  • Contemporary families in Nigeria and the socialization of the youths:
           implication for counseling

    • Authors: Justina Ingiaga D. Reamen
      Abstract: The paper discusses the family as the basic unit of society, and how the family can facilitate the socialization of Nigerian youths by enhancing or inhibiting it. The paper looked at the roles the family plays in binding its members together for the smooth growth of the society at large. It also addresses the changing roles in the family system which is manifested through marital conflicts, women abandoning their roles as housekeepers for gainful employment, deterioration in morals, and child labour among others. However, the paper believes that guidance and counseling both in school and non-school setting can help curb this menace through family reorientation, value based counseling and mass media. Some recommendations were made to include teaching of good morals and the basic skills of hard work and discipline through monitoring and mentoring the youths.Keywords: Contemporary families, Socialization, Counseling, Youths

  • Urban slums and youth criminality in Calabar Municipality of Cross River
           State, Nigeria

    • Authors: Fidelis Ngaji Akwaji, Francis Abul Uyang, Lazarus B. Abonor
      Abstract: In the diagnosis of contemporary threat to state stability, urbanization is inevitably included among the litany of emerging challenges. This study sets out to examine the relationship between urban slums and youth criminality in Calabar urban area of Cross River State, Nigeria. To achieve this objective, 400 respondents were selected for questionnaire completion. The study relied on both primary and secondary data. The findings showed that unemployment is a driving force of youth criminality in slum areas of Calabar. The slum areas serve as hideouts for criminals since accessibility to these areas is difficult. Residents showed strong dissatisfaction with the role of the Police in crime control in the area. We recommend structural reforms towards economic efficiency through provision of employment opportunities by government in partnership with private organizations to improve the quality of life of the people. There should be combined efforts of the police and vigilante to check criminality in the area.Keywords: Urban, Slums, Youth and Criminality

  • Underdevelopment theory: a conceptual clarification

    • Authors: Umar Dantani
      Abstract: This paper examines the theoretical exposition of underdevelopment based on content analysis and qualitative techniques. The paper argues that underdevelopment in the third world nations resulted from the negative effects of colonialism and neocolonialism i.e., exploitation of mineral resources of colonies, unequal terms of trade, imposition of foreign rule and dubious activities of multinational corporations. The adoption of adjustment programmes by the third world nations has contributed immensely to their underdevelopment. However, there are internal dimensions to development of underdevelopment in the third world nations such as widespread corruption, prebendalism, personalization of power, poor leadership and lack of good institutions to discharge social responsibilities efficiently and effectively. Thus, unless corruption is controlled to the barest minimum, good leadership installed and exploitative tendencies of international capitalist system controlled through a regulated capitalism, the third world nations would continue to be underdeveloped.Keywords: Underdevelopment, development, third world nations, dependency

  • Heritage management and development in Dire Dawa City administration:
           touristic values in focus

    • Authors: Mesafint Tarekegn Yalew
      Abstract: The study explores heritage management and development in Dire Dawa City Administration, with a focus on the touristic values of cultural heritages in the city of Dire Dawa. Both primary and secondary sources were used to solicit viable information. Qualitative data are used to explore details of heritages found in Dire Dawa. Dire Dawa is primarily known for being a trading center; however, it also has numerous cultural heritages that can attract tourists and investors. Kezira and Megalla were the two earliest quarters of Dire Dawa that have been influenced by foreign legacies. However, these heritage found in Dire Dawa needs proper care and preservation from damage caused by construction works and other development activities, especially as the heritages are not collected and organized in museums and archives. To maximize the benefits from its strategic location and various cultural attractions, the city administration should maintain and preserve the existing heritages as tourist attractions. With an effective promotional work, the planned heritage tourism development can draw the attention of prospective visitors.Keywords: Development, heritage, legacies, tourism, and management

  • Rewriting the Caribbean experience in Homerian style: a study of themes,
           style and vision in Derek Walcott’s Omeros

    • Authors: Mathias Iroro Orhero
      Abstract: This study investigates the themes that bother upon the Caribbean experience in Derek Walcott’s Omeros. A brief introduction to the poetry of Derek Walcott is given before attempts are made at rendering some of the themes of the work such as identity, slavery/colonialism, rootlessness, reconciliation, and migration. These themes are discussed with relevant extracts from the poem. It is realised that the poem is a re-enactment of the total Caribbean experience in all its totality. However, the study goes further to underscore the peculiar Homerian style of the poem. The style is discussed with regards to the extant epics of Homer and Dante and some of the stylistic indicators discovered include the use of the epic genre itself, the use of the terza rima, statement of theme, the use of symbolism and imagery and, of course, the language of the poem. These stylistic devices are used to underscore the importance of the poem in the Caribbean literary canon. Finally, Derek’s Walcott’s ultimate vision of reconciliation is briefly examined in this work. Findings show that this poem is Derek Walcott’s seminal masterpiece on reconciliation for the Caribbean people.Keywords: Derek Walcott, Caribbean, Homerian, Themes, Techniques

  • The effect of student learning strategies on performance and carrier
           development: the case of University for Development Studies, Wa Campus

