Population Mobility and Dynamics of Street Vendors in Dar es Salaam and Coast Regions of Tanzania
Michael John Haule – January 2019 – Page No.: 11-19

Population mobility, particularly among street vendors, is experienced in all urban centres world over. Some of the movements include those from city centres outwards to the peri-urban and the adjacent rural areas. The reverse human movements are sometimes also vastly experienced but they are not a focus of this paper.
In the quest for knowledge about population migration and population mobility of street vendors from other regions of Tanzania to Dar es Salaam and Coast regions necessitated for an analysis to be done on the sources of migrations, i.e. regions from which they originated, through which they settled for the first time, call it transitional regions; to the permanent settlement areas, i.e. destination. The analysis was done by levels of education and types of business they engaged in.
A survey was conducted in Dar es Salaam and the Coast regions among 100 street vendors in 10 centres located along the Morogoro road; whereby 10 respondents were interviewed at each centre. Data were processed using the Statistical Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) deploying descriptive statistics.
The paper, therefore, seeks to identify the existing patterns of population mobility; and based on the characteristics of the migrants, who are street vendors, uncover the existing relationship between human population mobility and the pace of urbanization.
The main findings of the study indicated that mobility of street vendors was highly influenced by presence of business opportunities which enhanced urban growth denoted by emergence of urbanism. The mobility demonstrated a three stage process, i.e. moving away from the source, living in transitional centre (regional town) prior to moving to Dar es Salaam and Coast Region, i.e. destination. Dar es Salaam had the highest levels of street vendors’ internal mobility with dominance of intra-urbanmobility. Men and women aged 30 years and above constituted the majority of the street vendors migrants in Tanzania.

Is Human Freedom Conditional?

Adilya Zhilgildina – January 2019 Page No.: 20

The philosophical concept of human freedom is a discussion mired in controversy and mystery, viewed as it is from both religious and scientific perspectives.
Genetic and neurobiological research has shown our nature and behaviour to be governed by our brain processes and genetics. Psychologists and sociologists view our actions as somewhat mechanical, although done for real reasons of which we are unawareand which go beyond our conscious control.[1] The lack of scientific consensus as to whether human freedom results from nature or nurture encapsulates the philosophical concept of determinism, which reveals that both determine human behaviour.[2]

Globalization: Is African Women’s Reproductive Health Getting Better or Worse? The Nigerian Experience

Titilayo Cordelia Orsaremi – January 2019 Page No.: 21-27

Beyond the economy; information and communication technology; politics; and even cultural differences between nations human reproduction in Africa has much implications for women’s participation in the process of globalization which is created and shaped by both gender. Accounting for social change in any human society implies a recognition of some relatively stable social and cultural elements. African women’s participation in the process of globalization is, to a large extent determined by their traditional sex role and their reproductive health especially because child bearing remains a vital function of the women. At the same time, globalization is expected to help improve the general well-being of men and women as global citizens. Hence the gate-keeping role of the government of any nation in the process of globalization is critical. This paper examines and assesses the efforts of the Nigerian government towards ensuring the reproductive health of women and girls by tapping into global best practices; and ensuring women’s active participation in the process of globalization. It uses the qualitative method, to analyse some indicators in the key reproductive health related policies, documents and practices in Nigeria against the recommendations of the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and other key international and regional instruments to which Nigerian is signatory. It evaluates the level and quality of implementation of these instruments and documents in order to ascertain the effects of the government’s effort at enhancing Nigerian women’s reproductive health and ensuring their valued contribution to the globalization process. The analysis reveals the negative effect of the lack of domestication of CEDAW on women’s reproductive rights and reproductive health; a wide gap between existing policies and their implementation; and the resultant generally poor outcome of Nigerian women’s reproductive health especially in the rural areas. In conclusion, the paper argues for a genuine domestication of international best practices in addressing the socio-cultural constraints to women’s reproductive rights in Nigeria so as to achieve the desired women’s reproductive health and increase their chances of actively contributing to the process of globalization from their little corners of the world no matter how remote.

Problems of Juridical in the Implementation of Housing Procurement Agreement Between Developer And Consumers in Kartasura

Novendri Amiruddin, Moch Najib Imanullah, Yudho Taruno Muryanto – January 2019 Page No.: 28-34

This study has purpose to examine and analyze juridical problems in the implementation of housing procurement agreements between developers and consumers. The research method in this study was empirical legal research, by conducting research on legislation related to the application of practices in the community, in the context of housing purchases through developers with the community. The results of the study concluded that in buying and selling houses between developers and consumers must be based on strict and open laws starting from brochures or information about home sales, in the initial implementation of the agreement in the form of Deed of Sale and Purchase Agreement to be made by and before public officials continued until the name behind the stage before the Land Deed Maker Officer (PPAT). However, there were still many obstacles in the practice that developers do not fulfill the principle of legal certainty and the high demand for housing by the community. The phenomenon that occurs is the buyer still lacks understanding and does not know his rights as a buyer or consumer. Thus it is necessary to increase the quality of services and clear and explicit information from the Developer/ developer to buyers or consumers so that there are no more things consumers are harmed.

Boko Haram Cross-Border Insurgency and Humanitarian Situation in South-eastern Niger Republic

Labbo Abdullahi and Umar Farouk Mohammed- January 2019 Page No.: 35-40

Boko Haram started as a local group operating within the boundaries of Borno State in Nigeria. Not quite long, the group transformed into a regional insurgent organisation with global linkages and funding. The phenomenon became a trans-national disaster within the region of the Lake Chad Basin, especially across Nigeria-Niger border. The north-eastern Nigerians (Borno and Yobe States) and south-eastern Nigeriens (Diffa and Zinder Regions) were seriously affected by the activities of the group across borderlines. Hundred thousands of people were displaced; and consequently, the problems of refugees, internally displaced persons and returnees in Diffa and Zinder became humongous. Through content analysis of the existing literature and oral data, this paper examined humanitarian crisis in Diffa and Zinder consequent on cross-border insurgency. It is observed that, there are linkages between Boko Haram insurgency and humanitarian crisis in Diffa on one hand, and humanitarian problems in Zinder, on the other. The paper discovered that between 2015 and 2017, more than 252,305 Nigerians and Nigeriens have been in Diffa and Zinder suffering from the stigmatization of refugees, internally displaced persons and returnees. It is equally observed that, little of the needed humanitarian interventions have been achieved; because, the interventions by the Governments of Nigeria and Niger are not commensurate with the sufferings of the Boko Haram victims in Diffa and Zinder. Therefore, the paper calls for a Nigeria-Niger Inter-governmental Humanitarian Agency to cater for the needs of the victims.

