Answer
Government should take strict actions against currency brokers who have created this uncertain situation just to earn the money and have put the country into highly volatile conditions. In addition, the first government should announce that it will not allow the dollar to depreciatie. This announcement would lead to discourage the money hoarder who hoards the dollar and wait to increase its value for earnings more in the future.

Can a tuition-free school system be used to enrol out-of-school children as a long-term common cause in a sustainable way? It is obvious that one of the reasons illiteracy breeds and flourishes is when deserving children are placed on automation to drop out of school or never go near school at all for a variety of reasons that cannot be explained in a single word. It is also important that something be done about it. A reasonable systematic solution is required for a systemic difficulty. In Nigeria, the reality of out-of-school children has become unbelievable. What is your take?
Relevant answer
It is the problem of dropping out or dropping out of school that all educational societies have already experienced or are experiencing. Some more than others. How to solve this problem? It is difficult, because the world outside the school promotes functional expectations of life, with attractive remuneration, which the school cannot offer. For this reason, it has to invest in the education of operative competence. With the use of this, in practical terms, the subject will be able to confront, with his/her practical reality in another way, with the mobilization of other availabilities, those that are more useful . In this sense, the school has to change, investing in training courses and not in academic years. The course immediately enables a competence that can be used, with remuneration gains. The attendance of a set of courses can be translated, in curricular terms, in the said academic years.

Dear Colleagues,
The incessant requests by supervisors that samples be sent to foreign laboratories for analysis is becoming a thing of worry for me.
This is to call on international and reputable laboratories in the world to come and site their laboratory in Ibadan, SW Nigeria.
Ibadan is peaceful with the most accommodating people in Nigeria.
I can assure you of great patronage by African scientists. This is because scientists in Nigeria are itching for this. ACTLAB, ACME, SGS, and other reputable labs should come and establish their outlets in Nigeria.

I want to test the impact that regulation has on the continued struggle that Nigeria is facing with financial exclusion. I want to correlate regulations with corruption and heightened government negligence. What research technique is best to adopt. I intend to use data on the economy, financial inclusion and corruption indexes for the last 10years and the regulatory dynamism of the financial sector over the same period
I do not recommended readings on related subject matter.
Regards
Relevant answer
Answer
There is global consensus on the importance of financial inclusion due to its vital role in bringing integrity and stability into an economy's financial system and its role in sustainably fighting poverty. However, it is more pertinent in the case of some African countries, such as Nigeria as a developing nation, to use financial inclusion as a platform not just for growing the financial sector but more as an engine for driving inclusive economic growth.

In the coming decade, Africa will be met with an avalanche of challenges. The consequences of not taking the required steps to avert the coming climate crisis and for not capitalizing on the 4th industrial revolution. These two pose the greatest threat to the welfare and lives of the average African. However, they also present an unlikely opportunity for Africa to shock the world. An opportunity that must not be missed.
If Africans (not necessarily African governments but Africans themselves) can in joint action, create an unprecedented transformation of the African society between now and the end of the present decade (just in time for the climate crisis and the wave of the 4th Industrial revolution), I.e. If Africans can create a new African society capable of averting the impending climate crisis, then Africa can and will capitalize on the 4th industrial revolution.
Subsequently once this happens, Africa will be placed on an unstoppable path of drastic developments in areas such as, infrastructure, agriculture, commerce, media, science and technology etc. In easier terms - A golden age..
Relevant answer
Answer
Amidst the mounting evidence that climate-induced crisis are occurring more frequently and severely than ever before. Today , the number of weather -related disasters is about five times the number of disasters occurred 40 years ago. The number of people worldwide in need of life-saving humanitarian assistance reached 238 million in 2020, an unexpected number. Africans and the world can anticipate the occurrence and potential impact of climate shocks with greater confidence than ever before. With proof of risk, Africans should and must now respond to crises before they happen- a proactive approach that can save lives , secure livelihoods, and more coast -effectively

We found out that most of the ancient name sets seem to have their urheimat in India (e.g. Phoenician, Hyksos, Mitanni, Berber, Sea Peoples and Ethiopian) or have a very strong connection with India. The second highest density of ancient names was found in the river valleys of Volta and Niger in Africa, with relatively high density also along Danube and at the western parts of Eufrat & Tigris.

