  • Property Tax Dynamics Reengineering in Nigeria: The Alternative
           Infrastructure Financing Option for National Development

    • Authors: I.A. Ankeli, A.S. Adepoju, T.M. Ajayi, A.O. Kemiki , N.I. Popoola, O.T. Alabi
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: The availability of resources to either provide new infrastructural facilities, services or to maintain the few obsolete ones has recently become an issue of national concern. States across the country have witnessed and are still witnessing a critical infrastructure deficit. Scholars globally have suggested property tax as a formidable alternative infrastructure financing option. The study examines the need for property tax dynamics reengineering in Nigeria to provide valuable information as an infrastructure financing option for national development through a theoretical research approach. The study established the link between real property investment and property tax dynamics, the nexus between property tax and infrastructure development and Nigeria's need for property tax reengineering. The study found the deteriorating state of critical infrastructure due to overuse and lack of adequate maintenance. Hence, it concluded that the reawakening of the property tax system in the country could help facilitate the transformational agenda of the Local Government Administration in the country. It recommended replicating the robust Lagos state property taxation strategy across the other states in Nigeria.

  • Indigenous Contractors' Knowledge Management Maturity Level for
           Construction of Healthcare Vaccines Cold Store in Nigeria

    • Authors: N. Gambo, M.M. Musa, A.N. Zadawa
      Pages: 14 - 35
      Abstract: This study evaluates the level of knowledge management maturity (KMM) of Nigerian indigenous contractors for the construction of vaccine cold stores in line with the World Health Organization's (WHO) best practices. This study identifies the significant factors influencing contractors' KMM for the construction of vaccine cold stores. The study adopted a quantitative research approach, and the comparison methodologies between the contractors' KMM and WHO's practices were achieved through ANOVA with Post Hoc. The study respondents were mainly the project managers working with contractors and the ones working with the public sector in Nigeria. The total population of the project managers was 2150 which 322 respondents were selected for the analysis. The results indicated that the level of the contractors' KMM is "Knowledge Quantitative Managed Level" against WHO's "Knowledge Optimization Level". The contractor's level of KMM was found to be at the quantitative knowledge-managed level. Meaning i.e., the organizational standard level which is less than the recommended WHO's optimization level. This research work establishes a new KMM level for Nigerian contractors which was based on the perception of project managers in the Nigerian construction industry. The findings from this study create awareness of the process of KMM measurement in healthcare facilities in developing countries like Nigeria. This implies that the Nigerian indigenous contractors are at a level of knowledge quantitative managed. Hence, the knowledge-quantitative managed level is the technical requirement level. This implies that the Nigerian indigenous contractors fall short of the WHO's recommended level of KMM optimization level. Therefore, there is a need to improve KMM practices for the indigenous contractors in Nigeria.

  • Assessment of Students' Perceptive Image of Zaria Kaduna State
           Nigeria

    • Authors: M. Sani
      Pages: 36 - 51
      Abstract: The paper addresses urban environmental perception by university students of Zaria, Nigeria. The subject was approached from the perspectives of assessing perception of attributes of the urban environment in its functional and aesthetic valuation. Fifty-one undergraduate students of the Urban Planning programme at Ahmadu Bello University were administered a set of questions on the subject in classroom setting. The questions probed their perceptive assessment of the city on the criteria of morphological cognition, aesthetics, image and urban services and infrastructure provisioning. The findings show that familiarity with neighbourhoods is very low, indicating low cognitive character for the city and the respondents' own level of integration in the urban milieu. The findings also reveal a series of features identified by the respondents and associated positively or negatively to the image of the city. The assessment was based on a ten-point environmental perception scale on which the respondents gave low scores for the city on the attributes of environmental aesthetics (0.97/10), services and infrastructure (0.5/10) and overall city image (4.4/10). This shows that the perceptive image of the city is very low. Recommendations were made based on the implications for urban planning and design in Nigerian cities.

  • An Evaluation of Utilities, Facilities and Services Performance in
           University of Jos and Plateau State University, Bokkos

    • Authors: O.S. Egegwu, M.U. Bello, N. Iruaganachi
      Pages: 52 - 66
      Abstract: The research was aimed at assessing the levels of facilities performance in University of Jos  and Plateau State University, Bokkos, with a view of improving the levels of facilities performance of both universities for efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainable performance of the facilities to attain the intended life expectancy of the both universities' facilities and other similar tertiary institutions both within and outside Nigeria. The research employed a crosssectional survey design and a quantitative research approach. The research used close-ended questionnaire instruments to collect relevant and pertinent data. A total of three hundred and twenty-two (322) and two hundred and eighty-five (285) questionnaires were administered to the respondents, 200 level, 300 level, and 400 level students on the campus of both universities respectively. Out of the total number of the questionnaires administered to the respondents, two hundred and eighty-five (285) and two hundred and eleven (211) were retrieved and used. The study adopted simple random sampling for arriving at the sample size. The research data were analyzed descriptively using SPSS Version 22. The findings revealed that levels of facilities performance for student hostels, toilets, water, and electricity was ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively followed by other facilities in the University of Jos. Furthermore, levels of facilities performance for student hostels, toilets, and lecture theatres were ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively followed by other facilities for Plateau State University. The study recommended that; Catering services, shopping for toiletries, and cafeteria, and waste disposal should be adequately provided for students in a serene learning environment in the University of Jos. Water and electricity, catering services, computer and ICT, sports facilities, and waste disposal should as a matter of urgency adequately provided for in the institution for students to improve their wellbeing and be mentally alerted to learn trends in information communication technology and other aspects and meet up with international best practices. Government or stakeholders of the universities should develop facilities service performance assessment for facilities managers for evaluating and communicating the performance of the services of facilities and also to detect any defects and replace it as this would help in extending the lifespan of the facilities in both Universities.