Adult Literacy Uncovered and the Need for Equal Educational Opportunity for All

Muhammad Alkali – January 2019 Page No.: 41-44

Nigeria is signatory to the universal declaration on human rights which listed among other things the right to educate as one of the fundamental right of citizens. Right from our national policy on education to the government and societies general attitudes to special adults in the literary arrangement, there is a glaring deficiency and lack of commitment in carrying these segments of our neglected society along. Available statistics shows that the segment accounts for over 25 million, which shows that this mass of citizens had all this while been neglected, abandoned and prevented from contributing to the socio economic development of the nation, rather they are made of no relevance and a menace to the society, to the shame of a great country like Nigeria. This paper therefore seeks to draw the attention of government, the society and all concerned to the need to redress this anomaly and rather turn this ugly trend to the benefit of those concerns and the nation in general.

Analysis of Education Policy with Reference to Teacher Education using BOS Framework: An Example

Dr. Amina Noor – January 2019 Page No.: 45-53

This study serves an example for researchers to use the concept of Blue Ocean Strategy (BOS) in the analysis of education policy. To simplify the method, the study delimited and investigated the directives for teacher education and training from the policy documents. To ensure a consistent, the study first identified some factors on adapting six paths of the first principle of BOS along with three set rules for interpretation. The second analyzed sample policy documents after testing on previous education policy. The analysis reveals that many policy directives were in line with BOS, e.g., inter-provincial collaboration across the training institutions, assessment of teachers’ needs, standards, quality of material, incentives, specialized and diverse practice-based training. The planning of these training should be on relevance, curriculum based and a continued process. The participation of stakeholders, community, donors and public-private partnership is also recommended to maintain the quality and resources for training.

Mobility Experience of Urban People: An Interpretative Study on Street Hawking Activities in the Urban Spaces of Dhaka City

Abontika Sara Israt – January 2019 Page No.: 54-60

This paper highlights the issues and problems associated with mobility and accessibility relating to informal street hawking in the urban spaces of Dhaka city. Mobility and accessibility is the foremost concern of a place that acts as a direction for the passer by. This is one of features that have a significant impact on users’ perception. The urban informal sector is a vibrant section of the urban economy worldwide. An organized street hawking in the urban spaces could be part of city precedence for the benefit of the city community. To evaluate the influence of mobility and accessibility in using the urban public spaces a multiple sources of evidence, which included the questionnaire survey and physical observation, were carried out in two study areas in Dhaka city. This study used a case study approach to make a comprehensive understanding of the current condition of street hawking in the city. Good accessibility is directly related to the uses’ thoughts and experiences; however, these elements could not cast a positive light on the walking or selling experience for this study. This study revealed that poor accessibility is a major hindrance affecting the use of the pedestrian environment of Dhaka city. The findings reveled across the case studies confirmed by the condition where poor facilities are seen. This study shown 50.8% of the respondents felt there are several problems with the walk ability, street view, traffic congestion and parking space and so on. Data synthesis indicates that, there is no noteworthy difference between questionnaire and observation survey to perceive accessibility issues. The findings discovered that the studied areas are in a vulnerable condition according to the identified issues. As vehicular space increases, pedestrian allocated space decreases resulting in pedestrian marginalization from city spaces and increased traffic congestion, accident and other fatalities.

Influence of School Environmental Variables on Students’ Performance in Junior Secondary School Mathematics in Gwer-East Local Government Area of Benue State, Nigeria

Tertindi NAAKAA, Joshua Abah ABAH, Gabriel Terfa ATONDO – January 2019 Page No.: 61-70

This study examined the influence of school environmental variables on students’ performance in Junior Secondary School mathematics in Gwer-East Local Government Area of Benue State. The study adopted an expo-facto design. A sample of 120 Junior Secondary School II students from ten schools was drawn out of a population of 3,482 JSS II students from Gwer-East Local Government Area of Benue State, Nigeria. A validated 20-item Influence of Environmental Variables on Students Performance Questionnaire (IEVSPQ) was used to collect data. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the four research questions raised for the study. The result revealed that nearness of school to noisy facilities has a negative influence on the performance of mathematics students in Junior Secondary Schools. Classroom size, library facilities and power supply influences the performance of mathematics students in Junior Secondary School to a high extent. It was recommended among others that school environmental variables should be taken into consideration in the siting and running of schools in order to enhance the students’ performance in Junior Secondary School mathematics.

A Functional Perspective of Education as the Bedrock of National Development in Nigeria

ABOLARIN Isaiah Ola – January 2019 Page No.: 75-80

True education is that in which learners are equipped with the ability to perceive accurately, think clearly, and act effectively. This equipping is accomplished via the three domains of education: cognitive, affective and sensory. In other words, education is said to be effective when learners acquire knowledge, develop skills, and adopt values. Education that fails to address these three domains cannot bring about significant development either for the individual or the society at large. Reports of a continuous downward trend in the quality of education have been a major concern for stakeholders for more than three decades. The deficiencies of the Nigerian education system could possibly be attributed to a faulty understanding of the components, goals and essence of education because the overriding perspective of education held by each society and culture determines the approach, plan and policies put in place to facilitate the educational process. This study therefore considered the components and goals of education, the difference between schooling and education, and the relationship between course of study and education. Using a plethora of books, articles and internet publications, the study analyzed different perspectives on education, its components and goals, with the intent of bringing forth a clear understanding of a functional education system. This approach is hinged on the assumption that a better understanding will lead to a re-appraisal of the current system of education in Nigeria in relation to its genuine alignment to the much touted desire for national development. The paper concluded that education can only be described as excellent when individuals and their societies are positively impacted by the knowledge acquired. Absence of tangible national development in terms of productivity of various sectors and poor standard of living, porous methods of handling crime and anti-social behavior, corruption and bad governance are clear indicators of a dysfunctional system of education. A system of education that fails to have positive impact on society may have succeeded at making people literate but has woefully failed in getting them educated. This study therefore recommended that stakeholders in the education sector be given proper orientation on what functional education is and how such can be adopted and utilized for national development.