Girl child education is an important component in the transformation of society, country and the entire world. It plays a key role in the national growth rates rise, decline in the maternal mortality rates, decline in child mortality rates fall and increase e lifetime earning of girls (UNICEF, 2020). A key aspect of girl child education is that it strengthens the economy of the country, reduces inequality, gives individual opportunity to fulfill their potentiality in the society and enable them to become more stable, resilient and useful members of the society. Traditionally, girl-child education (particularly in some states of the region, Northern part of Nigeria) have subscribed to the belief that educating a girl is a waste of time and that western education may impose negative attitude on the girls. Substantive bodies of researches have shown that socio-cultural factors, such as religious belief, and patriarchal norms impact on girl-child education (Jane, 2008; Usman et al., 2019). However, a major problem with these factors is that it will affect girl-child enrolment in schools, access to quality education, school attendance and academic achievement of the child.
Relevant answer
As of my opinion about girls education is necessary for not only herself but it is also important for development of individual , society and community to maintain social relations in a moral way , along with handling family responsibility as daughter, sister, mother, wife by identifying issues at family level taking care of all family members and household chores. It’s our responsibility to social, family norms should be change to be strengthened girl child education, Government already provides supports to girls education with various scholarships. With all this we have to change over attitude specially related to girl child education which can be contributed to progress of nation.

In Nigeria, BDC operators are regulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), who determines Forex buying and selling rates. However, the income earned by BDC operators have continued to come under pressure due to the statutory commission paid to the CBN and the imposition of VAT by the FIRS, who argues that the income earned by the BDC operators are liable to VAT.   Given this challenge, BDC operators and stakeholders had engaged the government to obtain VAT exemption for their operations.

A major function of planning education is to achieve rapid social development at a minimum cost. A situation where planning education using whatever process, methods and technologies has failed to achieve positive results call for a critical re-examination of current planning practices in the south-south of Nigeria. The besetting problem with planning education in the south-south of Nigeria seems to be the fact that education planners and school administrators involved in the planning process are nonchalant about effective use of data, experts, professionals and work as a team towards result oriented plan for sustainable development of the education system.
Relevant answer
Answer
· Education planning should be a long term planning targeted towards the sustainable social, economic and environmental development as well as the sustainable development of the school system.
· It should mainly focus on the future and sustainability and it must be inclusive.
· Environmental issues should be included in it.
· Target of education planning should be to create an environmentally aware next generation that will contribute to ensuring a healthy environment and will be playing sincere a role to maintain it.
· Community development and Social development should be its goals and these should be so designed as to enhance students' community engagement and participation in various community events.
should equip the students with first hand practical knowledge for social problem solving.
· It should encourage recycling, waste management and local resource management to save the money of schools and also for sustainable development of the environment.
· School authority should create environment and facilities for the students' associations to meet regularly in order to identify community problems and find out sustainable solutions to them.
· In the new situation arising out of covid-19, new techniques should be devised in order to retain students in school and prevent student drop-outs.
· By an effective education planning coordination can be ensured and overlapping among activities can be minimized.
· So the education planners should critically re-examine current planning practices and redesign a curriculum to create an environment-friendly next generation and also for a sustainable development of the education system.
· If the education planners and school administrators of south-south of Nigeria considered the above mentioned aspects of education planning, and redesign the curriculum, sustainable development of the education system could be achieved. Scholastica C O Ekere

Hi, I have not heard of a software that can convert qualitative to quantitative. These are both different methods of data collection and unique in purpose. Perhaps the biographical information only can be converted using excel etc, but the rest wont be. Qualitative responses are open ended, inductive in nature and they differ from respondent to respondent. Even if they could be quantitatively coded, it would not be consistent. One should analyse it qualitatively using Nvivo etc, but if you cannot have access to such software, then perhaps do a narrative analysis. Goodluck.

I am working on Community Based Tourism as a Panacea for development in Ekiti State, Nigeria. I need a full discussion on the impacts of Government and Community dwellers on the sustainable development of Community based Tourism.
Relevant answer
Answer
Some years ago I read a paper titled: Community-based tourism development model and community participation, From the authors: Andrea Giampiccoli and Melville Saayman. I am sure this publication will be a great contribution to this discussion.
Abstract
Community-based tourism (CBT) is about social justice, empowerment, equity of benefits, redistributive measures, ownership of tourism sector and holistic community development. The aim of this article is to explore the relationship between Tourism Area Life Cycle (TALC) and CBT by proposing a model depicting the various stages of TALC in relation to CBT, community participation and type of tourist. The research indicates, first, that the understandings of community participation and its relationship with CBT need to be more precise to show that CBT is in itself participatory. CBT can also be described as self-participatory: the community itself initiates and drives the development. Secondly, the findings indicate that tourism development at destinations go through stages during which CBT is gradually jeopardised and marginalised by outsiders and local elite. Tourism destination control, as a consequence of CBT, increases potential growth through external stakeholder support which is important. More research is required to investigate, understand and enhance the role of CBT in tourism destinations for the benefits of the local community and disadvantaged (poorest and socio-economically marginalised) – people in particular.

