  • Manufacturing Growth Inhibition: From Linkage and Input Supply Perspective
           in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

    • Authors: Melaku Tanku Gebremariam
      Abstract: Manufacturing industries are among the sectors given precedence by the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) owing to their multifaceted primacy. Yet, the performance and share of Ethiopia’s manufacturing sector from the national economy is at its infancy regardless of ongoing resolute endeavors to improve its status. This paper examines manufacturing linkages and input sourcing as a factor for influencing firm performance in Ethiopia.Through information availed from both primary and secondary sources, this paper uses empirical evidence to examine how linkages between/among manufacturing and other sectors affect a nation's growth. Input sourcing has also been discussed as a variable to see sourcing related challenges. To this end, first-hand information was gathered using in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, and a sample survey. The information gathered was then analyzed using relevant analysis techniques and tools.Thusly, the paper shows that manufacturing industries in the country generate their inputs both from local and foreign sources depending on the nature of the manufacturing sub-sector. Input supply linkage in the nation is highly dominated by backward linkage compared to the forward one. It has been observed that limited input capacity utilization among manufacturers; use of inputs quality attribute for supplier selection by the dominant majority; reaching multiple sources for input generation; local sourcing of inputs featured with access from close geographic proximity (Addis Ababa and its surrounding); shortage and unavailability of inputs leading firms to look for sourcing from foreign origins; the dominance of backward linkage than forward; as well as trust, good transport and time/speed elapsed for delivery being used as decision criteria for selecting input suppliers. Incontestably, input supply linkage can be gauged with manufacturing industries and across different sectors (service, agriculture, mining, etc.). The general observation made in this regard is the presence of weak linkage both between manufacturing industries and across different sectors.This article argues that lack of strong forward and backward linkages between/among industries and inadequate input supply and poor quality of inputs are unsound for economy-wide growth that leads to inefficiencies, and is a root cause of insolvency, which is in itself growth-inhibiting. Conversely, strong linkages, and adequate input supply enhance growth because they facilitate the flow of inputs to where they have the largest net economic benefits. Hence, linkages and input sourcing need more policy attention. Keywords: Manufacturing, Backward Linkages, Forward linkages, Input sourcing, Input supply, Industrialization

  • On Farm Partial Budget Analysis of Hot Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.)
           Cultivars for Dry Pod to the Application of Blended Fertilizer and Urea
           Rates in Raya Azebo District, Northern Ethiopia

    • Authors: Wakuma Biratu
      Abstract: The experiment was conducted to draw information on the economic feasibility of the application of blended fertilizer and urea rates on hot pepper cultivars (Melka Awaze and Melka Shote) under Raya Azebo Agro-ecological Condition.  The experiment consisted of two hot pepper cultivars (Melka Shote and Melka Awaze) and five NPSZn + urea rates and one without fertilizer as a control. The trial was conducted to determine the most profitable rate/s of NPSZn + urea on selected two hot pepper cultivars. Two factor experiment (2*6) was arranged in RCBD with three replications. For the achievement of this objective, marketable red dry pod yield data was collected and analyzed using SAS version 9.3. The highest marketable (2.29 t ha-1) yield was recorded when Melka Shote cultivar was combined with 84.5 NPSZn +136.5 urea kg ha-1. In terms of economic feasibility, application of fertilizer at the rate of 84.5 NPSZn + 136.5 urea kg ha-1 to Melka Shote cultivar was found to be the most profitable, which gave net benefit of 132037 ETB ha-1 and marginal rate of return above the acceptable minimum rate of return (51.63%.). Thus, at Mehoni agricultural research site and for the surrounding farmers in Raya Azebo and other areas which have similar agro-ecological conditions, application of 84.5 NPSZn + 136.5 urea kg ha-1 to Melka Shote cultivar is recommended to obtain maximum economic return. However, to give sound recommendation it is important to repeat the experiment at this location in different season. Keywords: Cultivars; Net benefit;Melka Awaze; Melka Shote

  • Same-Sex Marriage in Ghana: Scripture, Health Law and Bioethics

    • Authors: John Kwaku Opoku, Eric Manu, Dorcas Mireku Appiah
      Abstract: Same-sex relationship is not a recent phenomenon. In the Christian scripture (Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13) are traces of sexual prohibitions which have guided the morality of Christian marriage for years. Also, early colonial regulations in the Gold Coast (and perhaps other British colonies) contained strict prohibitions against homosexuality. In Ghana today, same-sex marriage is an illegal and ethical subject attracting diverse opinions. Whilst some Western countries recognize same-sex marriage and provide free movement as well as residency permits for same-sex couple, the marriage is repressed, criminalized and forbidden in most parts of Africa (if not entirely). The paper is to examine same-sex marriage and the extent to which scripture, health law and bioethics have shaped and informed attitudes toward homosexual activities in Ghana today. The paper examines Christian scriptural and bioethical responses which can serve as a means for co-existence. Keywords: Same-sex marriage, Scripture, Health law, Bioethics, Co-existence

  • Strengthening the Legislature for Effective Performance at the Third Tier
           of Government in Nigeria

    • Authors: Aliyu; M. Kolawole, Bamidele Samson Olukayode
      Abstract: The legislature is a vital organ of government in a democratic regime just as the executive and the judiciary. Unfortunately, the legislature at local government level in Nigeria has become moribund to deliver its vital roles due to a number of challenges such as party politics, appointment of caretaker members into council areas, use of local-state joint account, overbearing of the state government(s) on grassroots activities, and so on. As a result of the above challenges, the legislature at the third tier of government needs to be repositioned for effective service delivery. Hence, this paper examines the challenges of the legislature at the third tier of government with a view to making it more assertive to deliver on its constitutional roles. The study adopts qualitative method in its investigation. Data for the study were gathered from secondary sources and were content analyzed. The study revealed that the legislative activities at the grassroots in Nigeria are below expectation. This paper concludes that if the legislative arm of government is properly strengthened at the grassroots, it is capable of enabling people to receive urgent attention, assist in public engagement, reduce marginalization, and convey higher degree of legitimacy on the legislators for decision making. Keywords: strengthening, the legislature, effective performance, service delivery, third tier of government.
