporters were cumbersome export processing procedures; customs officials’ lack of education on AGOA; high cost of production; lack of raw materials to satisfy buyer specifications; and lack of good quality packaging materials. The Chi-square one-variable method indicated a relationship between the type of training and problems encountered in the production of garments under the AGOA initiative. It is suggested that garment producers form clusters and pool their resources together to effectively deliver good quality garments on schedule. Keywords: Challenges, Garment production, AGOA
  • Appraising the Use of Computer Technology in Garment Production Firms in
           Accra/Tema Metropolis

    • Authors: Joyce Adwoa Oppong; Eunice Antiaye, Vivian Biney-Aidoo
      Abstract: The main objective of the study is to investigate the activities of garment production in relation to computer technology, expose garment producers to some useful computer applications and also to sensitize them to take advantage of the advancement in Computer Technology. The findings of the study revealed the plight and burden of the garment producers. Most of the garment producers had the basic equipments that are just necessary to stay in business but not sophisticated machinery that can be used to produce to meet international standards. Three major problems confronting the garment producers were (a) inability to produce on a large scale (b) inability to produce at competitive prices and (c) inability to satisfy quality standards. Garment producers found in the Accra-Tema metropolis did not have much knowledge of computer technology, but they were delighted about the information that would relieve them of their problem of speed and productivity. Although they listed some disadvantages that may be related to CAD, the advantages outweighed the disadvantages. The study makes recommendation to incorporate computer technology in the fashion curriculum to equip students with the skills ready for the world of work. Keywords: African Growth and Opportunity Act, Computer Aided Design, 
  • Genesis 3 and Evolution of Costume among Asarama People of Rivers State
           (Niger-Delta), Nigeria

    • Authors: Ucheawaji G. Josiah
      Abstract: The inception of sin as revealed in Genesis 3 is tied to the emergence and evolution of costume: chagoroth (that is, loincloth, in Genesis 3:7) and kathnuth ‘or (garment of skin in Genesis 3:21). However, through the centuries, humans had faced the changing patterns and designs of costume. This is typical of the Asarama people of Rivers State, Niger Delta. This paper therefore examines and submits that the pre-colonial male costume consisted of Mkpopu (George) used by ‘free born’ male elders tied mainly for identification purpose. Latter additions were Ekut-ikpo (towel-like clothe) and Alo (foreign wax). The pre-colonial female costume were Asi-ebon-iiba (double waist-beads) tied around the waist without any dress on top. Others were velvet and Ikaki, Tawul-irak-ebon and Dembesi (English damask). The Colonial/post colonial male costume were Mkpopu though used by females also at this time, Etibor, Owokor, Atoro-onyedua (nicknamed okirika) and trousers were added. The Colonial/post colonial female costume was made up of a pair of trousers, and Atoro-onye-dua or etomelek-ekene-isim aided by modernism. The evolution of costume in Genesis 3 is made evident among Asarama people of Rivers State, Niger Delta Keywords: Asarama people of Rivers State, evolution of costume, Genesis 3, pre-colonial, colonial/postcolonial eras
  • Change: The Philosophical and the Aesthetical Concept Inspired by the Arab
           Spring Movements

    • Authors: Insaf Rabadi
      Abstract: Arab revolutionary movements (the so called Arab spring movements) grew as the Arab nations are on the verge of the end of an era nearing its enclosure, phasing a historic transformation of their people passing the dark shadows of autocracies and dictatorships, a stage missing the role of people and forcing to choose between tyrants and invaders. And because the scene is as big as the event itself, it's difficult for any individual effort to put a clear perspective that reads the deep intellectual, cultural, political, social and economical reflections of these movements, even it's harder to follow up this the revolutionary generation stunning the crowds, cheering for change, bringing down regimes and looking forward to build the future, as it is the future of the Arab nation. To join back the global civilization, the Arab nation can restore its position among nations with its creative and challenging generations, and these revolutionary movements were the first steps towards this change. Thus, this study aimed at finding out the trends and the implications of these movements rocking the Arab countries, and exploring the dream of the new generations.
