    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: TA Adebowale
      Abstract:
      The study examined the feelings of the widows in different categories. The purpose was to know the feelings of some widows in different categories towards widowhood. The subjects of the study were 120 widows with a mean age of 35years from three local government areas in Oyo state. Descriptive research design of survey type was used for the study. A validated self developed questionnaire, Widows Feeling and Expression Questionnaire (WFEQ) was used to collect data from the participants. Data collected were analysed using t-test statistics to test the four research hypotheses postulated in the study. The findings revealed that there was no significant difference between the young and the old widows in their feelings towards widowhood (t=0.168; df=118; P>0.05). No significant different between the Igbos and the Yorubas in their feelings towards widowhood (t=1.058; df=118; P>0.05). No significant difference between the low socio-economic and high socio-economic status towards widowhood (t=1.163; df 118, P>0.05). Also, no significant difference between the Christian and Muslim widows in their feelings towards widowhood (t=1.014; df -118, P>0.05). Implications of findings were discussed and recommendations proffered.

  • Ecclesia in Africa: Using Acts 1:8 as an Investigation of Intertextuality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: TG Lerotholi
      Abstract:
      Ecclesia-In-Africa is an official document of the Roman Catholic Church written and promulgated by the late Pope John Paul II to the Catholics in the view of the Great Jubilee Year of 2000. As a Church document, it is replete with references to the Bible taken mostly from the New Testament. The Book of the Acts of the Apostles is the one mostly used. Acts 1:8, in particular, stands out as the most favourite text throughout the whole document. Intertextuality brings together diverse texts and sees how they merge and dialogue. The paper investigates the import and the new significance resulting from the use of Acts 1:8 in Ecclesia-In-Africa. Intertextuality helps to illustrate the mutual enrichment each text brings to the other. Acts1:8 brings a new self-understanding and new identity to the Catholic Church in Africa. At the same time Acts 1:8 acquires a new significance when read in the context of the Church in Africa.

  • African Sexual Vulnerability to HIV Infection: Examples from Lesotho.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: FCL Rakotsoane
      Abstract:
      In an attempt to adequately respond to and redress the velocity of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, many countries of the world have embarked on intensive education and research programmes in pursuit of the most effective strategies and methods of prevention, care, mitigation and a possible cure. Successful as some of the strategies might have claimed in some parts of the world, in reducing the spread of HIV and AIDS, their impact has not been felt that much in many of the African countries where the infection rate continues to rise, reaching its crisis proportions. Though the factors that promote the HIV/AIDS pandemic are multifarious, this paper, however, proposes that certain African cultural factors, which are unique to Africa such as those associated with human sexuality, might be related to its persistence in the Continent. It is generally held that over 90% of the HIV infection cases in Africa take place through the exchange of sexual fluids. For this reason, the paper examined the ‘African sense of human sexuality' as an important index in Africans' vulnerability to HIV/AIDS.

  • An interdiscursive study of the founding texts of the Vaapostora veAfrica
           (African Apostolic) Church of Paul Mwazha WeAfrica

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: AT Manyawu
      Abstract:
      The exponential growth of Christianity on the African continent is, to a large extent, due to African Initiated Church (AIC) discourse's hybridity. Probably the most potent weapon in the strategy of African Apostolic Church of Zimbabwe archbishop, Paul Mwazha, is a founding text entitled “Kutumwa Kwa Paul Mwazha weAfrica” (English version: “The Divine Commissioning of Paul Mwazha of Africa”) Parts One and Two. This paper examines Part Two of Mwazha's text from a perspective of interdiscursivity in order to characterise its persuasive force. The study concludes that Mwazha's founding text incorporates a variety of voices, including the biography, the diary, the Bible and Bantu worldview. These discourses are skilfully used to contextualise Mwazha's voice. The choice of voices lends credibility to the author's voice through a judicious mix of styles related to Western, Biblical and Bantu discourses or worldviews.

      Authors: JO Osiki
      Abstract:
      The primary focus of this study was to investigate the likely decisions that spouses would consider when they discover that their partners are cheating in the relationship. The two options that were hypothesized are psychotherapy and, or legal means. Utilizing the simple random technique, 714 married participants, selected from three States in Nigeria with age range of 28 and 54 years and Mean age of 39.61 years (SD=7.18) constituted the sample for the study. Both the descriptive and inferential statistics at the 0.05 alpha levels were used for quantification. The findings, among others indicated that spouses' inability to appreciate each other and frequent nagging (80.4%) was the highest index for spousal trickery. While spousal cheating was more prevalent among the married who are childless and are under family pressure (79.5%),the findings further showed that spousal decision to pursue either psychotherapy and, or legal option was significantly different{F(2,713)=8.65;P

      Authors: L Kheekhe
      Abstract:
      The Paper essentially addresses the ecumenical importance of water as well as its overall utility to mankind. It argues that life is obviously meaningless without the commodity as every living creature derives his or her relevance from water.

