The idea is that through improved access to quality seed varieties,  fertilisers and good agronomic practices, output would increase leading to an  increased market surplus. This study sought to investigate whether engagement  in ‘Planting for Food and Job’ (PFJ ) programme influences farm households’ maize  commercialization level in

      Pages: 25 - 47
      Abstract: Disasters associated with Fuel service stations (FSS) in Ghana have been debated  severally and attracted policy attention, yet their mitigation strategies seem too far  off and unimaginably  unrealistic. Knowing that such disasters can limit enjoyment  of citizenship rights, Ghana has developed safety standards geared towards  mitigating their effects. Framed around the compliance theory and drawing on  data from 150 residential owners located within 15.4m buffer zone and five state  institutions, this article examined the extent of compliance with safety policies  guiding FSS in Kumasi,

      Authors: David J. Manyerere
      Pages: 48 - 73
      Abstract: The article focused on examining how youth perception and use of social media  (SM) influences peace and conflicts among Tanzanians, using the Dar es Salaam  region as a case study. A qualitative approach was used to collect and analyse data.  A purposive sampling technique was used to select respondents, whereby youth,  local government officers and community residents were interviewed. The findings  revealed that SM has both advantages and disadvantages in promoting peace and  activating conflicts, depending on users’ perceptions and interests. SM facilitates

      Abstract: Older people in Ghana suffer from a wide range of disabilities including visual, physical, and hearing with serious ramifications on their quality of life. Therefore, this paper examines the psychological health quality of life (PHQOL) of older people  with disability in selected Districts in the Upper West Region of Ghana. Through  a census survey, questionnaires were used to obtain data from 810 respondents.Independent-samples t-test and one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) were used to  examine their PHQOL. The results showed that mean scores in PHQOL were highest  among those aged 60-69 and lowest for those aged 80 years and older with a  significant difference [F (807) = 23.872 value, p = 0.000] in PHQOL of their ages. Those  who were married had the highest PHQOL mean score compared with those who  were separated / divorced and widowed with significant difference [F (807) = 42.690  value, p = 0.000] noticed in PHQOL across marital statuses. Also, those with physical  disability had a higher mean score in PHQOL than those with visual disability. The  study concludes that any geriatric policy interventions aimed at improving the  PHQOL of older people with disability ought not to downplay their background  characteristics as they underpin their PHQOL.
