  • Diversification of Nigeria Economy and National Development 2005-2012

    • Authors: Ibiam Sunday Mba, Eme; Okechukwu Innocent, Ihejirika Ngozi Obinnaiheji, Chidiebere Scholastica Nebo
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: Economic diversification has been the only solution to Nigeria’s economic challenges with the country in control of diversely untapped natural and human resources. This work has contextually x-rayed some much more considered theoretical paths of economic development through economic diversification and placed the blame for Nigeria’s economic backwardness on political will and lack of commitment to national course of political leaders. Since the diverse policy process of the government had yielded little or no sustainable results, even when the emphasis is to utilize the potentials in non-oil sectors to benefit ever-increasing population. Nigeria is relatively diversified but the positive impact of real diversification through surplus economic gains has not been achieved. A holistic approach to development was adopted in the theoretical framework used in this work that positively affects state, people and their relationship nationally and internationally. The thrust of the theory encourages free trade policy, efficient competition and democratic features to liberalize productivity through various guided legislation in line with Globalized Quality Standard. The research design was descriptive of the observed trend in the economy. It also analyses similar scholarly data collected for accuracy in exposing greatly a multi-sectoral approach in planning, dealing with interdependence using input-output matrix with reference to pre-independence and post-independence era of the national economy. This study looked at the positive intentions of some interventionist programmes and policies of the Government which were short-lived. Few years’ aggregate contribution and sectoral real GDP rate were stated. Recommendations were effectively based on keen interest in multi-sectoral diversification of an economy being the sub-structure that determines the effectiveness of super-structure.

  • Collaborative Governance in Tourism Development in Indonesia: Study of
           South Sumatera Province

    • Authors: Irene Camelyn Sinaga
      Pages: 16 - 35
      Abstract: Tourism is a potential sector in the development of an area with very minimal risk of environmental damage, this makes tourism the leading sector in all regions, including the province of South Sumatra. In a normative and empirical process, tourism development needs to be done through collaborative management, this is because tourism has multidimensional characteristics. South Sumatra Province with the potential it has and is supported by Brand Sport Tourism, it turns out that the development process is still being carried out separately between all parties involved, this has made tourism development in South Sumatra Province still not optimal. This research uses Collaborative Governance theory proposed by Ansell & Gash which can be seen from 4 (four) dimensions, namely initial conditions, facilitative leadership, institutional design, and the collaboration process. The research approach used in this research is a qualitative approach with descriptive research type. The data analysis technique used is data reduction and conclusion drawing. The results of the study indicate that the ongoing tourism development process has not yet fully adopted collaborative governance. This is because trust has not been formed in each of the actors involved.

  • Policy Formulation During Pandemic COVID-19: A New Evidence of Multiple
           Streams Theory from Yogyakarta, Indonesia

    • Authors: Agus Heruanto Hadna
      Pages: 36 - 55
      Abstract: This study aims to answer how the policy formulation process resolves the pandemic's impact in DIY Province, Indonesia, in 2020. DIY is chosen as the case in this study because the governor is also a king in this region. It was also considered the best province in handling the pandemic Covid-19 in 2020. This study used multiple streams proposed by John W. Kingdon to elaborate on the policy formulation process. This research method is qualitative, conducted using an online questionnaire, in-depth interview, documentary from March to October 2020. It found that policy, problems, and political streams overlapped in a policy window, i.e., pandemic crisis, as a common concern that must be addressed immediately. The new finding is that the government administration system that combines monarchy and decentralization models has encouraged crises to be resolved more quickly through an integrated multiple streams formulation. The other new finding is the governor, as a policymaker, can take advantage of the pandemic as a policy window to act as the sole policy entrepreneur.

  • Telehuman Services Improves the Engagement of Low-Income Populations

    • Authors: Yolandra A. Plummer
      Pages: 56 - 72
      Abstract: The paper describes a range of evidence-informed strategies that a Historically Black, Colleges and University (HBCU) work readiness program adopted to increase the engagement of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program participants during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program successfully engaged half of the program participants through two-generational (2Gen) approach. The 2Gen approaches target low-income children and parents from the same household and combine parent and child interventions to interrupt the cycle of poverty. These approaches emphasize early childhood education, economic supports, postsecondary education, social capital and health and well-being to create a legacy of economic security. The paper highlights the human services delivery strategies utilized to engage individuals into work readiness training activities during the pandemic. The paper presents data where certain 2Gen activities engaged TANF participants more than other 2Gen activities. The data reveals that half of the participants completed online digital literacy courses and earned training certifications. The intent of the paper is to offer state and local human service agency policymakers’ guidance on strategies to increase TANF participant engagement.

  • Political Elites and Politics of Exclusion as Challenges of Governance in
           Oyo State, Nigeria

    • Authors: Aliyu; M. Kolawole, Ikedinma Hope Amoge
      Pages: 73 - 89
      Abstract: This paper examined how political elites have excluded a number of people from partisan politics, and discussed the effect of the domineering role of political elites on good governance in Oyo state, Nigeria. The paper also examined the challenges that politics of exclusion pose on good governance in the study area. The study adopted primary and secondary data. For the primary data, in-depth interviews were conducted with ten purposively chosen respondents which comprised of former and serving lawmakers, party chairman, local government chairman, a labour leader, member of a social cultural group, and a serving commissioner. The secondary data was sourced from journal articles, books, newspapers and online publications. The primary and secondary data were content analyzed. The study found that political elites used the electorate to achieve their selfish political agenda; politics of exclusion is responsible for the poor participation of the people in partisan politics, undermining of democratic principles, and breeding of political violence in Oyo state, Nigeria. The study recommended that the Nigerian youths need to be more assertive to demand for accountability from political actors; while political elites should learn to do away with selfish interests. In addition, rule of law, freedom of the press and independence of the judiciary must be upheld in the country.