  • An Investigation on Inclusive Instructional Practices and Learning of
           Students with Hearing Impairment in Post Secondary Schools in Oyo state,
           Nigeria

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: A Oyewuni
      Abstract:

      The purpose of this study was to investigate inclusive instructional practices and learning of students with hearing impairment in post secondary schools. The study employed a descriptive survey research design. Questionnaire was administered to 250 participants purposively selected in post secondary schools. 100 questionnaires for the teachers and 150 for the hearing impaired students were used in collecting the data. Descriptive statistics entailed frequency count, percentages, mean and standard deviation were used in analyzing the data generated for the 4 research questions. The results affirmed the virtues of inclusive education and also noted that significant number of the sampled teachers did not possess teaching credentials and do not have special education training. Hence, they lacked basic skills in teaching students with special needs, especially the hearing impairment, plagued with communication problems. Further, the pertinent role of interpreters was reiterated. However the hearing impairment students were comfortable with peers and lecturers. The study recommended that teachers should be given opportunities to attend courses or workshops on inclusive education. Teacher training institute and colleges should also include concept of inclusion as part of their curriculum.

  • Prevalence Of Cigarette Smoking Behaviour Among Secondary School Truants
           In Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Nigeria: Implications For Counselling

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: AA Owodunni
      Abstract:
      This study investigated the roles of gender, peer-group pressure and school-based factors in determining truancy behaviour among secondary school adolescents in Ijebu-ode, Ogun State, Nigeria. A survey research design was adopted, and three hypotheses were generated and tested in the study. Two hundred and ninety-eight (298) chronic truants (comprising 195 males and 103 females) identified in selected secondary schools in Ijebu-ode were used for the study. They responded to Non-School Attendance Questionnaire with reliability coefficient (r =0.88), and Cigarette Smoking Prevalence Questionnaire with reliability coefficient (r =0.84). Class attendance registers in the various schools/ class were also used in collecting data on the truant-respondents. Data were analyzed using simple percentages, chi-square and T-test statistics. The findings revealed that male students are more into truancy than their female counterparts (65.44%). It was also observed that in all, the peer group pressure accounted for the highest source of influence (68.12%). The implications of these results for the students, parents, and the school were discussed.

      Authors: AM Gesinde
      Abstract:
      The descriptive survey study was carried out to investigate the attitude of the staff of the Federal college of Education (Special), Oyo, Oyo State, Nigeria towards retirement. Two hundred and fifteen senior academic and non-academic staff selected through purposive sampling technique participated in the study. They were made of 14 9 (69.30%) males and 66 (30.70%) females. A research instrument titled ‘Questionnaire on Attitude towards Retirement' developed by the researcher with a Spearman rank correlation coefficient was used to gather data. Descriptive statistics of frequency count, mean and standard deviation and t-test statistic were used to analyze the data. Findings indicated that the participants had positive attitude towards retirement at _ X = 2.50 though at diverse mean level. Further data analysis showed that there was a significant difference on gender basis (t = 24.50: > t obs = 1.06 at ∂ = 0.05 level of significance). Consequently, the study recommended among others the introduction of pre and post retirement counselling in counsellors' training programmes as well as employment of counselors in public and private organizations to cater for pre and post retirement needs of the employees.

      Authors: A Kiadese
      Abstract:
      The study investigated the level of entrepreneurial aspiration of tertiary institution students in Ogun State. A total of 204 students selected through the purposive sampling technique from Olabisi Onabanjo University Ago- Iwoye, University of Agriculture Abeokuta, Tai Solarin University of Agriculture and Moshood Abiola Polythenic participated in the study. Three research questions were raised and answered. A researcher-developed questionnaire tagged entrepreneurial aspiration scale (EAS) was the major instrument used for data collection. The frequency counts, simple percentage, t – test of significance and analysis of variance (ANOVA) were the major statistical tools employed in data analysis. Findings from the study revealed high level of entrepreneurial aspiration among tertiary institutions students in Ogun State. It was recommended, among others, that agencies responsible for self-employment and enterprises development in Nigeria should put in place appropriate programmes, such as giving interest free loan, free consultancy services, establishment of centre for enterprises development in tertiary institutions, so as to assist students to realize their entrepreneurial aspirations and launch them into the business world.

      Abstract:
      Questions about gifted learners and the best way to teach them to face expected challenges is often a source of controversy. This is because old stereotype curriculum and conventional instructional strategies may not be enough to give the needed stimulation. The study adopted the pre-test, post-test, control group quasi-experiment design in a 3 x 2 factorial matrix. The subjects for the study consisted of 75 SS II gifted students from eight secondary schools in Nigeria. Multistage sampling technique was utilized for the selection of the participants, which were randomly assigned into three experimental groups. Analysis of Covariance was the main statistical method utilized to test two generated hypotheses at the probability level of 0.05. The findings revealed that there was significant treatment effect on subjects' post-test academic achievement scores (F(3.74) = 498; P < 0.05). Moreover, there was no significant main effect of gender (F(1.74) = 2.668; P > 0.05). It also indicated that gifted male subjects exposed to Enrichment Triad and Self-Directed models had higher mean score ( =80.93) than their female counterparts exposed to the same treatment ( = 79.34). Since the Enrichment Triad and Self-Directed models are capable of facilitating gifted students educational programmes, it is therefore recommended that both regular and special educators should use these models in facilitating the academic achievement of their gifted students.