Price Earning Growth Ratio as an Effective Tool in selection of Stocks for Investment – Evidence from Midcap IT Stocks Listed in NSE India

Dr. P. A. Mary Auxilia- January 2019 Page No.: 81-83

Investing in stocks is considered very risky if careful analysis of the company’s financial data is not done. Company’s credit worthiness and performance can be analyzed by examining the profit and loss account, balance sheet and cash flow statement. But an easiest tool available to determine the best stocks for investment is PEG (Price earnings to growth) ratio. In this context the research is done to find whether PEG ratio is an effective tool in selecting stocks for investment. Mid cap IT stocks listed in NSE India are selected for the study and PEG ratio is calculated before investment based on EPS CAGR and PE ratio. The performance of the stocks was tracked for five years and the data has been analyzed. The percentage return on investment is compared with market return to determine the efficiency of investment. The study proves that PEG ratio is an effective tool for investment as stocks with PEG less than 1 have given remarkably higher returns compared to the market return. Retail investors can use PEG ratio than PE ratio to identify stocks for investment with higher returns.

Porous Borders, Small Arms Proliferation, and Insecurity in Oke-Ogun Area of Oyo State, Nigeria

Adewoyin, Solomon Ademola – January 2019 Page No.: 84-89

Border security is critical and a necessity for the protection of lives and properties within a given territory. Nigeria land borders have become free entry and exit points for smugglers of all manner of contraband goods such as small arms who carry out their illicit activities with little or no reservations. Irrespective of where the border is located within the country and its geographic nature, porosity is a common feature shared by all borders in the country. The connection between porous borders, arms proliferation, and insecurity can be explained thus: porous borders paves ways for free flow of all forms of small arms in and out of Nigeria and most of this arms are found in the hands of non-state actors who use these weapons to ferment trouble and make the society hostile, ungovernable, and insecure. Nigeria’s extreme porous borders are a major cause of national security threat and may remain so for some time. This is because these borders both land and marine apart from being vast, are inadequately policed.

Communal Conflicts in Ghana: A Case Study of the Dagbon Conflict

Winfred Kanda – January 2019 Page No.: 98-111

The main purpose of the study was to examine the Dagbon conflict as a type of Communal Conflict in Ghana. A descriptive survey was used for the study based on qualitative research method. Purposive sampling method was used to collect data. Data was also sourced from books and journal articles. The study revealed that there was non-adherence to the laid down succession plan, political interference and socio-economic problems as the main causes of the Dagbon Conflict. Also, output of productivity was affected badly. Even though there is relative peace, there is still tension between the leadership of the Abudu and Andani gates after several mediation efforts were used to maintain peace. The study therefore recommended that, politicians should desist from meddling in the traditional affairs of Dagbon Kingdom; government should create an enabling environment for investors to invest. The government and traditional authority of Dagbon Kingdom should organize the performance of the final funeral rites of the late chiefs to pave way for the selection and enskinment of the new Ya Na and finally leadership of the two gates should come to agreement and bury their differences in the interest of peace.

Impact of Social Networking Sites Usage on Students’ Performance

Diluxshy Ravichandran – January 2019 Page No.: 116-119

The primary focus of the students must be education, but unfortunately today’s students emphasize these sites that can be a complete waste of time. Social networks were just an electronic connection between users, but unfortunately they became addictive to students, adolescents and even adults. This paper presents the impact of social networks on students’ performance. Facebook destroys the future and academic carrier of school students. At the same time, it also aims to recognize the importance of using social networking sites by students in their academic and extra-curricular success with the help of a survey of data collection among more than 200 students from different schools in Trincomalee. The results of this study found an understanding of how students use online social networking sites, the time they spend and the type of information required and their overall performance. The study also makes recommendations on how to use online networks to improve academic objectives.

Beyond Public Acknowledgement to Action: The Role of Government in Supporting Recovery from Trauma for Indigenous People as a Result of Past Policies of Forcible Separation and Assimilation

Karen Menzies – January 2019 Page No.: 120-127

Ten years have passed since Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd offered his famous apology to the generations of Indigenous Australians who were removed from their families and communities when they were children as the result of racist and ill-informed government policy guided by the principles of assimilation (Russell, 2018). At this time, the importance of acknowledgement and formal government apology was becoming better understood, not only in Australia but also in other colonized nations, as essential to public understanding of the collective, historical and intergenerational trauma that exists within Indigenous communities and facilitating healing (operationalized by the Australian government as improvement in health, education and employment outcomes). Formal acknowledgement opens the way for the nation to bear witness to its shared national history, and to prioritise government action in response.
The importance of societal endorsement is central to the two fundamental elements in the recovery from trauma. The purpose of ‘public acknowledgement’ seeks to gain public recognition of harm and define the experience or event as trauma at a societal level because the reaction from the wider society has a powerful influence and can ultimately shape the resolution of trauma (Herman, 1992,). The next critical element in the recovery of trauma is ‘community action’ whereby the society takes responsibility for the provision of assistance and support services to aid the recovery (Herman, 1992,). The success of an individual or group’s recovery from trauma can be measured by two things: ‘an accepting climate of public opinion which fosters the integration of trauma survivors and an absence of a rejecting climate of opinions compounding their isolation’ (Herman, 1992, p.71).

Dual Contraception Prevalence among Seropositive Women in Discordant Marital Relationships in Nyatike Sub-County, Kenya

Ouma Mark Okungu Kadenyo, Dr. Paul Obino Ong’anyi, Prof. Alfred Agwanda Otieno – January 2019 Page No.: 128-137

HIV-discordant couples are faced with dual problem of preventing unwanted pregnancy and HIV transmission to uninfected partner. Dual contraception involving consistent use of condoms to prevent STIs/HIV infection and another more effective modern contraceptive for pregnancy prevention has been recommended to offer dual protection for discordant couples. However a large proportion of new HIV infections and unwanted pregnancies in Sub-saharan Africa still occur in stable HIV-discordant partnerships and Nyatike Sub-county in Migori County, Kenya is no exception. The objectives of this study were to find out the prevalence of dual contraception, and to find out the most common form of dual contraception among seropositive women in discordant marital relationships in Nyatike Sub-county in Migori County, Kenya. A cross-sectional survey design was employed. Fourteen health facilities were purposively sampled within Nyatike Sub-county. A total of 174 randomly sampled seropositive women in discordant marital relationships were subjected to interviewer administered semi-structured questionnaire. Two focused group discussions (FGDs) involving fourteen seropositive women randomly sampled were conducted. Additionally, the study involved 28 in-depth interviews with fourteen randomly sampled seronegative men in discordant relationships and fourteen purposively sampled healthcare providers (key informants). Quantitative data was analyzed using frequencies and percentages while Content analysis was used to analyze qualitative data. Tables were used to present research results. The study revealed low dual contraception prevalence 29.3%. Condom plus injections was the most used form of dual contraception to offer dual protection at 24.1%. Partner refusal, perceived and real side effects, religious beliefs and desire for biological child were the main barriers to dual contraception use. The study recommends formulation of HIV integrated FP programs that intensify efforts in improving knowledge of dual contraception use among seropositive women and its critical health benefits, coupled with encouraging constructive male partner communication and engagement in order to increase dual contraception uptake.