The research attempts to proffer possible direction that could take our education to full automation so that we may reduce over reliance on humans most pressingly on those science areas where there are few teachers.
Relevant answer
Answer
AI has so many potentials in education if integrated. Such potentials range from virtual assistants/instructors to personalized instruction for individual students. There is also the area of automated grading with real-life feedbacks which are better positioned to guide the students to achieving their learning objectives. These feedbacks are even more highly directional when AI works at the background. In the academic arena, the list is long. In the administrative area as well, AI has many areas it can assists to reduce teachers workloads. It can assist teachers to find out the emotions of their students in a more easier way. It can be used to provide virtual assistance to students at anytime of the day even while the teacher is fast asleep. The gains are many!
However, when AI integration in education is being discussed in relation to Nigeria, I want to posit that it might take a while before such integration is realised. Why? Let me begin by saying that I am not sure if Nigeria is ready to integrate AI into its educational system. Well, I stand to be corrected for that but the point is, how do you integrate such advanced tool as AI into an educational system that is almost dysfunctional? While the gurus in the academic community in Nigeria try as much as possible to make sure the stakeholders (the Government, for instance) see reasons to invest more in education and implement all that needed to be implemented for the lost standard of education in the country to be restored, yet the concerned are not ready despite all the wastages on irrelevancies we read about in the news daily. These people know what obtains in the educational systems of advanced nations but won't even bulge to do the right thing to fix the rot in the educational system back home.
AI cannot work in a dysfunctional system despite all its great potentials.

Background to Study & nbsp; Urban poverty and livelihoods has been the major concern of professionals in the built environment; such as urban economists and urban planners for many decades, which they considered as an & nbsp ;impediments to the physical development of most cities in the developing countries like Nigeria.
Relevant answer
Answer
The economic and social costs of chaotic housing on development The presence of dozens of tin houses at the entrance to various major cities, which have turned into background rules for the practice of many prohibitions, such as trafficking in drugs, prostitution and other illegal activities due to widespread unemployment and high indicators of lack of work opportunities [19]. Studies suggest that the growth of slums is mainly due to the failure to implement the laws on buildings as well as the protection of state-owned land in exchange for the reluctance of the relevant government agencies to implement, as well as the weak interest in regional development, which aims to redistribute the population of the country, and most importantly, the disruption of the housing market and the decrease in the supply of housing units. Inadequacy of supply with the quality of demand, as the proportion of economic housing in the total housing units decreases. These slums cause an increase in the economic and social costs incurred by the state and society alike. They also cause a decline in the results of many of the millennium goals and dimensions of human development, most of which are related to improving the health and social level of the population, and can be summarized as follows: The spread of diseases: Tin neighborhoods are considered a suitable environment for the transmission of diseases and infections due to the high rates of crowding and the lack of clean water sources and sewage channels for waste, in addition to the lack of attention to the general cleanliness of the area as a result of being considered informal housing areas. Malnutrition, and diseases such as chest diseases such as permanent inflammation of the bronchi. Tuberculosis due to lack of proper ventilation. Internal diseases such as malaria, diarrhea and intestinal worms due to the use of contaminated water. Mental illnesses: as a result of the existence of a culture of poverty and the inability to keep up with the outside world in terms of capabilities and standard of living, high birth rates and deaths: School dropout, assault on green spaces and agricultural lands: The increase in tin houses has led to an increase in the number of violations and attacks on green spaces and agricultural lands. Attempts to reduce the spread of informal settlements The reform processes of such a residential environment face very severe difficulty due to the complex urban fabric and the increase in population and construction density of these communities. Therefore, efforts to upgrade these areas have been limited to supplying these areas with public utilities (clean drinking water - sanitation - electricity) without extending to the planning aspects and spaces. Urban and social aspects of this community. In spite of that, this pattern has recorded some positives that can be used to direct this pattern towards urban methods that are commensurate with the urban fabric of cities, and in order for the state to avoid staying in the same closed circle, it seeks to implement a group of attempts to limit the spread of random housing.

