Department of Political Science and Public Administration, Babcock University.

 

Abstract

Over the years, the dynamics of migration related activities in Nigeria continues to be intensified, motivated by different conditions at the fore front of which is globalization which has presented countless opportunities to the citizens, most especially on the path of the youths by bringing to their doorstep exposure to the numerous opportunities and benefits present all over the world. This Migration reality is a phenomenon that presents positive as well as negative values as this has resulted in the emigration of human capital, especially the highly skilled youth population from Nigeria to more developed nations of the world seeking out a better standard of living, thereby leaving Nigeria in a condition of brain drain induced by the effects of this human capital mobility.

Abstract

This paper investigated the role of entrepreneurship development as an essential requirement for economic growth and development in selected communities in Osun State, Nigeria. The researcher used the chi-square test and frequency tables. The primary data for the study was sourced through questionnaire administered to 300 respondents. The result revealed that entrepreneurship development has a significant development on economic growth and development as x2 was calculated as 56.86 which was greater than the tabulated table value of 7.92 at 5% degree of significant. The role of entrepreneurs in developing countries is progressively becoming significant in the sense that all available resources in any given situation in the economy must be developed for industrialization and ultimate consumption through entrepreneurial activities. This study shows the impact and potential contribution of businesses on a broad and diverse base as well as their accelerated effect in achieving macroeconomic objectives and improvement of local technology. Therefore, this study recommended that government should place importance on small, medium and large scale (SMEs) industries in particular as a means of economic development especially in a developing state like Osun State. The findings revealed that entrepreneurship development is without doubt a nexus to nation building; it also exhibits the need to sustain and encourage self independence rather than making people to be candidates in the labour market. It also revealed that entrepreneurship development has significant effect on economic growth and development of Osun State.

Abstract

Sustainable Construction (SC) implies employing the use of renewable and recyclable materials with the aim of reducing waste as well as lowering energy consumption. The main purpose of Sustainable Construction is to reduce the adverse environmental effect of the Construction industry (CI). Various stakeholders have inputs in order to achieve SC as there are several emerging roles and duties that need to be attended to in order to ensure that the benefits of SC is delivered. To this end, this research sought to appraise the stakeholder responsible for carrying some emerging SC duties. Extensive literature was sought to identify new/emerging duties towards achieving SC. A well-structured questionnaire was then distributed to professionals in the CI. A total of 100 questionnaires were administered and 76 was retrieved and analysed using mean item score. The result shows the respondents perception of stakeholders responsible for the emerging SC duties identified. Finally, the notion that sustainable construction must be carried out collaboratively by all Stakeholders in the CI is reaffirmed.

Department of Banking and Finance, School of Business Studies, Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe, Oghara.

 

Abstract

The focus of the study is the examination of the social and economic impact of cooperative societies in Nigeria.  Also to be examined is their impact in our rural communities, especially in the grass root, urban and national development. It has been argued that commercial financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies could play greater roles in the advancement of rural development than the cooperative societies. This is so because of the enormous contribution of these financial houses to the rapid, social and economic development of the people, and urbanization.  Data used in this study covered the period between 2001 and 2020.  Descriptive statistical analytical methods involving frequencies and tables were used to test the hypotheses.  The result shows that as many as these societies may be in form, formation and groups, they have their various challenges, targets, aims and objectives.  The study recommends that government should aid and encourage these organizations to enable them stand and perform effectively since they are all contributive factors in the economic development and growth of Nigeria.

Abstract

This study set out to investigate the relationship between stabilization policies, infrastructural development and industrialization process in Nigeria. The study estimated a slightly modified form of the basic St. Louis equation with data ranging from 1981 to 2015. The main finding is that increase in electricity, gas and water infrastructure would facilitate industrialization process in Nigeria. The Johansen co-integration testing approach demonstrates a significant long-run relationship between these three variables. The study found that government revenue (fiscal policy) communication infrastructure, and electricity, gas and water infrastructure have significant effect on the development of crude petroleum and natural gas. The study on solid mineral sector suggests that interest rate (monetary policy) has a significant inverse relationship with the development of solid minerals. Again, the study found that all the infrastructural variables have significant effect on solid mineral development. The result on manufacturing sector suggests that interest rate (monetary policy) has a significant inverse effect on manufacturing sector development. This implies that a decrease in interest rate would spur growth in the manufacturing sector. Also, the result found that transportation infrastructure plays a significant role in the development of the manufacturing sector. At lag 2, result shows that a change in the index of industrial production would cause a change in broad money supply and transportation infrastructure. The study concludes that, with strong determination and positive actions we will surmount our industrialization challenges.

Abstract

The relationship between health outcomes, labour productivity and output in general or industrial output in particular cannot be undermined as it constitutes the life wire of any economy. Its measurements and the roles they play is relevant in policy formulation of the economy, however there seldom exists empirical evidence that simultaneously examined them in Nigeria. It is on this premise that this study examined the effect of health outcome on labour productivity and the impact of labour productivity on industrial output in with the aid of a simultaneous regression model. The study employs time series data spanning 1981-2015 from the Central Bank of Nigeria Statistical Bulletin, 2015, World Bank Development Indicator 2016 and Global Statistical Year Book, June 2016. The results show that health outcome significantly and positively impacts on labour productivity and labour productivity significantly impacts on industrial output as expected. Therefore, health outcomes must be sustained to ensure labour productivity and labour productivity must be optimized to improve industrial output in Nigeria. Nevertheless, health outcome is not significantly influence by health expenditure due to the poor funding in the sector and population growth rate significantly and negatively affects it. This implies that governments at all levels pay attention to the 15% benchmark proportion of health expenditure in their annual budgets. The study further recommends that there is need to checkmate population growth rate vis a vis resources. And more conscious efforts must be made to regulate electricity production in the country to the extent that it plays a significant role on industrial output.