    • Authors: Simon Kaba Kanlisi
      Abstract: In an increasingly global environment bedeviled with various social, economic and environmental challenges; the quest for education that guarantees employability has become paramount. The extent to which higher educational institutions’ curriculum responds to employability has been questioned by industry, parents and students. This study explored the learning strategies of 500 undergraduate students in higher education in the Wa Campus of the University for Development Studies, Tamale, Ghana and the effect on their performance and carrier aspirations. Twenty lecturers and managers of three development organisations that receive students on internship were also purposively selected. The study revealed that generally, the immediate objective of excelling in examinations has been the driving force of students’ choice of a learning strategy throughout the levels of their undergraduate studies. The results also gave an indication that students tended to adopt specific learning strategies because of impressions they have built regarding the nature of course delivery by instructors/teachers/lecturers. Even though almost all the undergraduate programmes’ curriculum involve practical work including internships in addition to expectations that as students graduate to levels 300 and 400, they will begin to apply their knowledge and network more, many more of them rather prefer memorization which they claimed increases their chances of excelling academically. The study concluded that to ensure that students are able to make a full contribution to society, institutions of higher learning need to create more opportunities for students and academia to
      interface with industry in order to boost students’ self-confidence and to re-orient them towards reformulating their educational objectives to mirror the requirements of industry.Keywords: Student, learning, strategies, performance, carrier development

  • The policies that shaped events in the relationship between the British
           and the Eastern Provinces of Nigeria 1940-1950

    • Authors: Emma M. Gbenenye
      Abstract: This article is titled the policies that shaped events in the relationship between the British officials and the people of the eastern provinces of Nigeria 1940-1950. The paper attempts to analyze the colonial policies that shaped the relationship between British official and the Nationalist politicians in the Eastern provinces. It argues that the British colonial empire combined two contradictory principles; self-government and freedom in London, autocracy and denial of freedom outside the metropole particularly in the Eastern Provinces. Not only was the organization of government different but also were the administration of justice, policies and relations to education. It has been shown that unequal relationship existed between the metropolitan powers and the Eastern provinces of Nigeria. The findings from this paper have supported the conclusion that the British had corporate interest of imposing an enclave economy based on production for exports and the imposition of consumer goods on the colony.Keywords: Native policies, contradictory principle of self-government, autocracy and trusteeship

  • The new partnership for Africa’s development: problems and prospects

    • Authors: Emma M. Gbenenye
      Abstract: The paper examines the previous African development initiatives in its historical context, the theoretical framework on which NEPAD is predicated, the organizational structure, objectives, problems and prospects. The aim of the paper is to portray the view that NEPAD is not a marshal plan for Africa like the European marshal plan after the Second World War. In addition, the NEPAD’s main goal is to reach a new and substantially higher level of development. The significance of the study is that NEPAD is not a blue print like other African development initiatives to be implemented in the context of national development strategies of individual African countries. Rather, it is a programme through which African leaders are setting an agenda for the renewal of African frame of interaction with the rest of the world. Our finding is that despite the progress made by an increasing number of African countries toward macro-economic stability and reform since the mid 1980’s, Africa’s overall growth performance had remained in adequate and poverty is still wide spread in Africa. The methodology has been the use of primary and secondary source materials.Keywords: Development, Marshall Plan, Problems, Prospects and Poverty

  • Resource efficiency in agricultural development: human capital development
           perspective and poverty challenges in developing countries

    • Authors: Esther Monisola Alao
      Abstract: Nigeria’s current economic recession, high poverty rate (71-74.2%) and unemployment informed the need to examine the extent that agricultural sector could assist in accelerating economic growth and development. Agriculture accounts for over 78.3% of labour in Nigeria and contributed about 23.9% of the Gross National Domestic product in 2016. This informed the need to examine resource efficiency based on human capital perspective in agricultural sector using Landmark University as a case study. A descriptive study reliant on both primary and secondary data was carried out using employees of Landmark University farm. There was a highly significant relationship between agricultural workers’ training needs and productivity. Human capital development and economic growth were positively correlated. The study concludes that an efficient system can be obtained through the development of the human capital, thus emphasizing the linear relationship between human capital development, agricultural-enterprise and economic growth. This should translate to rapid economic growth as investment in workers’ agricultural skills is strategized. Adequate training programmes are needed to enhance synergistic underpinnings that cut across the human capital. Equally, the new focus on agriculture involves training on new technologies and evolving modern methods of generating farm output. It is only an enlightened mind that can produce the expected effectiveness in productivity that will enhance economic growth.Keywords: Efficiency, Economic Growth, Synergy, Strategy, Human Capital Development

  • An alternative approach to financing development in Africa

    • Authors: Adewole Musiliu Adeolu
      Abstract: To make adequate capital available to finance development projects in Africa, several important and innovative ideas became popular in the early and later post-independent years. Much of these ideas included a proposal for International Finance Facility (IFF) to increase development aid substantially for the millennium development goals (MDGs) to be achieved by 2015, the use of global environmental taxes, tax on currency flows (the ‘Tobin tax’), creation of new special drawing rights (SDRs), increased private donations for development, global lottery and global premium bond; and increased remittances from emigrants. In addition, the conventional official development assistance (ODA) needed to be doubled for the goals of the MDGs to be achieved. Here, we make a case for renewed international efforts directed at recovery of looted resources and their judicious application to the financing of development projects in Africa.Keywords: Entrepreneurship, de facto political power, development finance