Final year project is based on some Sectors affecting the Total Gross Domestic production in Nigeria and after selecting some of these sectors and regressing it on total GDP of the country checking the long run and short run effects of these sectors on the total GDP
And was told i have regressed GDP on GDP!!! using the GDP data from Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN. below...
please can i not check which sector is significant?
Relevant answer
Answer
Shadare Kayode, I think you can examine the casual relationship between total GDP and sectoral GDP in Nigeria using the VAR analysis. The VAR analysis allows the researcher to do Variance Decomposition Analysis (VDA) and Impulse Response Function (IRF). The VDA enables you to examine how variations in sectoral GDP affect variations in total GDP in Nigeria. Also, the IRF enables you to examine how shocks to sectoral GDP affect total GDP. You can also follow this paper: An Empirical Study of Inter-Sectoral Linkages and Economic Growth in India (sciepub.com).

In recent years, the world is moving towards an age where there is a global understanding of the environment and climate change, however, Styrofoam are plastics waste and constitute to a higher portion of these waste. They are commonly used in Nigeria as food packs, cups and other disposables by food vendors becoming a daily necessity linked to problems associated with waste management.
Relevant answer
Answer
The use of these materials should definitely be banned as quickly as possible. According to different studies, styrofoam degradation in the environment may take more than 50 years. In the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic and Haiti are suffering terribly from contamination of rivers, lakes, roadsides and oceans with styrofoam. When burned, they release toxic fumes. Most of these materials ultimately end up in the ocean where many large mammals and fish may suffer drastically from ingesting these materials. Even whales have died from clogged intestines. A recent study by CSIRO (https://www.csiro.au/en/News/News-releases/2020/14-million-tonnes-of-microplastics-on-seafloor ) has indicated massive accumulations of microplastics at the ocean floor. The time for changing is now. Ideally, the changes should be implemented from both directions: top-down, driven by illuminated and decided governmental action (usually slow and compromised) AND bottom-up, driven by educated consumers who reject not only buying, but also using these materials at all opportunities. You may want to support grassroot activities pushing for immediate bans. Sea turtles, dolphins, whales, plus countless other animals and, of course, future generations of humans will thank you for it.

I have observed that most highly rank academics in developing nations e.g Nigeria rarely display mentor- mentee relationship
Relevant answer
Mentor-Mentee relationships should not only be associated with Developing or Underdeveloped countries. There are weaknesses with mentoring in Developed countries which makes this a global societal challenge.
The real challenge in the development of this relationship can be placed on the quality of the broad frame work of each country's Educational policy. When I studied at Teacher's College mentoring never arose and throughout my primary and secondary education mentoring was unknown to me.
Mentoring in my view should not be associated with Developed, Developing or Underdeveloped worlds. Mentoring should be seen as being linked to the commitment of an instructor to ensure that the learner understands and feels appreciated. Mentoring is about a mentee's ability to look back on a learner and be able to identify the progress that learner has made and how fulfilled that learner is and knowing how much you have invested and supported his/her achievements.

Hello, Everybody!
I wil be grateful for any help. I have a problem with frontier function. I want to make a model of life expectancy in 11 countries depending on some factors (consumption of alcohol, school years, gross national income per capita and etc.) using frontier method for panel data (from 2000 to 2013 year) to calculate efficiency of national care system at the end. I've made a model and then used the command
predict te, te
for each country but the meanings are very small and almost the same. Due to the fact I took into consideration different countries (from Australia to Nigeria) it is impossible that efficiency of national care system are equal. Besides, I've calculated u and tried to calculate e^(-u), but what is the difference between u and te? I've spent a lot of time to sort out this, but overall I don't understand clearly:(

IDPs means internally displaced persons. However the African Union has enacted a Convention on the Protection and Assistance of IDPs in Africa. Then I am looking at the state parties obligation and responsibility to the Convention which they have ratified and not domesticated as a national legislation with particular reference to internally displaced persons in Nigeria.
Relevant answer
Answer
@Leonard Opara: Recall that the Kampala Convention (2009) was an adoption of the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement. In itself, the principles are a set of normative, non-binding/non-legal principles that have set the operational standard for addressing issues of internal displacement. They become legal only where national governments domesticate them into legislation. As it stands, Nigeria has not domesticated them. Although, in recognition of the growing number of the displaced population, government established a ministry for humanitarian assistance and relief, in addition to National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). But as it stands, the Ministry is far from addressing durable solutions for the displaced populations and their communities.