Abstract

There is a growing body of literature that recognises that adoption of sustainable construction practices but the desired traction of practicing the exercise is not gaining vital recognition. Despite its importance, the practice of sustainable construction has not received much attention in developing countries, such as Nigeria. The current research aims research aims at providing insights on the measures to improve and advocate for sustainable development in Nigeria construction sector. A quantitative approach was used for the study and a questionnaire survey was conducted among the professionals and other stakeholders. A descriptive method was used in analysing the collected data. Among the highly ranked sustainability barriers to construction practice are poor sustainability education in academic institutions, lack of incentives for designers to facilitate sustainable design, ignorance of lifecycle cost benefits, sustainable construction regarded as low priority and other issues take priority, and resistance to cultural change in the industry. Taken together, there is a need to improve the knowledge of professional on sustainable construction through training programmes in Nigeria. The research recommends that the construction industry must accurately tackle these barriers by putting in place the following: Financial barrier, Management and leadership; Cultural barriers, Technical barriers, Technological barriers, Political barriers and Awareness barriers.

Abstract

Sustainable development is an organizing principle for meeting human development goals while also sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services on which the economy and society depend, and that the desired result is a state of society where living conditions and resources are used to continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity and stability of the natural system. Africa in the past have known to have achieved to some extent the sustainable development until when the global turbulent and covid-19 set in, and continue to pose negative impact on the human, social and economic growth of Africa nation and the world at large. The paper examined the entrepreneurship approaches for combating global turbulent and covid-19 for sustainable development in Africa. Based on the literature review it was discovered that global turbulent and covid-19 have hindered achievement of sustainable development in Africa. The crisis has touched all segments of the population, all sectors of the economy, and all areas of the world. The economic downturn and social disruption caused by the pandemic is Wreaking havoc on lives and devastating livelihoods, sustainable development indices like poverty, economic growth, energy, hunger, health, education, and living slandered  have been negatively affected. 2020 Africa Sustainable Development Report revealed that COVID-19 pushed between 26 and 40 million in Africa (excluding Northern Africa) into extreme poverty and that Africa score 52.9 percent with a gap of  47.1  percent on the achievement of sustainable development goal as at year 2020. The finding further revealed that with entrepreneurship training  problems like poverty, unemployment, economic growth etc will reduce if not eliminated as well as the tragic of any pandemic in future. Based on the findings it is therefore, recommended among that Government of every Nation in Africa should invest in capacity building for entrepreneurial activities to ensure that their knowledge and skills are updated based on industry practice and to have skill to shift from face to face to remote instruction during future crises, Government of Africa nation should provide all the school with the necessary material, tools and machine needed for entrepreneurship education training.

Abstract

Professional ethics are based on a core set of values that enable optimal sustainable development. Despite, professionals in Nigerian construction industry are frequently involved in unethical practices that result in poor project delivery. As a result, studies connected to causes of unethical practices of professionals in Nigerian construction industry were examined. Though, most recent studies have continued to relate unethical practices in the construction industry to Quantity Surveyors. Unfortunately, all-encompassing unethical practices in the construction industry remain an issue for worry among professionals. It is in this light that this study proposed to evaluate the causes of unethical practices of professionals in Nigerian construction industry, with emphasis to determine whether the causes of unethical practices of professionals contributed to the effect on project delivery. Accordingly, a purposive sample of 80 experienced construction professionals involved in selected projects within F.C.T, Abuja was selected, comprising 40 each of Quantity Surveyors, Structural Engineers, Architects and Builders. Data analysis include Mean Item Score (MIS) for ranking the variables and multiple regression to determine whether the causes of unethical practices of professionals contributed to the effect on project delivery. The results of MIS revealed that the top seven causes of unethical practices of construction professionals are professional indiscipline, love for money (greed), favoritism, weak level of supervision, economic downturn, political influence and poor financial control. The results of multiple regression revealed that the causes of unethical practices make a significant contribution (p<0.05) to the prediction of the effects on project delivery. The overall findings revealed that the most significant unethical practices were common among issues of personal behavior, professional indiscipline, profit maximization and economic downturn. It was thus recommended that construction professional/regulatory bodies should ensure effective punishment for unethical activities at different stages of project delivery.

Abstract

This paper examined the roles and the effectiveness of Audit Committees as provided by corporate governance codes, in relation to corporate sustainability, whether corporate sustainability is as a result of the effectiveness of the ACs.The AC is perceived to be a means of strengthening the external financial reporting process, and also facilitating the detection and prevention of corporate misconduct and scandals. This paper study the case of SATYAM computers and the role played by it AC in the governance process. The study used Secondary sourced data to investigate the roles of AC in the cases study company, a qualitative case study method was employed to investigate the corporate governance and the AC activities. One of the main findings of the study is that many corporate failures are associated with the ineffectiveness of ACs, and that ACs could have prevented the occurrence of several corporate failures if they were efficient. However, the ACs cannot be 100% blamed for the failures, This is because   their effectiveness is a subject to so many factors (independence, industry expertise, information flow, inbuilt willingness to serve, and organizational factors), which are always lacking, and lack of any one factor always renders the AC ineffective. It was also found that ACs can ensure corporate sustainability and tackle the occurrence of corporate failure when the right people are nominated into the committee, and they are independent of any managerial influence.