The Relationship between Family type and Parental involvement on the Student’s Deviant Behaviour in Secondary Schools in Kericho County, Kenya

Janet Surum – January 2019 Page No.: 138-141

There have been growing concerns about the increasing manifestations of deviant behaviours manifesting themselves in the form of maladjusted behaviours among students in Kenya. Such behaviours have continued to lower the academic achievement among learners and the effects go on to affect the nation. These behaviours have an impact on the kind of citizens the country will eventually have and has continued to produce. It is important to shed more light on the causal factors hence find a defined way of dealing with this behaviour by determining its antecedents. The purpose of this study was to address this gap by examining the influence of family type and parental involvement on the student deviant behaviours in Kericho County, Kenya. The objective of this study was to identify the variables of the family type and parental involvement, and their influence on the student deviant behaviour. The study was anchored on Urie Bronfenbrenner’s Bioecological Theory of Human Development. A sample size of 300 respondents was used from a target study population size [N] of 125650.These were students studying in secondary schools of Kericho County. The study adopted a quantitative research design. Stratified random sampling was used to select schools included in the study, the informants of the study were selected purposively. The data for the study was obtained through questionnaires. The reliability of the instrument was ascertained using a pilot study on four schools which would not be included in the final study. Cronbach Alpha’s measure of internal consistency yielded a reliability coefficient of 0.84. Expert judgment and peer reviews were used to determine validity of the research instruments. Multiple regression was used as the data analysis method. Results of the study indicated a positive and significant relationship between the family type, parental involvement and the prevalence of the student deviant behaviour. The implication therefore is, parents ought to be sensitized on their critical role as members of the family unit in alleviating student deviant behaviours and thereby promoting academic achievement. If parents showed more involvement in the lives of their children both at home and at school, then deviant behaviour would be alleviated or minimized. The study recommends that the family type and parental involvement must be considered if at all the student deviant behaviours in Kericho County should minimize.

Analysis of the Implementation of Voluntary Assets Disclosure with Final Rates (VAD-FR) Policy in Indonesia

Ayun Fitri Hastuti, Dr. Isharyanto, S.H, M.Hum, Prof. Dr. I Gusti Ayu Ketut Rachmi Handayani, S.H., M.M – January 2019 Page No.: 142-147

This study discusses the Voluntary Assets Disclosure with Final Rates Policy imposed after the Tax Amnesty (TA) policy in Indonesia. The community considers this policy to be the second Tax Amnesty volume, but this policy further addresses the restorative aspects and aims to provide taxpayers with the opportunity to carry out tax payments before the tax team checks them. This study uses a literature study that is sourced from the Government Regulations and applicable Minister of Finance Regulations. The results of the study show that one of the objectives of the TA program that has passed is to anticipate the increasingly open information on Indonesia’s economic transactions, so that there is a need for special programs to improve tax compliance. Minister of Finance Regulation Number 165 / PMK.03 / 2016 still provides incentives and return opportunities to improve the level of tax compliance for taxpayers. To anticipate this, it is recommended that all taxpayers, both those who have joined the Tax Amnesty and those who do not, still have hidden assets to immediately utilize the VAD-FR procedure because this program has no time period. The low level interest of people who follow this policy has made the Ministry of Finance, especially the Tax Directorate, provide incentives and intensify socialization of the VAD-FR policy.

Acquisition Modes of Collections in the Addabor and Centenary Libraries of the Tamale and Bagabaga Colleges of Education in Ghana

Abubakari Iddirisu – January 2019 Page No.: 156-162

This paper sought to explore the acquisition modes of collections in the libraries of Tamale and Bagabaga Colleges of Education in Ghana. The population consisted of all the library staff in both colleges. In all, the sixteenlibrary staffs of the two libraries were use as respondents. Centenary Library has four library staff and Addabor library has twelve library staff. The entire population was used for the study. Archival and structured interview were used as data collection instruments/tools of the study. The study findings revealed that the two libraries largely build their collections through donations aside the few collections from purchase, exchange, interlibrary loan and consortia. The findings also indicated that donation was the most infectious (bookworm, termites, fungi, silverfish, rodents, booklice) acquisition mode in the Addabor and Centenary libraries.
The study concludes that both libraries largely build their collections through donations and gifts. The purpose of the study was to add to academic knowledge of the field, fill literature gap, serve as a policy document to acquisition librarians, Ministry of Education and Princof in their bid to building relevant collections to meet user needs. The recommendations from the study which include recruitment of more professional librarians, training of acquisition librarians, provision of enough funding, provision of enough infrastructure, provision of preservation chemicals for the treatment of infected collections and assertiveness in the refusal of being dumping grounds for irrelevant collections. Collections of libraries are acquired to meet the objective of advancing knowledge and wisdom to promote sustainable and comprehensive education for national development.

Effect of Study Environment towards Learning

Abubakar Ayuba Fusami – January 2019 Page No.: 163-169

The study seeks to unveil the effect of students’ study environment on their learning considering productive performance of school students study environment when compared to unproductive study environment. School learning environment is limited by a number of factors employed to address the relationships between characteristics students’ learning environment in the context of the individual student. Do specific nature of students’ study environments within which students learn (such asstudy location, study time, silence, noise etcetera) have any real impact on the quality of learning outcomes or will students do well irrespective of their study environments? Such questions are not just theoretically interesting, but also have a practically significant for school educators seeking to understand the impact for their design approach to decisions on students’ study environment. The research uses questionnaire in data collection where random sampling technique was administered to obtain the views of the students with regard to their study environment. The result shows significance to some of these factorswhile others do not.