  • Analysis of Willingness to Pay for Waste Evacuation in the Central
           Business District of Jos Town, Plateau State, Nigeria

    • Authors: N.A. Umaru, M.M. Bello, M.O. Idris
      Pages: 67 - 84
      Abstract: The study analyzed the public willingness to pay for waste evacuation in the Central Business District (CBD) in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria. The study used a structured questionnaires and observation techniques. A total of 220 questionnaires was distributed, 200 were returned and used for final analysis. Charts, percentages and descriptive methods were used to present the results of the research. A Correlation analysis determined the relationship between the effectiveness of waste evacuation and willingness to pay. The result revealed that the public is willing to pay for waste evacuation but some cannot afford the present payment structure which was N 1,000 weekly. Findings showed that 65% were willing to pay N 200 or less weekly, while 20% were willing to pay N 500 weekly for waste evacuation. Government should collaborate with private sectors to come up with ingenious ways of paying for waste evacuation using different modes of payment. Similarly, sanitary inspectors should pay more attention to performance, monitoring and accountability to justify the payments made for waste evacuation in the study area.

  • Reliability Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Beams Produced with Metakaolin

    • Authors: J. Ya'u, O.G. Okoli, D. Dahiru , J.M. Kaura
      Pages: 85 - 99
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the reliability of reinforced concrete beams produced with metakaolin as a supplementary cementitious material under provision of BS 8110 (1985: 1997) and BS 1881: Part 118: 1983,experimental design was adopted where representative statistics and appropriate probability distribution of basic resistance and load variables are obtained. The data obtained for compressive strength test, tensile strength of reinforcement, self-weight of beam, imposed load on beams, length, breadth, and height for reinforced concrete beams produced with 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% replacements of cement with metakaolin were fitted to five statistical distributions models. The distribution fitting was achieved with Kolmogorov-Smirnov test method using statistical computer package Easy-fit. The mean values of the variables, distribution models, and standard deviations obtained from this research were acceptable when compared with the values in the existing literature and found suitable for a running reliability analysis. FORTRAN programing language was used to develop subroutine and performance function equation for shear, bending and deflection of the beams. Prediction of structural performance based on target safety index of 3.7 and 4.7 according to the Joint Committee of Structural Safety JCSS (2001) was achieved.

  • Influence of Abattoir on Water Quality in Oko-Oba, Lagos State, Nigeria

    • Authors: I.A. Hassan, A.T. Towolawi, H.O. Emun
      Pages: 100 - 113
      Abstract: Anthropogenic activity has the tendencies to negatively impact quality of natural resource in the neighbourhood. Water which is required of man for adequate, hygiene and proper sanitation is a typical example of resource that abattoir activity hardly leaves undisturbed. This prompted the current study to assess water quality around Oko-Oba area of Lagos State. Twelve water samples: ten (A-J) from residences, positive (abattoir effluent) and negative (500 m away from) control were randomly collected and analysed for physiochemical, trace and heavy metals using APHAmethods of examination and bacteriological (total plate count, coliform count and confirmatory faecal coliform) analysis using Pour Plate method with serial -10 dilution of tenfold (10 ). The data obtained were descriptively (mean and standard deviation) and inferentially (Analysis of Variance) analysed using SPSS v23. The results showed that the total plate count test of sample G, and coliform and faecal coliform tests of sample B exceeded the WHO limit (100 cfu/mL). The negative control had 3 cfu/mL (total plate count) and (–ve) for both coliform and faecal coliform tests. The EC of sample G (3.4 µS/m) < WHO limit (1.0 µS/m) and pH of A-J indicated acidic (4.5 - 5.7). None of the heavy metals exceeded the limits in both drinkable water and abattoir effluent samples. The study showed that the abattoir activities minimally contributed to heavy metal loads in all the water samples, though affected the drinkable water compared with the negative control. The study recommended a need for measure to avoid prospective severe contamination.

  • Assessment of Physicochemical Parameters of Oil and Gas Terminal Effluent
           of the Bonny Estuary, Rivers State, Nigeria

    • Authors: A.W. Ebuete, H.C.J. Adike, O.K. Berezi
      Pages: 114 - 129
      Abstract: A study was conducted to assess resultant impact of industrial activities on the physicochemical parameters of the Bonny estuary. Water sampled at a depth of 100cm from three stations (BE1- E3) were analyzed for 24 parameters. pH, temperature, conductivity, and turbidity were measured in-situ with HORIBA U-10 water quality checker, while TDS was measured with HACH meter. Other 19 parameters were analyzed in the laboratory following APHA (1998) standard method. Students-T test and Snedecor's F-Distribution were adopted to analyze data at 0.05%. Result shows that BOD , Cadmium, Chromium, Ammonia, 5Phosphate, Chloride, Nitrate, Oil and Grease were above Standard recommended by DPR and NESREA for all industries. Temperature, TSS, Lead, Ammonia, Vanadium and Phosphate concentrated highest at the point of wastewater discharged (BE2), signifying obvious effects of the industrial activities on the Bonny estuary, other parameters (pH, Turbidity, Conductivity, BOD , Cu, Cr, Cl, Nitrate, Fe, Cd, Oil and Gas) had highest before the point of 5 wastewater discharge is influenced by the flowing water; exposing the estuary resources to potential risk. There is a statistical significant relationship between sample station BE1 and BE2 at 0.05%. It is therefore important to continuously monitor industrial activities in the area to protect end users.