Management of Financial Inclusion Strategy in Nigeria

Alphonsus Chukwu Ajugwe, PhD. – January 2019 Page No.: 182-191

Financial Inclusion is becoming a very important component in the financial system because of its obvious advantages as a stimulus to economic growth and stability. This underpins the fact that Financial Inclusion is regarded as panacea for poverty alleviation in the developing countries. To this end, the Central bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been on the driver’s seat for the introduction, projection, and the success of the scheme in Nigeria.
The aim of this paper is to critically examine and to illustrate different strategies adopted by the CBN in particular and other governmental agencies in stimulating Financial Inclusion, the extent of the success of the scheme, its positive impact on the economy and challenges facing full realization of the objectives of Financial Inclusion in Nigeria.

The Relationship between HIV and AIDS Impact and Services Delivery among Moi University Staff

Dr. Naftal Michira Nyang’ara – January 2019 Page No.: 192-195

The unprecedented effect of HIV and AIDS in Africa cannot be over-emphasized as it takes its toll mainly on the active age population of 15-49 years. This age group is the main workforce of any nation and, unfortunately, the most vulnerable to infection of HIV. There has been growing concern about the devastating impact of HIV and AIDS in many workplaces. In response, many universities have developed university specific HIV and AIDS policies for impact mitigation in the workplace. Moi University is a public institution with a large workforce hence targeted in the current study. Realizing the negative impact that HIV and AIDS has on workplaces and the importance of having an HIV and AIDS workplace policy, this study sought to determine the relationship between HIV and AIDS impact and services delivery by the staff of Moi University. The study, whose main concern was about services delivery at Moi University, targeted teaching staff, non-teaching staff and senior management. To achieve this objective, the study used ex-post facto research design and stratified sampling technique in the selection of the study sample. A study sample made up of 330 participants was used for the study. The study utilized both qualitative and quantitative methods in data collection. These included Workplace Testing Questionnaire, document analysis and semi-structured interviews. Primary data was collected by use of self-administered questionnaires and interview schedules, while secondary data was collected from libraries. The study used the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS v 22.0) program to analyze the data collected. Qualitative data was analyzed thematically through coding. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used. The descriptive statistics included frequencies and means. Correlation analysis was used to test hypotheses (to test the relationship between the independent and dependent variables). The findings revealed that 25.2% agreed and 17.0% of the participants strongly agreed that they knew of a staff member who had died from HIV. It also emerged that 37.2% of the participants believed that HIV had led to loss of tacit skills. The analysis revealed that there was a significant positive relationship between teaching staff and non-teaching staff (r= .657), senior management and non-teaching staff (.529) senior management and teaching staff (r= .479). The study concluded that HIV and AIDS had impact on services delivery. Following this, the study recommended more involvement of senior top level university managers for clear understanding that HIV and AIDS is a workplace problem with serious consequences on services delivery. The study is, therefore, expected to be of great significance to universities in addressing the impact of HIV and AIDS on services delivery.

Teachers’ Attitude as a Correlate of Students’ Academic Performance

Ekperi, Paul Madukwe, Ude Onwuka, Wike Young Nyejirime – January 2019 Page No.: 205-209

The classroom climate which is often times set by the teacher is determined by the teacher’s attitude. Attitude as a major determinant of a person’s behavior influences the way a teacher relates with the students and thus affects students’ academic performance. The study examined teacher’s attitude as a correlate of students’ academic performance in geography. Descriptive survey design was adopted and a sample size of four hundred selected from a population of nine hundred and sixty-eight using the Taro Yamane sample size formula. Two research questions and a research hypothesis were proposed in line with the study objectives. Average Mean Score was used to analyze responses for the research questions while Multiple Regression Analysis was used to test the research hypotheses. The findings show that attitude of teachers correlated positively and significantly with students’ academic performance. Poor government attitude to teachers, lack of job satisfaction, poor remuneration and delayed salary, students’ learning interest and absence of teaching materials/instructional aid were found to influence the attitude of teachers. The paper strongly recommends among others thatsalaries and remuneration of teachers should be paid as at when due; teachers should go beyond Instruction and focus on the interpersonal aspects of teaching; constant in-service training should be provided for teachers and also provision should be made for teachers to attend educational conferences both locally and internationally as this would help them grow on the job.

Conditional and Unconditional Cash Transfer Programs: The Recent Experiences around the World

Omar Ben Haman – January 2019 Page No.: 210-219

Cash transfer programs have become the most popular government welfare paradigm for many developing countries in this new millennium. Cash transfer programs run by providing a small cash transfer to the parents (very often those below the poverty line) could be contingent on certain conditions, such as sending children to school or visiting doctors regularly. Cash transfer programs that have been implemented in many countries across the world, aim to meet basic human development targets. In recent times, cash transfer programs have been carried out in 52 countries. This paper summarises the experiences of some countries with cash transfer programs, analysing and discussing program components and design—such as, payments mechanisms and beneficing identification, as well as selecting lessons learned. Also, attention will be given to show the connectedness between cash transfer programs and gender perspective. This paper will also shed light on cash transfer program as a mechanism for social inclusion. Finally, the most common criticisms of cash transfer programs will be given. This paper attempted to rely on reports and articles, especially by the scholars working on cash transfer programs who have produced several studies since 2000. This paper serves as a useful reference for researchers and academics working on the cash transfer programs.

A Review of ‘Doctor Maria Montessori’s Handbook’ By Dr. Maria Tecla Artemisia Montessori

Janet Surum, Elvis Omondi Kauka – January 2019 Page No.: 220-224

Maria Tecla Artemesia Montessori was born of Alessandro Montessori and Renilde Stoppani in 1870 in the town of Chiaravalle, Italy. Both parents were well educated; Allesandro was an accountant while Renilde is described an avid reader. After her Secondary Education she was admitted to the medical school of the University of Rome in 1890, becoming the first woman to join a medical school in Italy. She qualified as a doctor in July 1896. Dr Montessori worked as a researcher at the psychiatric clinic of the University of Rome, as a volunteer in 1987, a stint that led her to develop a deep interest in the needs of children with learning disabilities. In 1901 Montessori developed her studies of educational philosophy and anthropology, and subsequently lectured and taught students at different levels and age. In 1902 she enrolled for the philosophy degree course at the University of Rome where she studied theoretical and moral philosophy, history of philosophy, and psychology, but did not graduate. She also pursued independent study in anthropology and educational philosophy, conducted observations and experimental research in elementary schools. Later on, she applied them to her Casa dei Bambini (The children’s house), a novelty learning centre she established for children in 1907. By 1909, Doctor Montessori gave her first training course in her new approach to around 100 students which was followed by massive Montessori movements in Europe, India, U.S.A and later on, all over the world.

Effect of Transformational Leadership Style on Performance of Savings and Credit Cooperative Society: A Case of Imarisha Savings and Credit Cooperative Society in Kericho County, Kenya

Joyce Chepkoech Rere and Kipkorir Sitienei Simon – January 2019 Page No.: 225-227

Leadership is known globally for the most productive performance. Performances of organisations are directly affected by leadership styles. In Kenya the use of leadership is a major challenge in the management of Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies and thus affecting performance. The study was aimed at assessing effect of leadership on performance of savings and credit cooperative society: a case of Imarisha savings and credit cooperative society in Kericho County, Kenya. The objective of the study was to establish the effect of transformational leadership style on performance. The study was important to provide knowledge on the effect of leadership on performance of savings and credit cooperative society and provide a solution to mismanagement and thus improved performance. The main theory of the study was transformational theory. The study covered the effect of leadership on performance. The study used descriptive research design. The population comprised of all staff of Imarisha savings and credit cooperative society. Simple random sampling was used. A sample of 27 management staff and 36 support staff was drawn from the purposively selected savings and credit cooperative society and used in the study. The study used two sets of questionnaires one for management staff and another for support staff. The questionnaires were piloted to validate and test its reliability before the actual data collection. Data was collected through administration of two sets of self administered questionnaires to the selected respondents. The data was processed and analyzed using descriptive statistics with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) Version 20 and presented using frequency distribution tables and charts. An analysis of the major findings in study indicated that coefficient of determination (R2) is 0.790 therefore about 79.0% of the variation in effect of leadership styles on performance is explained by transformational leadership style. The study recommended that management staff should be trained on new methods of leadership so as to keep up with current leadership styles. It was hoped that the findings would be of significance to organisational leadership of Imarisha Savings and Credit Cooperative Society, World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), KUSCCO, SACCO Society Regulation Authority-Kenya (SASRA), Ministry of co-operative development, Non-Governmental organizations, policy makers, researchers, and managers of financial institutions.

Relationship between Principals’ Transformational Leadership Styles and Teachers’ Job Satisfaction in Secondary Schools in Gatundu North Sub County Kiambu County, Kenya

Naomi Wairimu Kariga and Kositany Conrad – January 2019 Page No.: 228-231

This research project explored the link between transformational style of leadership adopted by principals in secondary schools in Gatundu North Sub-County and the teachers’ job satisfaction. The principal leadership style was viewed as behaviour in a working process, which influences all school relevant performances. Teachers’ job satisfaction refers to the affective attitude of teachers towards their role, derived from the evaluation of characteristics of the job itself. The aim of this research was to define relationship between school principal transformational leadership style and teachers’ job satisfaction. The study sought to establish whether principals’ transformational styles stimulate teacher job satisfaction. The study was guided by the Herzberg’s two-factor motivator theory, to test the levels of job satisfaction among teachers under transformational leadership. The dependent variable for the study was teachers’ job satisfaction while the independent variable was principals’ transformational leadership style. The study used correlation design to collect data from the study population of 34 principals and 590 teachers from all the 34 secondary schools within the region. The principals were selected using stratified random sampling while teachers were selected through purposive random sampling. The sample size comprised of 10 principals and 130 teachers. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) was used to collect information from the samples. The data collected was scored and coded for statistical analysis. Both descriptive and inferential statistics was used. Descriptive statistics was analyzed using frequencies, means and percentages and presented in tables and figures. The hypothesis was tested at α = 0.05 using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. The results provided evidence that there was a significant relationship between principals’ transformational leadership style and teachers’ job satisfaction. A major recommendation of the study was that the board of institutions should integrate programmes such as seminars, workshops in order to sharpen the leadership skills of their principals. This will assist the principals adopt the leadership styles that would enhance the satisfaction of teachers on their job.

The public service in Sub Saharan Africa has always been the tool available to governments for the implementation of their developmental agenda. In this direction, civil servants constitute a vital force in the day to day functioning of the State. Cameroon somehow presents a startling deviation from this standard as civil servants freely combine public work life and political militancy. This paper from this perspective contends among other issues that the involvement of civil servants in partisan politics creates a precarious balance between productivity and performance in the civil service. The problem is that the thin divide between the civil service and political parties wears down the financial resources of the state. It is also observed that patrimonial political links contribute to break down the spirit of discipline, hard work, and meritocracy and encourages corrupt practices like, lack of accountability, bribery, nepotism, misappropriation and embezzlement of public funds. The end of the Federal System of Government in 1992 merged the Civil Servants of West and East Cameroons. The end result was that workers in the Public Sector became militants of the ruling party, Cameroon National Union (CNU)/ Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM). The Public Service was politicised which made the re-emergence of Multipartym of 1990 impossible for opposition parties to win any major election.

The Central African Republic’s Conflict and Its Impact on Cameroon, 2002 – 2016

Ernest Dzelamonyuy, Prof. Simon Tata Ngenge – January 2019 Page No.: 256-261

The African continent holds an unenviable record of being one of the most conflict prone continents of the world. This trend began immediately after most of the countries in the continent attained independence in the 1960s. These conflicts necessitated the involvement of sub – regional, regional and international organisations and come with consequences for the particular country as well as its neighbours. The main aim of this paper is topresent the conflict in the Central African Republic and to examine its consequences on the neighbouring Cameroon. The aim here is to expose the spill over potential of African conflicts that are otherwise considered as internal. The paper is divided into three parts. Part one deals with a synoptic overview of the conflict drivers and its main protagonists. Part two deals with efforts towards its resolution while part three dwells on the consequences of the conflict on Cameroon.
The paper argues that internal conflicts in African states have spillover effects on neighbouring countries and have the potential of turning latent grievances in those neighbouring countries into full bloom conflicts. This was done through the use of primary and secondary sources in the form of interviews, documents, journals and conference resolutions. These were carefully examined to arrive at the findings of the paper which attest to the spillover quality of African conflicts.

Contemporary Issues Affecting the Rights and Obligations of Landlords under Extant Laws in Nigeria and England

Jonathan Ekperusi, ESQ. – January 2019 Page No.: 262-269

The rights and obligations of landlords in Nigeria have been affected by a series of legislative interventions and case law over the years. Every State in Nigeria has its own Landlord and Tenant Law. The application of the general principles of leasehold law reflects the context of the particular letting. In England as in Nigeria, there are many distinct statutory codes radically different in various respects, but with the general policy of limiting the rent that a landlord can collect, restricting his right to recover possession of premises at the end of a lease or during the term created, among others. In Nigeria, prior to the enactment of the Land Use Act 1978, leases and tenancies existed in contradistinction to freehold estates in land, in terms of duration and tenure, ranking next to freehold interests. The reduction of all interests in land to a right of occupancy by the Land Use Act marked a paradigm shift in nomenclature and largely tenure. Under the present system of landholding in Nigeria, a right of occupancy has the semblance of a lease while the leasehold interest is akin to a sublease. An assignment of a lease implies an assignment of the residue of the term while a transfer of a measure of same is known as an underlease. While the new forms of estate that can be created under the Land Use Act may be strange to the English Lawyer, the nature of leases and tenancies, the obligation of the parties thereto, and the mode of termination of same, among others, are still governed by the old common law principles and rules either in their original form or as modified by local statutes. The paper reveals that the law of landlord and tenant in England has evolved much more than where it is in Nigeria. The affinity between Nigeria and England, should encourage Nigeria to take advantage of robust developments in England, such as the duty on landlords not to engage in retaliatory evictions, the obligation on residential landlords not to let premises to illegal immigrants, and the liability of landlords for certain anti-social behaviour of their tenants. The device of ‘break clauses’ gives additional rights to landlords to recover demised premises earlier than anticipated. The paper addresses the dire need to check the activities of illegal immigrants across Nigerian borders and the residency status of persons in volatile areas like the North East region and certain hotspots in the North of Nigeria, as well as the menace of so-called Fulani cattle herders wreaking havoc in Nigerian Communities by legislation that imposes checks on landlords in the affected areas in allowing non-Nigerians to reside in their premises.

Women’s Family Rights in Islām: Issues and Solutions

Dr. Abu Nasar Mohammad Abdul Mabood – January 2019 Page No.: 270-274

Islām permits marriage to protect the sex from illegal use and make a sound, happy and peaceful family like a heaven practicing husband’s and wife’s duties and availing rights. So, Islām requires that the both have to treat each other with respect and love. Allāh refers to the bond of love and affection of a husband and wife in the Qur’ān;“And of His signs is, that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find repose in them, and He set between you affection and mercy, verily in this are signs for a people who ponder.” This determines the proper status of the wife in Islām. A husband must treat with his wife honorably, kindly and with mutual respect, behave gently one another, and take decision with mutual discussion. That is the family rights of women in Islām. The author attempts to focus in this paper the family rights of women in Islām and its implementation to our Muslim society and solutions.

Concept of Al-‘Amm (General) and Al-Khass (Specific) in the Glorious Qur’an: The Perspective of Shaykh ‘Abd Allah BnFoduye

Dr. Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Jos – January 2019 Page No.: 279-283

Muslims have from earliest times applied themselves not only to the message from Allah-the Qur’an-but also to its setting and framework, and the preoccupation with these ultimately developed into the sciences of or ‘knowledge’ about the Qur’an, known as “‘Ulumal-Qur’an.”
‘Ulum al-Qur’an (Qur’anic Sciences) covers many areas such as asbab al-Nuzul (causes of revelation), the knowledge of Makki and Madani revelations, the knowledge of the various forms (al-Ahruf) it was revealed in, the understanding of its al-Nasikhwa al-Mansukh abrogated rulings and verses, the knowledge of the various classifications of its verses (Muhkam and Mustashabih, ‘Amm (general) and Khass(specific), Mutlaq and Muqayyad among the others).Therefore, the paper attempts to discuss the definition of Qur’anic sciences, Scope of Qur’anic Sciences, Aim and Objectives of Qur’anic Sciences, and Significance of Qur’anic Sciences to the Muslim Ummah. Furthermore, the two concepts that are Al-Ammand Al-Khass among the various topics in the Qur’anic sciences will be discussed extensively under the perception or views of ShaykhAbd Allah BnFoduye. The analytical method is used while gathering data of this research.

Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Dynamics in the Administration of Public Organizations under the President Buhari’s Democratic Dispensation in Nigerian Health Sector

OBETA, Uchejeso; OBI, Mabel; GOYIN, Longul; OJO, James – January 2019 Page No.: 284-290

Abraham Maslow became one of the foremost spokesmen of humanistic psychology who emphasized the positive side of humanity. The theory of Hierarchy of needs made motivation and job satisfaction immensely popular and helpful in assessing administrative performance. Though some corrupt behaviours which includes bribery, misappropriation, nepotism, fraud, embezzlement, extortion, favoritism, rigging of elections, and falsification of voters register, over-invoicing, money laundering, examination malpractices, health professionals’ rivalry and security challenges such as Gbokoharamism, Herdmanisn, kidnapping and assassination exist in the current President Buhari administration with serious effects on the health sector, the Buhari administration has done a lot in consideration of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs ranging from physiological, safety, belongings, esteem and self – actualization needs with very high expectations in the health sector.The chance for another term for President Buhari could be an opportunity to accomplish the Maslow’s theory of hierarchy of needs among Nigerians and in Health sector in particular.

Criminal Responsibility of Subsidiaries That Causes State Loses

Rosiani Niti Pawitri, Adi Sulistiyono, Albertus Sentot Sudarwanto – January 2019 Page No.: 291-294

The existence of a State-Owned Enterprise (SOE’s) is an implementation of Article 33 of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia. Where it has a strategic position to improve people’s welfare. As time goes by, SOE’s are required to change so the company has high competitiveness and creativity in global competition, one of which is by forming a state-owned holding. The phenomenon of the formation of state-owned holding in Indonesia raises interesting problems related to the legal responsibility of state-owned subsidiaries which result in state losses whether it is charged with corruption or not. This research is conducted using normative legal research. Types of data used in this research are secondary data with primary and secondary legal material. Based on the results of the study it can be concluded that the criminal liability of state-owned subsidiaries that causes state losses in which the loss is a business loss cannot be snared by corruption. This is in line with the Constitutional Court Decision Number 62/PUU-XI/2013 provided that the directors have implemented business judgment rule as stipulated in Article 97 paragraph (5) of the Company Law.

A Philosophical Perspective on Death

Elvis Omondi Kauka – January 2019 Page No.: 313-315

This essay examines death from a preliminary Philosophical perspective by scrutinising the positive side of death. It infers that death is a cosmologically, socioeconomically and morally useful phenomenon. It also adduces to the fact that the most logical step to take in life is to accept death and prepare for it, instead of wallowing in endless fear. It is further deduced that death may not be the end of life if at all it is the case that humans are Hylemorphic beings. The essay limits itself to analysis, and part descriptions and prescriptions. The fact that death is an unavoidable but feared Phenomenon, this essay anticipates to open and motivate crucial discussions on the existential assimilation and serene embrace of death.

Manifestation of Aggressive Behaviour Based on Gender in Secondary Schools in Bungoma County, Kenya

Carolyne Otieno Wakoli – January 2019 Page No.: 316-322

Gender substitutes a structure of social practice that establishes relations of power, attitudes and hierarchies, not only among people, but also among groups and institutions, which would simply overcome the analysis or individual perception of being male or female. Studies done on adolescents indicate that there are gender differences in the manifestation of aggressive behaviour and these differences are more significant during adolescence than at any other stage in development. Further studies done indicate that boys are more likely to exhibit physically aggressive behaviours, while girls are more likely to exhibit relationally aggressive behaviours. Therefore, this study attempts to explain if there is a difference in manifestation of aggressive behavior based on gender in secondary schools in Bungoma County.

The Implementation of Pretrial Object Extention on Suspect Determination After the Constitutional Court Ruling No.21/PUU-XII/2014 Viewed from the Perspectives of Justice and Legal Certainty

Andhi Subangun, Prof. Dr. Supanto, S.H., M.Hum, Dr. Widodo Tresno Novianto, S.H., M.Hum – January 2019 Page No.: 323-331

This study investigated the implementation of pretrial object extension on suspect determination after the Constitutional Court Ruling No. 21/PUU-XII/2014 viewed from the perspctives of justice and legal certainty through pretrial decision.
This study is a categorized as normative study which analyzes various kind of pretrial decisions after Constitutional Court (also known as MK) Ruling No 21/PUU-XII/2014, whether the implementation of pretrial decision making has considered the principal of justice and the legal certainty.
This current study used cases approach, in which it was done by specifically examining and analyzing the cases that have become pretrial decision.
The results of the study informed that the implementation of pretrial judge’s decision after the emergence of Constitutional Court Ruling No.21/PUU-XII/2014, in the implementation of the pretrial judge’s decision after the Constitutional Court RulingNo. 21/PUU-XII/2014, there weresome decisions referred to the Constitutional Court (MKNo. 21/PUU-XII/2014) and some were not. Pretrial decisions referred to the Constitutional Court Ruling tended to provide a sense of justice and legal certainty sincethe pretrial judges had examined evidence possessed by law enforcement officers before deciding someone as a suspect regardless whether the results were granted or rejected.Meanwhile, pretrial decisions that did not refer toMK No. 21/PUU-XII/2014 tended not to give a sense of justice and legal certainty because judges questioned the matters outside of the evidence possessed by investigators so that this can lead to misuse of authority by pretrial judges. In the implementation of pretrial decisions, one another is sometimes contradictory, so it created legal uncertainty.
Given the above conditions, pretrial judges should consequently implement the Supreme Court Regulation (PERMA)No. 2 Year 2016 to create the same procedure and fair decision in pretrial case handling.

Psychological Effects of Soot Pollution on Academic Functional Capacity

Larry O. Awo, Enebi Y. Atanu, Anyahie A. Azunwo, and George Duru – January 2019 Page No.: 332-336

Empirical evidences on the psychological effects of sooth pollution due to gas flaring activities in the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria is hugely unknown. We examined the effects of exposure to soot pollution on academic functional capacity of staff and students of a Federal Polytechnic in Bonny Island, Rivers state, Nigeria. One hundred and sixty five (165) male and female participants aged 18-44 years (M= 29.36; SD = 8.14) took part in the study. Exposure to sooth pollution and academic functional capacity depletion were measured by means of questionnaires. Regression analysis results revealed that exposure to soot predicted academic functional capacity depletion, gender was also a predictor of academic functional capacity depletion, and academic functional capacity depletion was more among staff than students. Consistent exposure to soot disrupts teaching and learning activities in the Polytechnic. A call, is therefore made, for the minimization of gas flaring activities and soot pollution in academic towns in order to ensure a conducive environment for teaching and learning activities by staff and students.

Relationship between School Environment and Students’ Aggressive Behaviour in Bungoma County, Kenya

Carolyne Otieno Wakoli – January 2019 Page No.: 337-344

Adolescents spend much of their lives in activities associated with their school and the school’s social, psychological and learning climate all have a strong impact on the emotional and social development of young people. School climate refers to the atmosphere or ethos of a school, and the nature and quality of the interpersonal relationships and communication patterns within the school. It follows that the culture of a school clearly plays a role in shaping students’ experience, and research has emphasized the importance of developing a positive school climate in order to reduce school violence. This study was carried out to determine the relationship between the school environment and the students’ aggressive behaviour in Bungoma County in Kenya.

The Place of History in Health Care Service Delivery: How Useful to Nigeria’s Health Care System

Labbo Abdullahi – January 2019 Page No.: 350-354

History is a collection of records of the past happenings and experiences. Historians ask when, where and what happened in the past and historical records answer such questions satisfactorily. A number of epidemic and endemic diseases as well as illnesses and treatments occurred in the past upon which records are kept in various medical institutions and centres for historical researches. Health care practitioners ask such questions as when, where and how a disease or illness started and what type of treatments have been given over time. Historical records and oral interactions with patients answer such questions and throw light for further health care services. History also, reviews key issues in health care developments, provide insights into the challenges confronting health care delivery, bring out past mistakes including medical errors and make a compelling case for change. This article adopted qualitative approach and analyzed the extent to which history plays vital roles in health care service delivery. It is discovered that historical records are essential assets in ensuring that health care institutions and services are run effectively and efficiently. The records support not only clinical decision-making, but also health care policy-making in general and provide the reasons for the failures and successes of the past policies and services. Finally, the article shows how useful can the use of history be, in Nigeria’s health care system.
